Several More Facts & Figs
  • The most expensive race of the cycle was North Carolina where, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a total of $287.7 million was spent ($67.0 million by the campaigns and $220.6 million in outside spending), setting a new record for the most expensive Senate race.  All told at least ten races came in at over $100 milllion.  The other $100 million-plus races were Iowa  $241.2 million, South Carolina $214.1 million, Arizona $211.2 million, Maine $186.1 million, Montana $174.8 million, Georgia $172.3 million, Michigan $166.6 million, Kentucky $149.6 million and Colorado $104.3 million. >  Outside spending exceeded spending by the campaigns in six of these ten races.
  • Looking at just the campaign committees, the Center for Responsive Politics reported on Nov. 4, "Democratic Senate candidates running in general elections raised a stunning $809 million this cycle, dwarfing Republicans’ $494 million. In hindsight, it’s not clear that money was smartly spent, as about one-fourth went to Harrison [nearly $108 million] and McGrath [$88 million] alone." >  Those figures do not include the two Georgia runoffs.  The Center also reported that, "Democratic Senate candidates got 41 percent of their money from small donors compared to Republicans’ 28 percent."  Further, Democratic Senate candidates raised 80.3% percent of their money from out-of-state donors compared to 66.7% for Republicans. >

  • Of the 69 major party nominees, 21 were women: 12D (2 incumbents, 3 open seat and  7 challengers) and 9R (6 incumbents, 1 open seat and 2 challengers).  One incumbent woman was defeated (McSally) and one women won an open seat (Lummis).  None of the nine women challengers won.  In four races, both major party nominees were women (IA, ME, WV, WY).  See CAWP. >
