Another eye-popping fundraising period from Democrat Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts: $5.7 million raised during the fourth quarter of 2011 with a cool $6 million in the bank to end the period.
Warren's campaign said the average contribution was $64 and the number of Massachusetts contributors increased to about 23,000.
The Boston Globe first reported Warren's total.
Warren's fourth quarter total becomes the undisputed the standout of the cycle so far: No non-self-funders have topped her mark in one quarter in any other Senate race so far.
Republican Sen. Scott Brown has a healthy $12.8 million in the bank after a productive $3.2 million fourth quarter. But in just two fundraising periods, Warren has achieved about half of Brown's impressive cash on hand total. That's the sign of a campaign with a lot of enthusiasm behind it.
