Priorities USA, a leading Democratic outside group, raised $14.6 million during the first quarter of 2022, nearly triple during the same period four years ago.
The haul — details of which were first shared with POLITICO — includes fundraising for three groups in the Priorities USA network: a super PAC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group and a 501(c)(4) nonprofit group. The news of the cash influx comes not long after the group announced plans to drop $30 million on digital ad campaigns in battleground states as the midterms approach.
Democrats are facing an uphill battle defending both the House and Senate majorities in the midterms. Republican wins in 2021 elections foreshadowed a tough battle ahead for President Joe Biden’s party.
