With Republicans working overtime to convince voters that a rise in inflation and gas prices are the faults of Democrats in office, it’s been difficult to convince them that saving American democracy is worth their time, or that the choice does not have to be binary, or that Republicans are just counting on them not knowing how the economy works. Midterm fundraising by the DNC, however, may show that the RNC message isn’t working as well as they’d hoped.
DNC brought in $16.1M in May

As the January 6 hearings continue and the country learns just how close we were to a totalitarian dictatorship, midterm fundraising reports by the DNC are hopeful. With just four months to go until the 2022 midterm elections, the DNC raked in more than it has in May in a midterm year than it has in all its history.
According to POLITICO:
‘The DNC has raked in more than $66 million, the biggest midterm year haul for this point in the cycle, a committee spokesperson ahead of the monthly filing deadline. The DNC continues to tout its grassroots fundraising totals, a continued bright spot for the party that’s facing a brutal midterm environment. The DNC had its best online fundraising month, exceeding the next closest mark by nearly $2 million. The best performing fundraising emails were signed by President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Second Lady Jill Biden and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff.’
Democratic voters were happy to hear the news, but also warned the DNC not to waste the resources they’ve brought in; mostly, they want leaders to focus on exactly the area where Republicans are most winning against them: messaging. Read some of their comments below:
