Sen. Senator Kyrsten Silene and Sen. Joe Manchin were recently able to raise large amounts of money while rejecting key elements of the far-left agenda. Sinema had her fourth quarter of highest fundraising results since she was elected in 2021. Politico reported that Sinema raised almost $1.6million in the three months to 2021.
Her opposition to President Joe Biden’s far-left agenda is responsible for the decline in small-dollar donations. She has publicly rejected a portion of their agenda, including reconciliation to policy changes.
Manchin also set a fourth-quarter fundraising record. He raised $1.5 million, which was nearly $1.4 million more than any senator has ever raised.
Manchin’s reelection campaign raised over $280,000 from corporate donors, other influential donors. After Manchin stated that he wouldn’t support Build Back Better, he saw a spike in donations.
Manchin has been a swing vote on important bills. Like the Arizona senator, he opposes the removal of filibuster rules.
Sinema, Manchin and others are not up for reelection in 2024.
