Georgia Republicans may roll their eyes when their Democratic counterparts claim Georgia may turn blue this November. But there’s one big area where the two rival parties have reached parity: money.
Democrats have raised $2 million for this campaign cycle, a figure boosted by some big checks from out-of-state donors keen to fund the party’s grass-roots machinery. And the Georgia GOP, while maintaining a slight cash advantage thanks to an uptick in donations, is still mired in debt and grappling with legal issues. The party’s ledgers remain a fraction of what they were just a few election cycles ago.
