Ed Markey Hires Elizabeth Warren’s Fundraising Team

Posted by | January 12, 2013 09:57 | Filed under: Top Stories

The Massachusetts congressman appears to be in it for the long haul:

Michael Pratt, who served as Warren’s national finance director, and Colleen Coffey, who headed fund-raising in Massachusetts, were labeled a “dynamic duo” by one Democrat familiar with the hirings who confirmed them for the Globe.

Pratt and Coffey helped Warren outraise not only her Republican rival, then-Senator Scott Brown, but every other 2012 congressional candidate in the country.

Their hirings add to the momentum Markey has built as the Malden Democrat girds to mount a campaign to replace Senator John F. Kerry, who is expected to resign to become the country’s next secretary of state.
