ICYMI: Republican attorneys general dominating Democrats in fundraising battle

"It's clear that during the Obama years many of his top priorities were defeated mainly, if not entirely, through the work of the Republican AGs. And there's still a lot more work to be done." - Scott Will, RAGA Executive Director 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Heading into the pivotal 2018 election cycle, the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) raised a record $7.4 million to close out the first half of 2017, over double the amount raised by the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) in the same period of time. 

Washington Examiner reports

"Republican attorneys general are trouncing their Democratic counterparts in 2017's fundraising wars amid liberals' failure to capitalize on resistance to President Trump.

"The Republican Attorneys General Association raised $7.4 million through the first half of 2017, which the group said is a record-high number for the organization that formed in 1999. During the same period in 2015 and 2013, the association raked in $5.1 million and $4.2 million, respectively, as it headed into major election cycles.

"The Democratic Attorneys General Association, meanwhile, raised about $3.1 million between January and June and reportedly hired full-time finance staffing for the first time in 2017."
