Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) plowed through the $10 Million mark in campaign receipts for her U.S. Senate race, according to her most recent FEC filing. The benchmark was likely reached sometime in mid-July, and the Democratic frontrunner now has $2.5M cash in the bank, despite having spent more on television ads than any of her opponents.
Sinema raised approximately $200,000/week during the “pre-primary” period of July 1 through August 8. Her primary opponent, attorney Deedra Abboud, has been running a shoestring campaign.
On the Republican side, frontrunner Rep. Martha McSally (R-CD2) is locked in a tight battle with Kelli Ward and Joe Arpaio. None of the GOP candidates’ pre-primary filings are yet available – they were filed with the U.S. Senate, and it takes time for them to be posted on the FEC site. However, as of June 30, McSally had had $4.2M cash on hand.
