Washington state donors gave big in Georgia Senate races

Washington state residents opened their wallets in recent months to help Democrats flip two Senate seats in Georgia, contributing at least $7.3 million toward the party’s successful bid to take back the U.S. Senate.

The bulk of those individual donations — about $5.8 million — came in November and December, indicating that most Washington state donors were focused on helping Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock win this week’s runoff elections.
