The 2022 midterms are fast approaching and new reports indicate that the Democrats have a major problem.
They are having trouble raising money.
As Republicans raise funds at a strong pace the Democrats are struggling to do so, The Daily Caller reports.
The report from The Daily Caller cites a Politico report that says Democrats are struggling to raise funds. Making it worse the fund problem is prevalent in hotly contested districts giving Republicans an edge.
Republicans on the other hand are breaking fundraising records all across the country.
According to The Daily Caller:
Heavily contested House districts in Texas, California, Arizona and Pennsylvania have reported that they are not receiving funding from Democratic PACs just three weeks from the midterms, Politico reported. Meanwhile, Republican PACs have ramped up their funding pouring millions of dollars into various races across the country.
The Democratic PACs have stopped supporting their own candidates resulting in campaign impacts quickly diminishing, Politico reported. In one case, retiring Arizona Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick questioned the Democratic PAC’s for refusing to back her replacement Kristen Engle.
National Democratic PACs have stopped airing TV ads in the majority of 14 Republican-held districts, Politico reported. “The number one factor here is money. If we had more money, yeah, I’d feel much better about a bunch of places. But of course, there are other things. It’s not the be-all, end-all,” Tim Persico, executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said, according to the outlet.
On the other side of the spectrum, the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF) has poured more than $31 million into Ohio and $3.67 million in Pennsylvania. Similarly, The Congressional Leadership Fund began October with $114 million and has funded 16 districts after raising $73 million in the third quarter of 2022, Politico reported.
Support for Democrats across the country is floundering as inflation grips the country. Food and gas cost more and families are feeling it.
A recent poll from Rasmussen shows that Republicans are leading Democrats by 7 points across the country.
