BOSTON (AP) – Massachusetts Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren is making an end-of-the-year pitch to help retire her campaign debt.

Warren's chief of staff, Mindy Myers, sent an email
to the Democrat's supporters saying the campaign has set a goal of
raising another $200,000 by midnight Dec. 31.

In the e-mail, Myers says Warren is ready to be sworn in next week, but needs help paying the campaign's final year-end bills.

Warren defeated Republican Sen. Scott Brown last month in what was easily the most expensive campaign in Massachusetts history.

Despite raising $42 million, Warren ended the campaign more than $400,000 in the hole.

Warren could become the state's senior senator
shortly after taking office, if Sen. John Kerry is confirmed as
secretary of state and resigns the seat he's held for nearly three
decades.
