Huffington Post- Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren announced in an e-mail to her supporters that she has raised $3.15 million since entering the race to take on Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.).
Warren’s haul was largely raked in through small-dollar donations. According to her campaign’s e-mail, she received 96 percent of her contributions from donors giving less than $100. More than 11,000 citizens of Massachusetts donated to her campaign. The number of donors from out-of-state was not listed in the campaign e-mail.
The consumer advocate has been helped by her star status among liberal bloggers and charismatic online videos that have gone viral.
Prior to announcing her candidacy, Warren was working in the White House as a special advisor helping to set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a government agency first imagined by Warren in an essay for the journal Democracy.
Note: Elizabeth Warren announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate on September 13, 2011
