In final stretch, Democratic House candidates raised $65 million, crushing Republicans two-to-one
One final set of fundraising reports for federal candidates ahead of the November midterms just got filed at the FEC on Thursday, covering all financial activity between Oct. 1 and Oct. 17. The numbers continue to tell the same story: Democrats are dominating Republicans across the board in the battle for control of the House. During this two-and-a-half-week period, Democratic candidates raised $65 million overall, more than twice as much as the $32 million take for GOP campaigns—just as they did in the third quarter of 2018.
