Raphael Warnock Takes in $17 Million During Fundraising Quarter

Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) took in more than $17 million in the previous fundraising quarter for his re-election campaign.

Warnock’s campaign, which will take on Republican Herschel Walker in the November election, detailed the average donation was $37 and came from more than 250,000 donors.

“This haul and the tens of thousands of grassroots donors lining up to support this campaign in record numbers are just the latest sign that Georgians see Reverend Warnock working on their behalf in the U.S. Senate and they are ready to help propel our campaign to victory,” Warnock’s campaign manager Quentin Fulks said in a statement. “They know Herschel Walker has spent his campaign misleading the people of Georgia about his record and making bizarre and false claims. While he keeps showing the people of Georgia he isn’t ready to represent them, we’ll keep working hard to show the people of Georgia that Reverend Warnock is fighting for them and they have a clear choice this November.”

While Warnock has proven himself to be a prolific fundraiser, most of the donations in previous fundraising quarters have come from out-of-state donors. Data from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) shows that California donors ranked the highest.

Conversely, GOP candidate Herschel Walker took in more than $6 million over the same period.

“Team Herschel and I are so grateful for the incredible outpouring of support we’ve received from people who truly believe in our campaign and what we will deliver for Georgia,” Walker said. “We are so thankful for every single voter, door knocker, volunteer, and donor who has worked with our campaign to defeat Raphael Warnock.”

Despite the wide fundraising margin, the RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Warnock with a slight 1.6-point margin.
