Slotkin campaign in Michigan’s U.S. Senate election has outraised Democratic rivals

Elissa Slotkin, a Democrat, has emerged as the frontrunner in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Michigan. Notably, Slotkin has successfully raised an impressive $11.68 million since the beginning of the campaign cycle. Her fundraising efforts have positioned her as a formidable candidate in the race.

Slotkin amassed a substantial $2.83 million in fundraising during the fourth quarter of 2023. Following closely behind is Hill Harper, who has raised a commendable $1.32 million since the beginning of the campaign, with an additional $303,185 in quarter four. Notably, Nasser Beydoun garnered an impressive $457,424 in the fourth quarter, surpassing Harper but falling short of Slotkin’s remarkable achievement.

The primary is scheduled for Aug. 6. As of Dec. 31, a total of six candidates, including those who have withdrawn from the race, have raised an impressive $13.74 million. When compared to the average fundraising amount of $3.41 million in all 125 congressional battlegrounds we are monitoring, these candidates have surpassed expectations.

In 2020, the four candidates vying for the U.S. Senate in Michigan raised an impressive total of $101.25 million. This amount far exceeded the $35.99 million raised by ten candidates during the previous election cycle in 2018. The substantial increase in campaign funds highlights the growing importance and competitiveness of the Senate race in Michigan.
