Mass. Dems Begin Raising Cash To Challenge Brown
Democratic Senate hopeful Alan Khazei has raised more than $920,000 in the past three months as Democratic challengers to Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown begin stockpiling money for next year's campaign.
Newton Mayor Setti Warren, who is also challenging Brown, raised more than $122,400 during the same three-month period ending June 30. Bob Massie raised $43,000, while Salem-based immigration lawyer Marisa DeFranco raised about $6,000.
Wayland state Rep. Tom Conroy and Newton resident Herb Robinson are also running for the Democratic nomination. They did not immediately return emails seeking their fundraising totals.
A Brown spokesman said his campaign did not yet have his fundraising total for the second quarter.
Brown has a campaign war chest of more than $8 million, much of it left over from last year's special election.
