Warren has busy East Coast fundraising schedule too
After a whirlwind of press over Elizabeth Warren’s fundraising activities in California, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Massachusetts has scheduled four fundraising events on the East Coast -- three of them in the Bay State.
Former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Warren returns to Washington on Wednesday to headline a reception for young professionals.
On Monday, Warren is holding a fundraiser in Westwood, Mass., featuring 33 hosts and co-chairs. If these participants have paid the listed price, Warren will raise at least $23,500.
Warren has another event on April 11, at the Newton, Mass. home of Margaret and John Ruttenberg. According to Influence Explorer, the Ruttenbergs have contributed $483,000 to political causes and candidates since 1996.
Recent Massachusetts polls have shown Warren in a close race with the Republican senator she's trying to unseat, first termer Scott Brown. But as of year's end, she was ahead in the money race, having raised $8.9 million to his $8.6 million.
