How she hates the white rich folks! Democrat Sen. Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren raked in millions from campaign donations last year. Story from Associated Press below.

BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is raking in millions in campaign donations as she looks ahead to a re-election bid next year.

According to an Associated Press review of Warren’s latest campaign finance reports, the Massachusetts Democrat took in a hefty $5.9 million in campaign contributions from January 2015 through the end of 2016.

Contributions to Warren spiked in the final three months of last year, when she took in more than $1 million. That period from Oct. 1 through the end of December included the election of Republican President Donald Trump.

Nearly all of Warren’s contributions came from individual supporters, with just $34,000 from political action committees and other groups.

Warren ended 2016 with $4.8 million left in her campaign account. She began the two-year period with just over $1.6 million in cash on hand.

Warren has been a top Democratic foil to Trump.

She assailed Trump during the 2016 campaign, calling him “fraudster-in-chief,” among other things. Trump responded via Twitter, labeling her “goofy Elizabeth Warren” and referring to her as “Pocahontas,” a reference to Warren’s claim to have Native American ancestry.

Warren has used Trump to help spur donations to her campaign. She sent out a fundraising email to supporters last week saying that deep-pocketed conservative groups were already running ads against her.
