Elizabeth Warren announced Wednesday that her campaign brought in $5.7 million in the final three months of 2011, a massive figure that easily tops the $3.2 million Republican Sen. Scott Brown brought in over the same time period.
Both figures are somewhat staggering for a Senate race, although the fight for the seat once held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy is not exactly your ordinary race. Many politicians and pundits from both parties see it as the most important congressional races of 2012, and the New York Times reminds us that it is widely expected to be "one of the costliest and most intense in the nation."
Politico does the math for us and explains that Warren’s 4Q fundraising brings her total to $8.8 million since she launched her campaign in September. But while the liberal favorite has more than $6 million on hand, Brown has more than twice that in the bank.
