Statewide and legislative candidates facing primary opposition raised just over $10.3M and spent at least $22.1M during the first 20 days of 2022, according to 30-day-out reports filed yesterday (Monday) and available online today. Collectively, the candidates have $153M on hand. We expect both those totals will rise slightly as additional reports trickle in from the candidates.

All three figures are higher than those for the corresponding period in 2018, when candidates in contested primaries raised $7.5M, spent $15.2M and had $93.7M on hand.
