The Politico notes the fundraising success of the Republican Governors Association:

While Republican fundraising has been lagging in most quarters, the Republican Governors Association is on track to raise a record-breaking $30 million by November, significantly besting its Democratic rival.

...

The organization Tuesday reported having nearly $21 million in cash, compared to the Democratic Governors Association's $13 million.

Interestingly, Nick Ayers, the RGA's executive director, specifically mentions Delaware (an open seat) as a state where some of that money will go. The G.O.P.'s chances in Delaware have looked pretty bleak, in part because the Democratic candidates have more money to spend. If the RGA steps in, that could level the playing field.
