The first quarterly fundraising deadline of this year is today, and the women on our 2022 Senate slateneed your help now to close big gaps:
For every dollar given to an incumbent man’s campaign in a competitive race, only 57 cents goes to women in similarly competitive races.
Two incumbents facing the toughest races, Sen. Maggie Hassan ($14.7 million) and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto ($15.3 million), are being vastly outraised in individual donations by Sen. Mark Kelly and Sen. Raphael Warnock, who have raised $25 million each. These numbers reflect totals raised in calendar year 2021.
And Senate candidate Sarah Godlewski ($1.2 million), is facing a gap in her primary race against Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes and Alex Lasry, who have each raised more than $2.5 million in individual contributions.
Men also give more money per donation than women—$36 more, in fact. Donors to female candidates are disproportionately women, which further widens these gaps.
