Sen. Warren Raising Cash to Aid Fellow Democrats

elizabeth-warrenBOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is hoping to block Republicans from gaining control of the Senate in 2014 by using her fundraising muscle to bolster the candidacies of fellow Democrats facing election in the new year.

On New Year’s Eve, Warren’s campaign announced that it had raised more than $492,000 for her political action committee and hoped to break the half-million dollar mark before the end of the day.

In a recent email to supporters, Warren said one goal of her “PAC for a Level Playing Field” is to prevent a possible takeover of the Senate by what she called “a gang of extremist Republicans.”

Among those Democratic incumbents Warren is trying to help in 2014 are Sens. Al Franken of Minnesota, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire.
