The top Senate Republican super PAC and its affiliated nonprofit raised nearly $25 million in the first six months of 2021 and are entering the second half of the year with more than $33.6 million in combined cash on hand.
Senate Leadership Fund, the super PAC aligned with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), pulled in more than $4.4 million in the first half of the year, fundraising numbers shared with The Hill show.
That’s less than the nearly $5.5 million it raised in the first six months of 2019 and nearly $4 million less than the $8.26 million it raised in the first half of 2017, though the group attributed the drop-off to two Senate runoff elections in Georgia that ran into January of this year.
Meanwhile, One Nation, the political nonprofit affiliated with SLF, saw a massive surge in fundraising, pulling in more than $20.4 million in the first half of 2021 and ending June with more than $27 million in the bank.
