2020 Daily Trail Markers: Senate Democratic hopefuls are raising serious cash. They're also spending it.
Democratic Senate hopeful Jaime Harrison of South Carolina raised $57 million between July and September. Sara Gideon in Maine raised more than $39 million in that same period. And Mark Kelly in Arizona brought in $38.7 million. These eye-popping numbers shattered the previous record for fundraising, Beto O'Rourke's $38 million cash haul in the third quarter of 2018. Now the Democrats are spending that money in the face of massive Republican super PAC funds, report CBS News political unit associate producers Sarah Ewall-Wice and Eleanor Watson. And it's left many Republican candidates with more cash on hand than the Democrats in the final weeks of the race. In South Carolina, where the Senate race is unexpectedly tight, Harrison's $57 million in three months was more than double what Republican incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham raised with $28 million, a state record for a Republican. Records show from July through September, Harrison spent more than $55 million. According to his October FEC filing, Harrison paid AL Media LLC more than $42 million over three months for TV, radio and digital advertising. He also spent another $6.5 million for digital advertising and services to Mothership Strategies, and $2 million to Blueprint Strategy LLC for radio and billboard advertising. $641,000 went to 'direct mailing services.' That amounts to more than $51 million spent on ads and direct mail alone. But after being outraised roughly 2 to 1, Graham's operating expenses covered about half of what he raised, $26.5 million and another $1.75 million was transferred to the state Republican party. In their pre-general election filings, Harrison raised another $22 million in just 14 days from October 1 through 14, but ended the period with just $3.5 million cash on hand. Graham raised less than half of that but had $7.3 million as of October 14.Read Full Story Democratic SenateBeto O'RourkeSouth CarolinaCBS NewsMaineIndianaRepublicansGOP VotersThe SenateCongressPAC ATTACK Pro-BidenRNCDFL -RRB- PartyMothership StrategiesTexas Supreme CourtJaime HarrisonBeto O'rourkeDonald TrumpJoe BidenMark KellyLindsey GrahamMitch McconnellDebra ToddKendra HornJocelyn BensonGina Ortiz JonesBill StepienSara GideonBernie SandersAdamKathy BoockvarJim HagedornTina SmithDan FeehanMike PenceStephanie BiceGreg AbbottKaren PenceWill HurdAmy Klobuchar

Phelps’ option was for $4.5 million and included a $250,000 buyout.Robertson was signed to a $23 million, two-year deal prior to the 2019 season but pitched in just seven games due to Tommy John surgery. His contract included a $12 million option for 2021 with a $2 million buyout.Hembree was also acquired midseason and had a 12.54 ERA. Morgan dealt with shoulder issues and had a 5.54 ERA. The 35-year-old Parker was one of the few bright spots in the bullpen with a 2.81 ERA in 14 games.Pitching coach Bryan Price retired after the season, and his replacement has not been named.Quezada, 26, made his major league debut with Miami last season but hadn’t pitched above Class A prior to that.
