Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) pushed a $10,000 donation from her campaign committee to a dark money nonprofit established by rising Democratic politician Stacey Abrams, Federal Election Commission filings show.

Abrams - Governor - Georgia - Senate - Run

Abrams, who unsuccessfully ran for governor in Georgia and is now "strongly considering" a Senate run in 2020, established Fair Fight Action, Inc., an Atlanta-based nonprofit, to focus on election reform, education, and increasing voter turnout.

Abrams was listed as Fair Fight's executive director until December when the nonprofit—previously called the Voter Access Initiative—removed language from its bylaws that would allow it to "directly or indirectly" get involved in "any political campaign on behalf of any candidates for public office," the Daily Beast reported.

Group - Abrams - Tour - Ads - Opponent

The group has been used to fuel Abrams's speaking tour and has paid for ads alleging her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, "robbed" her of a victory during the midterm elections.

Fair Fight is a "dark money" group that does not have to disclose its donors, but Warren's most recent filings to the FEC show that the Massachusetts senator cut a $10,000 check on Dec. 26, 2018 from Elizabeth for Massachusetts, her Senate campaign committee, to the group.
