He’s expanded the sprawling donor list he built during the 2021 special election campaign, which ended with his defeat of incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler. Now he’s seeking a full six-year term and is regarded as one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents given Georgia’s close political divide.
Warnock’s cash haul puts him far ahead of Walker, who entered the race in August with the blessing of former President Donald Trump and a surge of donations from Republicans who had previously stayed on the sidelines.
Walker’s best-known GOP competitor, Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, raised just $440,000 over the three-month span to end with about $920,000 in the bank. Two other GOP candidates have yet to report: Latham Saddler, a former Navy SEAL and onetime Trump administration official; and military veteran Kelvin King.
