Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, have something in common: their wedding anniversaries. Both candidates celebrate their respective anniversaries today, July 12.
Brown, 52, is celebrating his 26th anniversary with wife Gail Huff, a reporter for ABC News’ Washington, D.C., affiliate WJLA-TV, The Boston Globe reported. Warren, 63, is celebrating her 32nd anniversary with husband Bruce Mann, a fellow Harvard law professor.
Brown and Warren are locked in a costly and close Senate race. Polling shows the two candidates in a virtual dead heat, and the race is the most expensive Senate race in the country in terms of money raised, and the second most expensive in terms of money spent, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Statements from the respective campaigns earlier this week showed that Brown’s campaign raised $5 million in the second quarter of 2012, while Warren’s campaign raised $8.6 million. The Brown campaign ended the quarter with $15.5 million cash on hand. Warren’s campaign reports having $13.5 million cash on hand.
