BOSTON (AP) - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is throwing her fundraising muscle behind fellow Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire.
Shaheen is facing a possible challenge from former Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
Warren, who defeated Brown in a 2012 race that was the costliest in Massachusetts history, said in an email to supporters that they helped her raise $40,000 for Shaheen over the weekend.
Warren faulted Brown for failing to agree to the so-called people's pledge in the New Hampshire race. Warren said Brown has "signed on to get the dirtiest, most secretive help he can find" to attack Shaheen.
Brown and Warren signed a similar pledge in 2012, limiting the outside money spent on television, radio and internet ads.
Brown has pointed to Shaheen's out-of-state fundraising, calling her demand for a new pledge "hypocritical and self-serving."
