Former senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) raised more than $2 million between April and June for his U.S. Senate campaign in New Hampshire, a campaign aide confirmed to Post Politics, a hefty sum for the underdog challenger.
The second-quarter fundraising period came to a close Monday. It's Brown's first full quarter as a Senate candidate in New Hampshire. His campaign did not say how much money he had on hand. At the end of March, Brown had about $275,000 in the bank.
Brown was a productive fundraiser as a candidate for Senate in Massachusetts in 2010 and and 2012. His latest fundraising total was first reported by WMUR.
Brown is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D). A recent poll showed Shaheen leading Brown by 10 points.
Shaheen has not yet released her second quarter totals. At the end of March, she had $4.4 million in her campaign account, after raising more than $1.5 million during the first three months of the year.
