Newly released Federal Election Commission data reveal that nearly 60 percent of the money donated by organizations to outside spending groups for the 2018 midterms has gone to liberals.

And the top donors are even more heavily tilted toward the left.

How much money are we talking about?

Organization donations to outside spending groups total $151 million for the 2018 election cycle to date, according to the most recent data published by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Of that, $90.2 million — 59.8 percent — has gone to liberals.

And when it comes to the organizations that donate the most, the left has an even greater advantage.

The top 25 organizations and their donations

Based on the new FEC data, two-thirds (67 percent) of the total funds given by the 25 organizations that have donated the most has gone to liberals.

Those 25 organizations have so far donated $109 million for this year's midterms, with $72.8 million going to left-wing groups.
