The Senate Republicans’ campaign arm raised $ 8 million last month, billing it as its biggest gain for an August off year on record.
The National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) said in a statement that it ended August with $ 25.24 million in the bank and no debt. The $ 8 million raised came from 175,552 contributions, and the average donation was $ 45.17.
“Democrats are responsible for soaring consumer goods prices, a border crisis that has raged since January, and the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left our own troops and allies dry. Voters are turning their backs on the Democrats’ constant failures because they know Democrats have no solutions, ”NRSC Chairman Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) Said.
“Voters know it will be a Republican majority in the Senate that will work to protect their families and hold Joe Biden accountable for abandoning hard-working Americans everywhere.”
The group’s Democratic counterpart, the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC), has yet to release its fundraising figures for August. He raised $ 6.5 million in July and ended that month with $ 10.3 million in hand and $ 2 million in debt.
By comparison, the NRSC raised $ 7.5 million in July and ended the month with $ 24.1 million on hand and no debt.
The fundraising competition takes place in the context of the mid-terms of 2022, during which control of the Senate is at stake.
Democrats currently hold a slim majority in the 50-50 House due to Vice President Harris’ decisive vote, and the party is eager to expand its majority by winning races in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Republicans, meanwhile, hope to regain the chamber by toppling Democratic incumbents in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and New Hampshire.
