The total amount of money raised for the 2018 midterms has reached $3.96 billion, according to data from the Center For Responsive Politics. With weeks to go before election day, that number surpasses the $3.84 billion spent during the entirety of the 2014 midterms.
The number will continue to rise, as it does not include the vast majority of third-quarter fundraising figures that must be filed with the Federal Election Commission by the end of the day on Oct. 15. The total figure includes funds raised by candidates, political parties, political action committees and other groups, and expenditures from outside groups, for the purpose of the 2018 elections.
Fundraising records for candidates are already being broken across the country. Popular Democratic candidates — such as Beto O’Rourke and his $38 million third-quarter haul — are raising sums that were previously unheard of. As a result, Democrats are substantially outraising Republicans overall.
