DAGA Announces Strong Q1 Fundraising Numbers: $6 Million in High-Stakes Election Year

April 17, 2024

DAGA’s Fundraising Marked by Democratic AG National Leadership on Key Issues

Washington, DC — Today, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) announced it raised $6 million across all entities in 2024’s first quarter, a total that will help successfully defend Democratic AGs around the country and win key battleground races this fall.

This November, there are 12 Attorney General seats on the political map including the two critical seats also on the presidential battleground map: North Carolina and Pennsylvania. These seats are essential to protecting reproductive freedom and our country’s democracy, given their role in the Electoral College. DAGA will be paying close attention to other states on the map, including Montana and Indiana — two states that are shaping up to be wild card races as the sitting Republican AGs in both states are embedded in countless scandals and ethics charges.

Statement from Sean Rankin, President, Democratic Attorneys General Association:

“This was a strong first quarter for us, and I’m proud of the work we’re doing to meet our fundraising goals in a critical election year. The increased levels of support for DAGA and Democratic AGs demonstrate that donors at every level understand the need to elect Democrats to the office of state Attorney General. Democratic AGs continue to be national leaders on many critical issues – from fighting for abortion access, to protecting the environment, and keeping families and communities safe.

“This year, democracy is on the line. And Democratic Attorneys General are the last line of defense against attacks on our democratic processes. We must keep North Carolina and Pennsylvania in Democratic hands this year, and elect more Democratic AGs across the country who will defend the rights of every American. I want to thank everyone — our staff, donors, partners, and our Democratic AGs for helping to grow our room. With your support, DAGA is on track to see continued success in both fundraising and elections for cycles to come.”

The organization’s Q1 success builds on the accomplishments the organization has seen in recent years since breaking records and outraising the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) in 2022. That year, DAGA successfully defended its Democratic-held seats in battleground states like Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, and Wisconsin, and AG Kris Mayes won in the key battleground state of Arizona — one of the closest statewide elections in the state’s modern history. DAGA has won 16 out of 29 competitive races against RAGA dating back to 2016.
