Most Democrats in 2016 Trump districts outraising GOP challengers

Incumbent House Democrats in Trump districts raised a total of more than $14.3 million in direct contributions in the third quarter, which just ended in September, compared to the $6.08 million raised by their Republican challengers.

Over in New Jersey, Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill won the Eleventh District by almost 15 points after Trump won it in 2016 by just one point. She raised nearly $669,000 in the third quarter. While two challengers have jumped in the race, they raised just $650 combined by the end of the quarter.

In all, Democrats in Trump-won districts that have voiced support for the impeachment inquiry have together raised a combined total of around $11 million in direct contributions to their campaigns.
