BOSTON (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign says she’s helped raise more than $5 million to elect Democrats to the U.S. Senate.

Warren’s campaign said Friday the $5 million figure includes Warren’s appearances at fundraising events for Democratic candidates, the use of her email list to help those candidates raise money, and checks from Warren’s leadership PAC — the PAC for a Level Playing Field.

The campaign appearances have taken Warren to 11 states during the current election cycle.

Warren has also raised money for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which helps elect Senate Democrats.

According to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, Warren had more than $3.8 million left in her campaign account and $1.1 million left in her leadership PAC as of June 30.

Warren won’t face re-election until 2018.
