Senate Hopeful Warren Outraises Brown In Early 2012

This article is more than 7 years old.

Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren raised more than twice as much as Republican incumbent Sen. Scott Brown during the first three months of the year.

On Monday, Warren reported raising $6.9 million from the beginning of January to the end of March, compared to Brown's $3.4 million.

About 64 percent of Warren's donations came from out of state. The campaign had previously said Warren received $2.5 million from in-state donors during the three-month period.

Brown's campaign hasn't said how much of the $3.4 million it raised came from in-state donors.

Brown now has about $15 million in his re-election account; Warren has $11 million on hand.

Warren's campaign said 30,000 people from 350 cities and towns across the state have now contributed to her campaign.

The hotly contested race is expected to be one of the most expensive Senate races in the country.
