The Top 10 Red State Democrats in Online Fundraising This July
Every dollar counts in a political campaign, and that’s never truer than in the final months of a campaign. Red state Democrats are doing everything they can to raise money to preserve their seats in Congress, and FEC data filed by ActBlue, the Democrats’ online fundraising platform, shows us exactly how much they raised in the month of 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.

SBA List’s Mallory Quigley: Trump is the Most Pro-Life President We’ve Ever Seen
With Republican majorities in the House and Senate, and a Republican president in the White House, you might think the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List, a pro-life non-profit based in Washington, D.C., is comfortable with the gains they’ve made in the past few elections. The truth is, with a pro-life president in office, they’re working to get as much done as they possibly can.
That’s according to Mallory Quigley, the group’s VP of Communications, who said SBA List is working tirelessly to get Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court and helping to elect more pro-life legislators both in D.C. and in the states.
To find out what Quigley and her team at SBA List are doing for the SCOTUS fight, the 2018 midterms, and beyond, sign up for a 7-day free trial of AR Intel!
Senate Democrats’ Q2 Fundraising Numbers
Red state Democrats will need all the help they can get in the final months leading up to the midterm elections this November. AR Intel has been consistently tracking the fundraising totals of Senate Democrats running in states won by President Trump in the 2016 election.
Many of these incumbents are running for their third or fourth term, but few have faced an environment as challenging as this one. Trump won several of the states that these Democrats represent by larger than 20-point margins.
So, how well did Democrats do in the second quarter of 2018? To find out and get exclusive access to AR Intel’s Q2 fundraising infographic, sign up today!
Axios: Brutal poll: Democrats’ Senate dream slips away
To win the Senate, Democrats need to keep all 10 seats they’re defending in states that President Trump won in 2016 — plus pick up two more seats.
Why it matters: That’s not happening. A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll of key states shows Dems would lose three of those red-state seats while picking up two GOP seats — still short of the majority.

SCOTUS Nomination (So Far): By The Numbers
President Trump will announce his nomination to the Supreme Court to the nation Monday evening. While this will put to rest the rampant speculation about who he will ultimately select, it will set off a furious campaign by outside groups to sway so-called red state Democrats to either support or oppose the nominee. The same could be true of two Republican senators, as well.

NRSC’s Sarah Morgan: Every Democrat Should Be Worried
AR Intel had the opportunity to sit down with Sarah Morgan, the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s (NRSC) political director late last week for a wide-ranging discussion about key Senate races across the country and the committee’s role in helping Republican candidates win in November.
With just six months to go until Election Day, the NRSC feels confident and prepared for the dozen or so closely watched Senate races taking place this cycle. Ten Democrats are up for reelection in states won by President Trump in 2016, and that’s a big difference from the 2016 cycle, Morgan’s first at the committee.
