The DSCC continues to have its strongest fundraising cycle ever thanks to small-dollar donors, and will report raising $26.9 million in August and increasing our cash on hand to $41 million heading into September.
This was the committee’s best monthly fundraising haul in history and more than triple our previous monthly fundraising record for August. It is also more than double what the DSCC raised in July 2020. For comparison, the NRSC reported less than $16.4 million in the bank in their most recent filing at the end of July.
Grassroots supporters are clearly fired up to help ensure we elect a Democratic Senate:
“The grassroots community continues to show up for our work to flip the Senate, and this record-shattering report would not have been possible without their support,” said DSCC Chair Catherine Cortez Masto. “The momentum behind Democratic Senate candidates will continue to fuel these races through these final crucial weeks and provide critical resources to ensure we reach voters across these battleground states.”
Thanks to our record-breaking fundraising, the DSCC increased our independent expenditure and has made historic investments in states where Democrats have successfully expanded the Senate battleground map. Over the past month, the DSCC IE began paid TV and digital communications in Arizona, Iowa, Montana, and North Carolina. The DSCC is also making seven-figure coordinated investments in South Carolina and Texas.
DSCC-backed Senate challengers are also continuing to lead the way after outraising vulnerable Republicans in 13 GOP-held seats in Q2. That fundraising strength has extended into the summer — our candidates in top battleground states have continued to announce eye-popping and record-breaking fundraising hauls in July and August:
