Scott Brown Posts Impressive Fundraising Totals To Close 2011

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) is likely to face a daunting re-election campaign this year, but new fundraising numbers suggest that he will be financially equipped to hold his own against Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren. Roll Call reports that Brown posted an impressive $3.2 million haul in the final quarter of 2011. That fundraising burst to close the year gave the incumbent, who assumed the late Ted Kennedy’s senate seat in a special election in early 2010, a total of $12.8 million in his coffers at the end of December. Brown will need every penny, as Warren raked in over $3 million in the weeks following her campaign announcement.
