Democratic fundraising giant ActBlue says it raised more than $305 million in the third quarter, more than tripling its totals over the same period in 2017, the most recent comparable election cycle, according to documents first obtained by The Daily Beast.

The amount brings the platform’s haul this year to more than $668 million, outshining the $401 million reported by Republican fundraising rival WinRed as the two parties armor up for a contentious midterm fight.

The internal data shared with The Daily Beast shows the Democratic money machine marked dramatic increases across the board.
