Consumer advocate and Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., recently signed an agreement that seeks to curb the influence of outside groups in the Senate race. Notably, neither received much in the way of PAC donations, at least as percentage of their overall hauls. The New York Times:
Warren ... received less than 2 percent of her fourth-quarter fund-raising haul from nonpolitical party committees like PACs, while about 11 percent of donations to ... Brown, came from such committees.
According to data filed with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday, $109,837.71 of Ms. Warren's total contributions of almost $5.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 came from PACs and the like. Mr. Brown received $351,791.62 of his quarterly total of $3.1 million from such committees.
