Who’s leading the midterm fund raising battle?

October 19, 2018 -- Democratic candidates are outpacing their Republican opponents’ fundraising levels in the most contested 69 seats up for grabs in the House of Representatives, according to the Federal Election Commission.

Democratic candidates are raising more funds from donations than their Republican opponents in a majority of the 69 most competitive House of Representatives races. Some of the biggest earners include two Democratic women – Mikie Sherrill in New Jersey and Amy McGrath in Kentucky.

Many Democratic candidates have raised large sums from multiple small online donations, which they are banking on as a means to make a difference in tight races.

Facing a slew of tough races, Republican leaders have begun pulling money away from some struggling incumbents, particularly those in suburbs where President Trump is unpopular.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
