First on CNN: EMILY’s List makes record off-year haul.

EMILY’s List, the influential Democratic political committee that backs pro-choice women for public office, raised $10.5 million in the first six months of 2015, according to fundraising figures shared first with CNN. That is the most that the group has ever raised over the same period in previous off-year cycles, and indicative of the growing interest among donors in electing female candidates. The $10.5 million figure includes money raised by all of EMILY’s List entities — its federal and non-federal political action committees and its super PAC — as well as cash bundled directly for candidates. EMILY’s List has endorsed several Senate candidates for the 2016 cycle, including California attorney general Kamala Harris, who is running to replace retiring Sen.

This week’s campaign finance filing deadline offered a first official glimpse into how much each of the 2016 presidential candidates are putting in their respective war chests. On the Republican side, former Florida Jeb Bush has by far posted the most impressive figures, raising more than $114 million between his campaign and allied super PAC.
