Heading into her first reelection, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren finished the first quarter of 2018 at the same strong fundraising clip she maintained throughout 2017.
Warren pulled in $3.12 million through the first three months of the year, leaving her with $15 million cash on hand at the end of March, according to data released by the Warren campaign.
Of those donations, 10,422 came from Massachusetts. And the vast majority, 82 percent, came in contributions of $25 or less. Only one percent of Warren’s donations this quarter were larger than $100.
Warren, one of the Senate’s top fundraisers, is raising significantly more than the handful of candidates currently vying for the Republican nomination.
Recent polling finds a 30-point gap between Warren and her nearest challenger and fundraising totals from Q1 show a similar gulf.
State Rep. Geoff Diehl, GOP operative Beth Lindstrom, and businessman and philanthropist John Kingston all raised roughly $300,000 in the first three months of 2018, according to numbers released by each campaign.
