In comparison, Ossoff’s opponent, Perdue, raised $68.1 million and ended the filing period with $16 million cash on hand, according to Bloomberg.

Newsweek reached out to Ossoff and Perdue’s campaigns but did not receive a response in time for publication.

In the state’s special election, Warnock raised $103.4 million during the same period, according to Bloomberg, while his opponent, Loeffler, raised $64 million. Warnock spent $86.1 million at the end of the period and had $22.8 million in cash as of Thursday.

Loeffler had $21.3 million in the bank as her campaign enters its final weeks.

Newsweek reached out to Loeffler and Warnock’s campaigns but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Overall, both Democrats combined outraised their opponents by $78.1 million, according to Bloomberg. Each of the candidate’s filings include money raised in the general election and the runoffs.

While the Democratic candidates outraised their opponents, all four candidates surpassed the $57.9 million raised by South Carolina Democrat Senate candidate Jaime Harrison in his race against GOP incumbent Lindsey Graham, which set the record for the most money raised in a quarter for any Senate candidate ever.

The fundraising reports from each of the candidates come less than a month before they face off in the Senate runoff election, scheduled for January 5. The race will decide if Republicans are able to maintain majority control of the Senate.

On the other hand, if both Democrats win, the Senate will be divided with each party holding 50 seats and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will cast tie-breaking votes.

Many recently conducted polls have shown each of the races being tightly contested.

One poll conducted by InsiderAdvatnage/WAGA-TV, found Perdue leading Ossoff by one point (49 to 48 percent), while Warnock led Loeffler by two points (49 to 47 percent).

Another poll from Emerson College found both Republican incumbents leading by three points, as they each received 51 percent of support compared to 48 percent received by both Warnock and Ossoff.
