Sen. Warren heading into election year with $14M in account
BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is heading into her first re-election campaign with more than $14 million in her account.
Warren campaign officials said the Massachusetts Democrat raised more than $2.8 million during the last three months of 2017, leaving her with $14.1 million in her account.
Warren’s campaign said the vast number of those donations came in amounts of less than $100.
One of Warren’s Republican challengers, state Rep. Geoff Diehl, said he has raised $1 million for his campaign overall, but did not say how much he had in his account at the end of 2017.
Two other GOP candidates, one-time Mitt Romney aide Beth Lindstrom and businessman John Kingston, haven’t posted year-end totals.
Warren is also facing a challenge from technology entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai, running as an independent.
