Many Californians have a lot of money, and they appear ready to spend it to get either one or both of the Democratic Senate candidates in Georgia elected in the runoff elections in January.
Democratic challenger Democrat Jon Ossoff is challenging incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue, and the Rev. Raphael Warnock is challenging incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler. Ossof raised 80% of his campaign funds for the general election from out of state, and 83% of Warnock’s funds were from elsewhere.
Election watchers expect more than $150 million to be spent on the runoffs.
Senator Loeffler, a successful businesswoman, funded more than 80% of her own campaign, and while Perdue raised about 42% of his campaign funds from out of state. Both will be showered with funds from outside Georgia, although it’s likely that neither will receive very much from California.
