It's also meant to show the fundraising prowess Warren would bring to a race with an incumbent sitting on a $10 million warchest.
In addition to the Warren fund, the PCCC has a separate fund set up on ActBlue that has taken in nearly $5,000. That's money that will be devoted to the liberal group's online ads promoting its campaign to draft Warren into the race.
