Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema was a prodigious fundraiser as a Democrat. As an Independent, she has shattered her previous fundraising PR (personal record), raking in more than $2.1M in the first three months of 2023.
She also received a modest $10,000 in February from the No Labels PAC (the maximum they could give). They filed petition signatures to become a ballot-worthy political party on Arizona's 2024 ballot.
That $2.1M is approximately $500,000 more in total receipts than she collected in her previous record quarter (1Q22). Approximately $252,000 is from PACs, and the rest from individuals.
(To arrive at the PAC figures, we inspected both her primary committee and her joint fundraising committee reports.)
Amazingly, Rep. Ruben Gallego raised $3.8M in the same period, after announcing that he would seek the Sinema-vacated Democratic nomination for next year's election. He now has $2.7M in the bank.
