Jack McCoy For Coakley, Mac Taylor For Brown
Sports figures, Hollywood stars and members of Congress are abundant in the rosters of last-minute contributors to Martha Coakley (D) and Scott Brown (R) ahead of Tuesday’s Senate special election in Massachusetts.
CQ Politics early Tuesday analyzed the most recent campaign finance reports, which Coakley and Brown are required to file periodically to the Senate’s public records office in Washington, D.C. Those documents must itemize contributions of $1,000 or more that are received in the past 48 hours.
Judging from the size of their recent reports, Brown has the momentum. His campaign filed a 67-page report on Jan. 15 and a 72-page report on Jan. 17. Coakley’s campaign filed a 25-page report on Jan. 16, a 26-page report on Jan. 17 and an 11-page report on Jan. 18.
