Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) reported raising $7.6 million from April through June, a record for money raised in the second quarter for a U.S. Senate race in Nevada.

The haul broke the record set by Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), who raised more than $7.5 million in the second quarter of 2022, a reporting period that saw a surge in donations due to the fall of Roe v. Wade. 

Rosen raised $5 million in the first quarter, much more than the $2.2 million raised by Sam Brown, Rosen’s Republican opponent in the November general election who was running in a GOP primary at the time. Brown has not revealed his fundraising total for the second quarter.

As of late May, Rosen had more than $10 million in cash on hand, while Brown had around $2.5 million on hand.

Polls show Rosen with a sizable lead over Brown, while President Joe Biden is trailing former President Donald Trump. Rosen is one of several Democratic senators said to be at risk of losing their seats this year, an outcome that could prove dire for Democrats given their narrow majority (51 out of 100 seats) in the chamber. A Senate majority is necessary to confirm Supreme Court and cabinet nominees, among other key responsibilities.

Rosen’s campaign said that more than 33,000 donors in the second quarter were first-time contributors, including donors from all 17 Nevada counties. The average online donation was $37, and 96 percent of the donations were $100 or less, according to the campaign.

The second quarter haul brings Rosen’s total money raised since entering office in 2019 to more than $30 million. Specific details on Rosen’s donor base and spending will be released Monday, which is the deadline for federal campaigns to release their quarterly finance reports. 

Rosen has launched a multimillion dollar ad campaign focused on abortion access.
