U.S. senators who were elected in 2012 raised more than $10 million on average during the election cycle — which comes out to $14,351 per day, according to an analysis by a watchdog group.

MapLight, a nonprofit research organization that tracks money in politics, also reported Monday that House members, on average, raised $1,689,580 apiece, which translates to an average of $2,315 each day. The group looked at campaign contributions to members of the current Congress from Jan. 1, 2011, to Dec. 12, 2012, based on data from the Federal Election Commission as of Feb. 13.


Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, had the most total receipts of the lawmakers in the group’s analysis, with $42,506,349, and Rep. Eni Faleomavaega, American Samoa’s non-voting delegate to the U.S. House, raised the least, bringing in $110,570.
