Grim Fundraising Realities for the GOP — Significant Cash Disparities Between Senate Dem and GOP Candidates
From The Daily Beast:
In audio obtained by The Daily Beast from a July luncheon with the Southern Hills Republican Women, Laxalt, amid the sounds of clinking cutlery, said, “The Democrats have unlimited money, they have unlimited money. You think we have it bad here? Masto has, she just did $10 million she has to spend, we have $2 million. She’s on TV now because she has money and we don’t.”
“In Georgia, it’s $20 million to $3 million. In Ohio, it’s $12 million to $1 million,” Laxalt told the attendees, who paid between $36 and $41 to hear candidates speak at Dragon Ridge Country Club in Henderson, Nevada, according to an Eventbrite for the event.
In Ohio, J.D. Vance (R) has raised over $3 million to Rep. Tim Ryan’s (D) more than $21 million. In Pennsylvania, Mehmet Oz (R) has raised almost $19 million to Pennsylvania Lieutenant Gov. John Fetterman’s almost $26 million. In Florida, Sen. Marco Rubio (R) has raised roughly $36 million to Rep. Val Demings’ (D) roughly $47 million. And in Arizona, Republican Blake Masters has raised just under $5 million, which pales in comparison to incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly (D) $52 million.
