Expenditure of the state superintendent of the primary

This year’s first supervisor is the most expensive in the last two decades.

And it’s not even close.

Much of this can rightly be described as the Debbie Critchfield effect. The former president of the State Board of Education raised nearly $ 320,000 ahead of the primaries on Tuesday. This is at least a increase sixfold from the largest fundraiser we saw at the primaries of the head of state (in 2014, when Democrat Jan Jones ran without resistance and was preparing for the general election).

Of course, we do not have the final figures for this year’s primaries – so the figure for the fundraising of Critchfield will only increase.

The rest of the fundraising history also deserves more consideration.

  • Branden Durst, a former Democratic MP who led a tough conservative campaign, raised nearly $ 68,000. This is much more than the candidate for the superintendent – Republican or Democrat – gathered on the eve of the previous five primaries.
  • Gray Ibarra, who holds two terms, with a history of campaigning on a small budget, has increased her fundraising game. She raised more than $ 34,000 before the primaries, which is more in line with her successful (though underfunded) victories in the 2014 and 2018 general elections.

As Ybarra showed, victory in the fundraising race does not automatically equate to winning an election.

By numbers

That’s how much money state candidates have raised and spent over the past two decades on primary elections. (Nominees from the party in bold.)
