FUNDRAISING ROUNDUP: Over 40 Democratic challengers out-raise GOP incumbents in Q1 of 2018

The fundraising results for the first quarter of 2018 have put a spotlight on many of the incredible Democratic candidates who are building robust, grassroots-driven campaigns. Clearly, these candidates will be well equipped to tell their impressive stories straight to voters.

These totals also expose a shockingly large number of House Republicans who are ill-prepared for their reelections and have not caught on to the significant headwinds they face.

“Democratic candidates are out-working and out-organizing vulnerable Republican incumbents across the largest House battlefield in over a decade,” said DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law. “The reality is that a significant number of Republican incumbents have proven complacent and unable to locate those old campaign muscles. In contrast, Democratic campaigns are fueled by a surge of energy and grassroots donations, ensuring that they will have the resources needed to tell their stories and outline their records of service to voters.”
