Stacey Abrams raises $22 million in just two months: That’s triple the haul of rival Brian Kemp

Just The News

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams brought in nearly triple the total fundraising haul of her Republican rival over the months of May and June.

The campaign directly raised $9.6 million during those months, an Abrams spokesperson told The Hill, with the One Georgia Leadership Committee raising another $12.3 million on her behalf.

The Abrams campaign touted over 240,000 small donors who contributed $100 or less since December, when the campaign began, according to the outlet. It also has $18.5 million in cash on hand.

Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, by contrast, brought in $3.8 million directly to his campaign in the same May through June period with the Georgians First Leadership Committee PAC raising a further $3 million.

Abrams’ combined total of roughly $22 million, more than triples Kemp’s sub-$7 million figure.

The pair last faced off in the gubernatorial race in 2018 with Kemp ultimately claiming a narrow win.
