Sen. Scott Brown Raises $3.2M

Sen. Scott Brown has raised more than $3.2 million during the final three months of 2011 for his re-election bid. The Massachusetts Republican's campaign announced Monday in an email to supporters that his fundraising push during the end of last year leaves him with $12.8 million cash on hand.

Brown will officially kick off his re-election campaign with an event in Worcester on Jan. 19.

Democrat Elizabeth Warren, the favorite to win the Democratic nomination to face Brown, got off to a strong fundraising start.

The consumer advocate and Harvard law professor raised about $3 million during the third quarter of 2011, which was twice as much as Brown raised for the same period. Warren has not released her fundraising report for the fourth quarter of 2011.
