US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s campaign said Monday that she raised $6.9 million in the first three months of the year, continuing her staggering pace and doubling the figure collected by incumbent Scott Brown.
Warren, a Democrat, is proving an especially prolific fund-raiser in her first run for public office, setting the pace nationally among Senate candidates in the final three months of 2011. A national Democratic official said the party expects Warren will again outrank all other Senate candidates, from both parties, in the recently completed fund-raising quarter, which ended March 31.
Official figures from all Senate campaigns will not be made public by the Federal Election Commission until later this month.
In any other Senate race in the country, Brown’s haul would also be eye-popping. He outraised every Senate candidate nationally, apart from Warren and two self-funded candidates, in the last three months of 2011.
His campaign said Friday that the Republican raised $3.4 million in the first quarter of this year, giving Brown a total of about $15 million in the bank.
