Sen. Raphael Warnock Gets 73% More Campaign Contributions From California Donors Than Georgia

The Georgia senator also leads the pack in donations from the entertainment industry, with nearly $1 million raised this cycle

U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock has raised more than $8.72 million from donors in California for his re-election bid — 73% more than the $5.03 million he’s collected from his home state of Georgia, according to Federal Elections Commission records.

Warnock, whose campaign against Republican former football star Hershel Walker is seen as crucial to Democrats’ attempt to maintain control of the Senate, has amassed a $112 million war chest thanks largely to out-of-state contributions. (New Yorkers have contributed $4.69 million to his campaign so far.)
