Thats what i thought most of browns money came from outside mass, 70% in fact. There was just to much being spent for it have come from ma citizens alone.

Out-of-state donations buoyed Brown in final campaign days - The Boston Globe In the last 19 days of the race, nearly 70 percent of the 12,773 contributors who gave more than $200 to the Brown campaign were from outside Massachusetts, a Globe review shows. By contrast, in the first 109 days of Brownâ€™s candidacy, when he was still considered a dark horse, less than 8 percent of Brownâ€™s 1,766 contributions of more than $200 were from out-of-staters.
