The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) announced a record fundraising haul for March and for the 1st quarter of 2022:
The Senate Republicans’ campaign arm raised $43 million during the first quarter of 2022, breaking its fundraising records as it gears up for an aggressive midterm cycle, Axios has learned…
The quarterly total brings the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s overall cash on hand to $44.1 million — the highest in its history.
It’s also the most the NRSC has raised during any previous March or first quarter, the committee told Axios.
NRSC chairman Sen. Rick Scott made the announcement yesterday in a meeting with Senate Republicans. He listed some of the Senate seats the GOP will be targeting.
“Senate Republicans have the war chest and the enthusiasm to oust radical Senate Democrats in November,” Scott said. “Our team breaks records every month and that’s because the American people are sick and tired of the failed policies pushed by Joe Biden and rubber-stamped by Democrats like Mark Kelly, Catherine Cortez Masto, Maggie Hassan, Raphael Warnock, and Michael Bennet. Hardworking families cannot afford a Democrat majority any longer.”
While Scott’s statement stayed on offense, listing Democratic Senators in Arizona, Nevada, New Hampshire, Georgia and Colorado that the NRSC will target in 2022, a share will go toward defense as well. Much of the money will likely be spent in Florida, where GOP Sen. Marco Rubio is defending his seat from a well-funded challenge by Democratic Rep. Val Demings.
