US Senator Scott Brown’s campaign said he raised $3.4 million in the first three months of the year, giving the Republican about $15 million in the bank.
His main Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Warren, has not released her full tallies for the first quarter, but they are likely to be higher.
Warren’s campaign said earlier this week that she had raised $2.5 million from Massachusetts residents alone. She has previously received more than 60 percent of her itemized contributions from out-of-state donors.
Both sides are working relentlessly to raise money in an election that is expected to be close, with control of the US Senate at stake.
About 71 percent of Brown’s first-quarter donors are from Massachusetts, his campaign said. His aides would not say how many dollars that represented, but the Warren campaign said in a release that it believes it has outraised Brown among Massachusetts residents in the same period.
