    All the Hollywood stars, and all the Emily’s List money, can’t put Elizabeth Warren’s credibility together again

    All the Hollywood stars, and all the Emily’s List money, can’t put Elizabeth Warren’s credibility together again

    Scott Brown raised over $5 million in the 2nd Quarter of 2012, his best fundraising quarter yet, but less than Elizabeth Warren raised in the quarter, via Boston Globe:

    Scott Brown’s campaign said this evening that he raised $5 million in the most recent fundraising quarter, his best to date in a Senate race, but short of rival Elizabeth Warren’s $8.67 million haul over the same period.

    Both candidates are among the top money raisers in the country, with Warren leading all congressional candidates as of April.

    According to the campaign, the Senator has a total of $15.5 million in the bank, compared with Warren’s $13.5 million.

    Brown’s campaign said today that two-thirds of his donations came from inside the state, a figure that is intended to draw a contrast with Warren, who has raised the majority of her itemized contributions (those over $200) from out of state.

    “We are extremely grateful for the strong showing of support for Senator Brown from the people at home who know him best,” said John Cook, Brown campaign’s finance director, said in a statement.

    Both candidates will have enough money for the fall election.  In a small state like Massachusetts, there’s only so much saturation you can do.

    The election will not be decided because Warren raises more money from Hollywood and Emily’s List.  They don’t vote.

    And all the Hollywood stars, and all the Emily’s List money, can’t put Elizabeth Warren’s credibility together again.

    Update 7-12-2012:  Michael Patrick Leahy notes:

    An analysis of available Federal Election Commission filings indicates that Warren’s fundraising advantage comes entirely from out-of-state.

    Brown is an ingrate and MA deserves both of them. He could’ve had the TP roaring behind him, but he couldn’t wait to jettison those who helped him rise.

    Don’t be too sure about the money, Professor. You can saturate a small state quickly with advertising, sure.

    But the ground game? The GOTV effort? Oh, that’s money, a lot of money. And volunteers, and staffers, and lots of paid people to drive the vans, make the phone calls, and get the voters into the booths. If Prof. Warren has (say) a 2:1 edge in money, it’ll be that much more she can use to buy ACORN (which is where it will go, bank on it).

    Senator Brown needs an A+ ground game if he’s going to win this.

    Professor, I think you have the rhyme wrong, its

    “All the Hollywood stars, and all the Emily’s List money, can’t make Elizabeth Warren a Cherokee again”

    I think the more biting slogan, Obama / Warren 2012, “Change into something stupid”

    Or Obama / Warren 2012, “Let’s double down on freud”

    Egad! Warren looks like Al Franken. I need a shower.
