A tale of two fundraisers: Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown

On Wednesday night, Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and her opponent Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass) are both holding campaign fundraisers.

Warren is hosting a policy team trivia night fundraiser in Somerville, Ma.—the cost to attend is $20 per person or $100 for a team of five. Brown’s is a little different—he will be at Chef Michel Richard’s restaurant Central in Washington, D.C. where individuals need $1,000 to attend (and $2,500 to host).
