Democratic Senate campaigns and the campaigns of independents caucusing with the Democrats have raised more than twice as much as Republican senatorial campaigns, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Of the $496.2 million raised by Senate candidates since 2019, Democratic candidates raised $289.6 million, whereas Republicans have only raised $146.1 million. The Democratic total rises to $338.5 million when donations for Sens. Bernie Sanders, Angus King and Kyrsten Sinema, independents who caucus with the Democrats, are considered.

 

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin recently announced he will not seek reelection, so the $11.3 million he raised was subtracted from the FEC’s figure. Roughly $50 million of the funds Democratic senatorial campaigns raised came from the candidates running in California’s Senate primary as Democrats.

Republicans suffered a slate of defeats during Tuesday’s elections after being outspent by Democrats in five out of six key races. Democrats spent more on advertising during the elections in Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Republicans failed to retake the governor’s mansion in Kentucky, lost seats in the state legislatures of Virginia and New Jersey, were unable to pick up a state supreme court seat in Pennsylvania and failed to defeat a ballot measure enshrining the right to an abortion in Ohio’s constitution, a state former President Donald Trump won by 8 points in 2020:snip:
