Abrams has yet to report her latest figures, but she has also made the most of the new leadership committee system. She collected more than $36 million in the three-month span between July and September. That’s nearly $9 million more than the Democrat raised during her entire 2018 campaign against Kemp.
This week, her campaign surprised many political observers by pulling back her advertising spending from more than $2.6 million a week to less than half that. Both campaigns have invested tremendous resources into a grassroots apparatus that’s helped set midterm turnout records during this stage of the early voting period.
While Abrams has outpaced Kemp’s fundraising machine, the Republican has held his own. He collected nearly $29 million between July and September, amassing more campaign cash over a three-month span than he raised during his entire 2018 campaign. In all, he’s raised nearly $69 million for his reelection bid.
