Though the Federal Election Commission second quarter campaign disclosure deadline is still days away, certain campaigns are already releasing some of their basic financial numbers. In two of the top Senate races, candidates in both parties are raising record sums of campaign cash.
In Arizona, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Phoenix) raised $3.25 million for her US Senate campaign during the second quarter and reports having well over $5 million in her campaign account. Rep. Martha McSally (R-Tucson), engaged in a Republican primary that will cause her to spend a large portion of her resources before getting to the general election, also raised $3 million in the quarter and has $4.5 million in her bank account.
In the mega-bucks state of Texas, Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke, a Congressman from El Paso, hauled in a whopping $10.4 million into his campaign coffers and has $14 million ready for his general election campaign. Sen. Ted Cruz (R) drew $4.6 million and has $10.4 million in his account. Needless to say, both men will have the ability to communicate their message to the Texas electorate.
