DAGA Raised Over $3.8 Million in First Quarter of 2022
April 15, 2022
Q1 2022 Fundraising is 30% Higher than the Same Time in 2018 Midterms
Washington, DC — Today the Democratic Attorneys General Association announced it raised over $3.8 million across all entities in the first quarter of 2022, a 30% increase over its fundraising at the same point in the landmark 2018 cycle when it flipped four swing state Attorney General offices.
DAGA is investing in key incumbent races in Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin, and others around the country. DAGA is strongly backing Georgia state Senator Jen Jordan to become Georgia’s next Attorney General – whether she is facing incumbent Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr or John Gordon, who received Donald Trump’s endorsement a few weeks ago.
Statement from Sean Rankin, President of DAGA, and Farah Melendez, Senior Advisor for Campaigns:
“DAGA is raising the resources we need to compete and win across the country in 2022. We are strongly backing our incumbents, especially those who flipped swing states in 2018, and we are all-in on flipping Georgia this year. Chris Carr is a badly damaged incumbent in danger of losing his own primary thanks to Donald Trump, and even if he survives, he is in terrible shape with Georgia voters for the rest of the year. We’re contesting seats around the country including battlegrounds like Arizona and Kansas, and we’re confident we’re raising the resources we need to win in red, blue, and purple states.”
