In what has already been a record campaign for financial contributions, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney is still rolling in the dough.  She raised more than $2 million for her campaign in July. 

The overwhelming majority of these donations came from individual donors, a large portion from California

According to Federal Election Commission filing data submitted Thursday afternoon, Californians raised $190,709 of the $2.04 million in individual contributions made to the Cheney campaign in July. 

The July income brings her campaign to $15.1 million in overall revenue. She now has $7.4 million cash on hand. 

Political committees also gave her $26,400 in July.  

These revenue totals push Cheney into sixth place among all U.S. House candidates for money raised.  

Cheney spent around $1.5 million in July. 

Her opponent Harriet Hageman has raised $3.8 million in the campaign, but that total is only current through the end of June. Hageman has $1.4 million cash in hand. 

Americans Keeping Country First super Political Action Committee has joined the race, spending $331,158 on behalf of Cheney. The PAC was formed by allies of Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., and is dedicated to supporting members of Congress who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. This is the third largest expenditure made by any PAC in the race.
