By comparison, Rick Lazio, who had the previous record for three-month fundraising when challenging Hillary Clinton in 2000, pulled in only $22 million.

Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke raised more money than any Senate candidate ever this quarter, but may still lose against Ted Cruz

Rep. Beto O'Rourke, the Texas Democrat challenging Sen. Ted Cruz, raised more money in the third quarter of this year than any Senate candidate ever has.

Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke raised a record $38.1 million in the third quarter for his underdog campaign to defeat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas. O'Rourke's massive haul easily surpassed the previous single-quarter record, set by Republican Rick Lazio in 2000 , when he raised about $22 million in one quarter for his losing New York Senate bid against Hillary Clinton, who was then the first lady. Cruz previously told reporters that he raised $12 million in the final quarter before the election - one of the best fundraising performances of 2018. But O'Rourke's fundraising, fueled by...
