Why do Democrats often run corporate-backed candidates? Because true progressives "can't raise the money needed to win," right?
Elizabeth Warren is changing that conventional wisdom. She DOUBLED Republican Sen. Scott Brown's fundraising in the first quarter of 2012!
PCCC members like you have donated a whopping $678,803 to Warren's campaign -- 37,500 donations averaging $18 each. That's absolutely stunning! Brown emailed supporters asking "How in the world could she raise so much?" and blamed "the Far Left Juggernaut." He screamed "WE MUST WIN" and asked for emergency donations.
We have momentum, but a new poll shows Warren up by just 1 point. Can you help maintain her fundraising advantage by donating $3 to her campaign today? Click here.
A full copy of Scott Brown's email is below. This is actually not the first time he panicked.
Last August, Talking Points Memo reported, "On the heels of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s $100,000 campaign cash haul on Warren’s behalf, Brown’s up with a new fundraising appeal begging supporters to help him before it’s too late."
Brown's desperate appeals are getting mocked across the Internet. But with the advantages of incumbency and a neck-and-neck race, we can take nothing for granted.

A Warren victory will send a national message that when Democrats campaign as true progressives, they win. Thanks for being a bold progressive.

I want you to know exactly what we are up against:
Thanks to you and thousands of others, our campaign raised $3.4 million in the last quarter, but Professor Elizabeth Warren raised twice that amount: $6.9 million. How in the world could she raise so much?
She is a far-left ideologue and her liberal friends from across the country are helping her: She has the Harry Reid Democrats, the Hollywood Crowd, the Far Left Juggernaut, the Occupy Wall Street Bunch, and the Massachusetts Machine raising money hand-over-clenched fist.
This is the #1 Senate race in the country and our rival will have virtually unlimited money to burn. You have been a terrific supporter, but I wanted you to know what we are facing.
Warren's fundraising is breaking every record!
Will you help me again?
Your online contribution will help stop Professor Warren's election to the U.S. Senate.
WE MUST WIN . . . if she wins, she will take her place among the most ardent leftist ideologues in the United States Senate.
- Warren will raise taxes. I won't.
- Warren is soft on illegal immigration. I'm not.
- Warren wants to go even further than Obamacare. I want it repealed.
- Warren believes in big government power. I believe in people power.
Thanks for your continued support.
Senator Scott Brown
