The Georgia runoff elections for U.S. Senate are coming up in just a couple of weeks and the whole country is watching because it could potentially change not only the party in power but the country.
The two Democrats who are running are being showered in cash. The media keeps reporting this but rarely tells you where the money is coming from.
A lot of it is coming from out of state. Specifically, California.
The LA Times reports:
Record cash pours into Georgia Senate races, with a large chunk from California
With early voting well underway and both sides expecting extremely close races, record amounts of money continue to pour into Georgia’s twin Senate runoff campaigns, including a large chunk of cash from donors in California, new Federal Election Commission filings show.
The two Democratic candidates, Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock, shattered all-time fundraising records over the last two months. Their Republican opponents, Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, respectively, hold a financial edge, however, thanks to outside Republican groups that can raise massive sums mostly unconstrained by federal campaign laws.
Much of that outside money comes from donors whose identities remain undisclosed.
Warnock brought in just over $103 million in the two months from mid-October to mid-December, according to his filing. Ossoff raised even more — almost $107 million. Perdue raised $68 million and Loeffler, $64 million.
