Report: Five of Six SupComm Senators See Major Drops in Fundraising

November 7, 2011
Five of the six senators on the Super Committee raised less money in the third quarter of this year than in the second, with four seeing decreases of more than 60 percent, according to a report from the Sunlight Foundation.

Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) raised 71 percent less this quarter; John Kerry (D-Mass.) raised 82 percent less; Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) raised 64 percent less; Patty Murray (D-Wash.) raised 85 percent less; and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) raised 32 percent less. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) had a slight increase in fundraising, Sunlight reported.

There have been calls for Super Committee members to shun fundraising as they debate how to cut over $1 trillion from the federal budget to ensure neutrality.

Two of the House members on the Super Committee reported increased fundraising in the third quarter over the last quarter, the Sunlight Foundation reported last month.
