A “money bomb” for Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — timed to coincide with the reelection launch of her rival, Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), netted almost $1.2 million for the consumer protection advocate.
Warren raised about $1,194,000 on Thursday in what her campaign called a grassroots money drive that signaled overwhelming enthusiasm for her campaign.
“Today the message is clear: We have the grassroots momentum and enthusiasm to take the ‘People’s Seat’ back from Wall Street and other powerful interests,” Warren said in a statement. “I am grateful for this show of support and will keep working my heart out for the small businesses and middle class families who deserve someone on their side in the Senate.”
This tremendous haul is yet another powerful demonstration of Warren's ability to inspire people everywhere. She needs every bit of this money too, both because she still trails Brown in cash on hand and because it won't be long before Karl Rove and Wall Street start throwing up even more negative ads against her.
