Details of where Mass. GOP Sen. Brown, chief Democratic rival Warren drew donor support
An Associated Press analysis of itemized campaign donations to Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts and his chief Democratic rival, Elizabeth Warren, found the candidates are relying on very different financial support networks.
Brown pulled in more than $880,000 last year in donations from bankers, investors, venture capitalists, private equity professionals and others in the financial services sector compared to just $175,000 for Warren.
Brown received about $185,000 in donations from health care and pharmaceutical workers, compared to the $165,000 Warren received. The bulk Warren's donations, $136,000, came from doctors and nurses compared to Brown, who took in about half that much from doctors and nurses.
Warren took in far more than Brown from lawyers, collecting nearly $700,000 compared to Brown's $348,000.
Warren, a consumer advocate and Harvard Law School professor, received more than $309,000 from backers who identified their profession as "professor" ' more than ten times the $22,000 Brown received from self-described professors.
Warren collected more than $203,000 from writers, filmmakers, film editors and artists ' including Hollywood heavyweights like Barbra Streisand and Danny DeVito. Brown pulled in less than $15,000 from the same group.
OUT OF STATE:
Brown collected about 40 percent of his itemized donations from outside of Massachusetts compared to Warren who collected 63 percent of her itemized donations from out of state backers. Warren's second most generous state, after Massachusetts, was California. Brown's was New York.
