Warren Knows How To Money Bomb


Elizabeth Warren ($3.15 million) The consumer advocate and Harvard Law professor's enormous fundraising figure was the most impressive of the period, easily outpacing Sen. Scott Brown's, R-Mass. quarterly total of $1.55 million. Brown still has a lot of money in the bank ($10.5 million) but Warren's opening statement signals she'll be right there with him in 2012.(JOSH REYNOLDS/AP)

A lot of very qualified, potentially strong Senate candidates raised less than $1 million over the last three months. Massachusetts Senate contender Elizabeth Warren has raised that much in the last 24 hours.

Warren's campaign said it had broken the seven-figure mark on its first money bomb around 9 p.m. this evening. Just 20 minutes later, they're close to $1.1 million, according to a running tally on her website.

There aren't many candidates who can muster that kind of support in a money bomb. One of them, though, is Warren's opponent: Almost exactly two years ago, when Republicans started to think they had a real shot at winning the seat, Sen. Scott Brown raised more than $1 million a day, three days in a row.

Warren and Brown are jockeying back and forth on the best method of keeping outside groups out of their race. Here's a novel concept: Both candidates could just buy up all the television air time themselves. After all, based on their ludicrous fundraising pace, it looks like they'll be able to afford it.
