Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has raised $6 million in the first three months of her presidential campaign, reports Politico.

Details: About 135,000 people gave 213,000 contributions that average about $28 per donation, per Politico. Warren has already spent nearly 85% of her funds campaigning.

By the numbers: Warren is in the middle of the pack of the crowded 2020 Democratic field for reported first quarter fundraising. So far, Sen. Bernie Sanders leads the way with $18 million, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris ($12 million), Beto O'Rourke ($9 million) and Pete Buttgieg ($7 million).

  • And while Warren lagged behind other candidates, she still has $11.2 million on hand from her 2012 Senate campaign, reports Politico.

The big picture: Warren is keeping her pledge to stay away from big money fundraisers and accepting donations from PACs and super PACs, focusing instead on raising her campaign funds from grassroots donations.

The U.S. and Israel will announce tomorrow that they are expanding three agreements on scientific cooperation to include Israeli settlements in the West Bank, Israeli and U.S. officials tell me.

Why it matters: This is a substantial policy shift for the U.S., which did not previously allow its taxpayers' money to be spent in the Israeli settlements.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) expressed no regrets about Judge Amy Coney Barrett's controversial confirmation, telling Politico in an interview that he believes the decision to place her on the Supreme Court just a week before the election will help Republicans retain the Senate.

Why it matters: With a week to go until Election Day, many Republicans are concerned that President Trump's unpopularity could cost them the Senate. McConnell has long viewed the transformation of the federal judiciary through the confirmation of young conservative judges as his defining legacy.
