Most Of Warren's Early 2012 Contributions From Outside Mass.

More than half of Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren's contributions so far this year have come from out of state, WBUR's Fred Thys just reported in our Newscast.

According to Fred, 66 percent of Warren's contributions came from outside Massachusetts in the first quarter of 2012, compared to 29 percent for Republican Sen. Scott Brown.

Some other fund-raising numbers, courtesy of Fred, from the likely Senate match-up:

  • Compared to Warren, Brown in early 2012 received a larger percentage of his money from political action committees. However, both candidates received most of their money from individual donors.
  • The median contribution to both Brown and Warren was $250.
  • Since entering the race, Warren has out-raised Brown, $15 million to his $11 million.
  • Warren has $14 million in the bank, compared to Brown's $10 million.
