The Top 10 Red State Democrats in Online Fundraising This July

Whereas voters would normally not get an opportunity to see how online fundraising is doing among these senators, ActBlue’s filings give us a sneak peek on how Q3 fundraising is going for these Democrats.

RAGA’s Zack Roday Gives the Lay of the Land for Attorney General Races Across the Country
The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) might not grab the headlines that the Republican National Committee (RNC) does, but the work that this group is doing is just as critically important.
“Our sole focus is on electing rule-of-law-driven state attorneys general, and our first priority in that effort is re-electing our incumbents,” said Zack Roday, RAGA’s communications director, during an exclusive one-on-one interview with AR Intel. But in a year in which many Republicans are running for AG for the first time, he stressed that electing Republican candidates across the board is critical.
“People should be excited about voting for Republican attorneys general. Our candidates will prioritize the rule of law and safety over political gamesmanship,” he said.
