Elizabeth Warren Out-Raises Scott Brown In Senate Race

08/28/2012 03:36 pm ET

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren out-raised Republican opponent Sen. Scott Brown by more than $1 million in July and early August, injecting more money into the country's most closely watched battle for a seat in the upper chamber.

FEC reports released Monday show that Warren raked in $3.7 million over the last six weeks, while Brown took in $2.3 million during the same period.

Despite Warren's fundraising edge, Brown has more cash on hand -- $14.2 million to Warren's $12.3 million.

With just over two months until Election Day, the Brown-Warren matchup may be one of the country's most expensive contests. The Associated Press reported last month that almost $50 million had been poured into the razor-thin competition by the end of June, a state record.

Brown leads Warren by about four points, according to HuffPost Pollster's trend estimate, which takes into account all public polling available in the race.
