Democrats Take Edge in Cash as Parties Raise Money for Midterms

  • RNC raised more than Democratic rival, but spent more as well
  • Both parties sent money to Virginia for tight governor’s race

The Republican National Committee raised more than its Democratic rival in September but saw its cash advantage eclipsed as the two parties stockpile money before the 2022 midterm elections, according to their latest filings with the Federal Election Commission.

The Democratic National Committee brought in $11.4 million and spent $9.5 million in September. Along with the Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund, an allied committee that raises money for the DNC and its state affiliates, the party started October with a combined war chest of $74.5 million.
