U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, who is not on the ballot again for another five years, reported raising $158,829 for his 2024 re-election campaign.
The three-term Democratic senator has raised $226,430 so far this year, and has $255,463 cash-on-hand, according to reports he filed with the Federal Election Commission.
Menendez was re-elected in 2018 by a 54%-43% margin against Republican Bob Hugin despite being outspent by a more than 3-1 margin.
Hugin raised $39,138,199, the vast majority of which — $36 million — came from his own pocket. Hugin spent $37,800,226 during the campaign. Menendez reported raising $12,468,212 and spending $14,081,956 over the course of the election.
Those spending figures do not include independent expenditures made for or against either candidate, and do not include spending made by candidates’ political action committees.
