Hows the 2022 GOP House & Senate Fundraising going?

Anyone have resources to follow GOP political fundraising for the 2022 fundraising for each state?

The FEC (Federal Elections Commission) website is the official open records resource. And a very good one.
All official fundraising efforts are here:

Now that Biden has seated a new Commissioner and Dems have chosen the new FEC Chair is fully staffed and has a new chair.

It can officially call a meeting, restart the normal oversight processes and start new investigations. Trump stopped the FEC on his 'day one' back in 2017. The FEC could not do anything since 2017, and there has been many elections and campaigns since then.
GOP fundraising has always been a bit shady.

Is there any campaign finance group(s) that is tracking each state's fundraising efforts by the GOP? ...GOP supporting PACs/527's/etc?

I think that following the money has always been one of the best ways to find and expose those candidates that intend to cheat, to game the system and bypass the honest and legal methods of campaign finance. Finding them and targeting every GOP House, Senate, Statewide and Local candidate for 2022 will show the 'conservatives' are up to no good and following Trump's lead will use illegal and shady finance practices because if Trump can get away with it, so can they.

1. They are also sitting on the "Election Fraud" war chest of probably 100 million or so. nt

2. those funds may not be for campaigns

there are very strict rules for funding candidates & candidate campaigns vs. issue fundraising campaigns.

There is not a method to 'slush fund' those donations. They are separate entities.

I'm looking for specific donor & recipient lists for each state, other than those state election boards/commissions that are the official reporting methods. More of the 527, Citizen's United groups, like Wisconsin's WMC (Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce non-profit).
The 'side' funding groups who run issue ads on TV and may have spent more than the actual official candidate and political parties.

3. AND Trump is SO good at following the rules set up for "OTHER" PEOPLE?

tRump violated the emollient clause over and over.

tRump diverted the military to his OWN properties to make money off his power position.

tRump doesn't seem to have a problem using slush funds.

BUT your thread is particular to what they are doing legally.

I get it.
