Senate GOP Hopefuls Lack ‘Small-Dollar’ Fundraising Without Trump

Senate GOP Hopefuls Lack 'Small-Dollar' Fundraising Without Trump

Senate Republican hopefuls in the ten most competitive Senate races struggle with “small-dollar” campaign contributions compared to their Democrat opponents, according to an Axios analysis of the Federal Election Commission fundraising data. At the same time, former President Donald Trump’s donations of less than $200 have flourished.

Axios’ analysis showed that Democrats are still outraising the Republicans’ best “small-dollar” fundraising in the race.

Georgia’s Senate Republican candidate, Herschel Walker, raised roughly $8 million in “unitemized” donations until June 30, the last filing deadline. Still, Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock raised $14 million in “small-dollar” donations in the same amount of time.
