BOSTON (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren's political action committee has reported raising more than half a million dollars in 2013, money she says will go in part to trying to block a Republican takeover of the Senate.
According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, Warren's PAC for a Level Playing Field took in more than $582,000 in contributions last year.
The PAC, which is separate from Warren's campaign account, doled out $257,000 to other congressional candidates and party committees -- including virtually every member of Massachusetts' all-Democratic congressional delegation.
Warren also donated to other Democratic senators, including Al Franken of Minnesota, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire.
Shaheen is facing a possible challenge from former Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, who recently moved to New Hampshire, but hasn't said whether he'll run.
