Our friends at the Center for American Women and Politics have just released new data that breaks down the fundraising gender and racial disparities in a handful of key states. This brand-new analysis of campaign finance data reveals startling gender fundraising gaps so far in the 2024 election cycle, and we wanted to give you real-time findings from the new research and a way to take action. 

Here are the targeted states and 8 candidates you can support now to help close the most glaring gaps in each state. Check out our brand new Women, Money & Politics slate to give $5 or more to each of them:

ARIZONA: Democratic male challengers are vastly outpacing women challengers as self-funders. There are two toss-up general election races where women are serious primary contenders. The primary is August 6: 

  • AZ-1: Journalist Marlene Galan-Woods is the only woman running in the primary to take on Republican Rep. Dave Schweikert. Three men, including former state Rep. Amish Shah, are partially self-funding in this primary.
  • AZ-6: Kirsten Engel is a former state senator who lost to Republican Rep. Juan Ciscomani by 1 point last cycle, and is looking for a rematch. She has no serious primary challenger but Rep. Ciscomani has already received $500,000 from outside PACS.

FLORIDA: Democratic men and White Democratic women are outraising Latina challengers, even though one of the toughest flips is against Republican Rep. María Elvira Salazar. The primary is August 20: 

  • FL-27: Miami-Dade school board member Lucia Báez-Geller has been endorsed in the primary by former Reps. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell and Donna Shalala, but needs to catch up in fundraising to compete in this Likely R seat.

MICHIGAN: Democratic men are outraising Democratic women—massively when it comes to Black women. This primary is August 6: 

  • MI-8: State Board of Education member Pamela Pugh needs support to be competitive in the primary for this toss-up general election to fill the vacancy left by Rep. Dan Kildee. The primary frontrunner is state Sen. Kristen McDonald Rivet but three men are also running—and we want this race to be between two women.
  • MI-10: Activist Emily Busch has been endorsed by every major national gun safety group, but lags men in fundraising for this primary to take on Republican Rep. John James in this Lean R seat.

OHIO: Incumbent Democratic men are outraising incumbent Democratic women, including raising double that of incumbent Black women.

  • OH-13: That’s despite the fact incumbent Democratic Rep. Emilia Sykes (OH-13) is in a toss-up race to keep her seat. This seat is a must-hold for Democrats if we want to take back the House. 

PENNSYLVANIA: Incumbent Democratic men are raising slightly more than female incumbents in the Keystone State. 

  • PA-7: Even though Democratic Rep. Susan Wild is also in a toss-up race to keep her seat. 

WASHINGTON: Women are leading the primary in the state’s most competitive open seat. The bad news? Women of color are raising less. The primary is August 6:

  • WA-6: Latina state Sen. Emily Randall—who was just endorsed by Sen. Patty Murray—has raised only two-thirds of what former Commissioner of Public Lands, Hilary Franz, has raised.
