Sen. Brown Adds Nearly $2M To Campaign Coffers

This article is more than 8 years old.

Sen. Scott Brown has raised nearly $2 million for his upcoming re-election campaign over the past three months as several Democrats line up to challenge the Massachusetts Republican.

Brown's campaign said Wednesday that it ended the second quarter of 2011 with $9.6 million in total cash on hand.

The senator's campaign finance director, John Cook, said in a statement that donors are responding to the Republican's "pro-jobs message" and his work to control federal spending and debt.

Several Democrats have announced plans to challenge Brown in the November 2012 election.

Brown's second-quarter fundraising total of $1.98 million was more than twice that of the nearest Democratic challenger, City Year co-founder Alan Khazei, who reported raising more than $920,000 in the three-month period.
