 Senate Majority PAC and Majority Forward Post Record Fundraising Numbers in 2017

Senate Majority PAC Outraised Senate Leadership Fund By $8 Million

Washington, D.C. (January 30, 2018) Today, Senate Majority PAC and Majority Forward announced that together the groups raised $31.8 million in 2017, a record for the groups in an off-election year. This nearly triples the $11.2 million the groups raised in 2015. Senate Majority PAC raised $21.7 million in 2017 and has $13.6 million cash on hand to begin the new year while Majority Forward raised $10.1 million and has $5.9 million cash on hand.

“Senate Democrats are well-positioned for electoral success in 2018 as we run against an unpopular Republican Congress that sold out the middle class to give their corporate special interest donors a massive tax cut,” said J.B. Poersch, President of Senate Majority PAC and Majority Forward. “As the election of Senator Doug Jones in Alabama showed, Democrats across the country are enthusiastic to get back to the polls and hold President Trump and Leader McConnell accountable.”

During the same time period that Senate Majority PAC and Majority Forward raised $31.8 million, Republican groups targeting the Senate, including Senate Leadership Fund ($13.7 million), One Nation ($16.7 million), American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS raised $31.6 million.
