Warnock, a first-time candidate, more than quadrupled his second quarter haul after outraising the field for two consecutive quarters
Atlanta, GA – Today, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the Warnock for Georgia campaign will report raising at least $12.8 million in the third quarter, bringing the campaign’s total haul to over $17 million for the cycle. Warnock’s fundraising more than quadrupled from the second quarter amid the start of his “Georgia Voices” tour and a slew of polls showing him surging ahead in the U.S. Senate special election. Since entering the race, the pastor has also received over 500,000 individual contributions.
The new numbers, combined with major endorsements from Democratic leaders such as Congresswoman Lucy McBath and former presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, highlight the growing narrative that Warnock’s unique candidacy and resonance with Georgians have positioned him as the front-runner with just over a month until Election Day.

- Democrat Raphael Warnock will report raising more than $12.8 million over the last three months of his campaign to oust U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a wild special election that will almost certainly stretch into next year.
- Wanrock, the pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, has collected more than $17 million from 500,000 separate contributions since entering the race this year.
- In previous filings, he’s outraised both Loeffler, who is self-financing her campaign, and U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, her most formidable Republican rival.
- … recent polls show him edging away from the pack, including a Quinnipiac survey this week that pegged Warnock as the frontrunner.
