Warren Raising Bulk Of Campaign Funds Out Of Mass.

This article is more than 7 years old.

Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren is continuing to raise the bulk of her campaign contributions from outside Massachusetts.

Warren's campaign said of the more than $5.7 million she collected during the last three months of 2011, about 69 percent came from out of state.

The remaining $1.8 million came from in-state contributors.

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown's campaign said about 75 percent of the more than $3 million in donations he collected during the same period came from donors inside Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Republican is relying more heavily on donations from political action committees than Warren.

The most recent campaign finance reports show Brown collected more than $1.6 million from PACs in 2011.

That's more than 10 times as much as the $142,000 collected from PACs by Warren, who entered the race in September.
