Top GOP Senate candidates gather for series of fundraisers


It comes amid broader concerns among Republicans about the party’s weak fundraising. The list of candidates participating in Florida’s swing includes Adam Laxalt of Nevada, JD Vance of Ohio and Mehmet Oz of Pennsylvania, all of whom were significantly outmatched by their Democratic rivals. Also in attendance will be Senator Marco Rubio, a senator from the home state of Florida who was outraged by his Democratic opponent, Rep. Val Demings.

The Florida flyby has been in the works for several months, according to a person familiar with the matter. The other expected candidates are Iowa Sen. Chuck GrassleyNorth Carolina Ted BudJoe O’Dea of ​​Colorado and Tiffany Smiley of Washington State.

In total, the slate of candidates represents a handful of “carried” states as well as the core battleground states up for grabs in the midterm elections, as Republicans race to flip the Senate 50-50 under their control.

Scott has recently faced criticism and questions about why the NRSC has a fraction of the amount of money available for the fall campaign that his Democratic counterpart has. Scott, who organized the trio of events in Florida, brushed off criticism, saying the committee made early investments that would help the party financially in the long run.
