Sen. Raphael Warnock’s record-breaking fundraising sends national message

U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock amassed another record-breaking fundraising haul, while GOP donors egged on by Donald Trump came off the sidelines to boost Republican Herschel Walker’s challenge.

The fundraising reports filed Friday were yet another indication that the battle for Warnock’s seat will attract enormous attention and money, as both parties battle over a seat that could determine control of the U.S. Senate next year.

Warnock raised more than $9.5 million during the three-month quarter, an impressive sum that highlights the extensive fundraising infrastructure the Democrat has built since he entered the political arena in early 2020.

He ended the quarter with about $17.2 million in cash on hand, more than any Georgia U.S. Senate campaign has reported at this stage in an election cycle, thanks to contributions from more than 145,000 donors.

Warnock, the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, has steadily expanded the donor list he put together during last year’s special election campaign to fill the remaining two years of retired Republican Johnny Isakson’s term.
