Top House Dem super PAC raised $51M in past three months

House Majority PAC, the super PAC affiliated with the chamber’s Democratic leadership, and House Majority Forward, an associated nonprofit group, raised a combined $51 million in the second quarter of 2024.

That total is more than double what the groups raised in the second quarter of 2022, the last election year. It also surpasses the $37 million that the groups raised in the first three months of this year.

House Majority PAC is Democrats’ largest outside group focused on House races, and it has close ties to House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. It will spend tens of millions of dollars to wrest back control of the House from the GOP. It raised $76 million in 2023, and $45.9 million through May 31 of this year.

“After our strongest fundraising off-year ever, HMP continues to smash our previous fundraising records,” said Mike Smith, House Majority PAC’s president. “It’s more clear than ever that House Democrats have the momentum — and we will take back the House in November and elect Speaker Hakeem Jeffries.”

The super PAC’s latest campaign finance report, which covers its activity in June, is due to the Federal Election Commission on July 20. As a nonprofit, House Majority Forward does not file reports with the FEC but contributed more than $8 million to House Majority PAC in 2023.
