Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren raised an extraordinary $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2012, her campaign manager announced in an email to supporters. That means the presumptive Democratic nominee for Senate in Massachusetts more than doubled the fundraising of Sen. Scott Brown (R), who raised $3.4 million in the first three months of the year.

“Scott Brown still has $4 million more in the bank than we do, and there’s a lot of work ahead to do to close the gap,” campaign manager Mindy Myers wrote. Brown ended March with $15 million in cash on hand, so that means Warren ended the quarter with about $11 million.

Roll Call rates the race as a Tossup.
