The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Election 2020: Democrats Ossoff, Warnock outraise Republican opponents

Georgia Democrats outraised their Republican opponents in both U.S. Senate races and two high-profile House contests, according to campaign finance reports filed Wednesday.

Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign said he raised $3.45 million from April to June and has $2.5 million in cash on hand. Republican U.S. Sen. David Perdue raised roughly $2.2 million during the same period but has much more — about $10.7 million — in the bank.

In the state’s other U.S. Senate race, both of the leading Republicans raised less than Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock, who collected roughly $2.9 million during the reporting period. Warnock has roughly that same amount, $2.88 million, in cash on hand.

He is considered the leading Democrat in the special election for U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s seat. She raised $912,106 in the second quarter, some of that money coming from political committees controlled by other Republican senators. She also loaned her campaign $5 million during the reporting period, bringing the total amount of personal funds invested to $15 million. The senator has roughly $7 million remaining in her account.

U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, Loeffler’s most formidable fellow Republican opponent, raised about $1.3 million and has $2.6 million in cash on hand.

Other candidates in the special election race include Democrat Matt Lieberman, who raised $283,606 this quarter and has $305,874 remaining in his account, and Democrat Ed Tarver who collected $73,955 in donations and has $31,019 in the bank.
