Billions of dollars are being spent on the midterm elections in 2022 — more than $9.3 billion — up from $7.1 billion spent four years ago.
Money is being spent on TV, radio, and digital ads for the U.S. House, Senate, gubernatorial, and local races. Political parties, candidates, political action committees, and outside spenders have already poured $4.8 billion into the races. Another $4.5 billion will be spent in the last six weeks leading up to Election Day.
Senate candidates’ spending is double that of 2018, while House spending is up by 30 percent. Democrats have more cash on hand: $1.3 billion combined, compared to $1.1 billion for Republican candidates.
