Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) reportedly plans to transfer $15 million of his own campaign funds to the Democratic Senate fund and to key Democratic candidates. Schumer is reportedly confident about his own re-election bid in New York. This information comes from an anonymous Democrat with knowledge of the senator's plans, reports The New York Times.

According to the insider, Schumer plans to send $1 million each to nine candidates — four incumbent Democratic senators, including Raphael Warnock in Georgia, Mark Kelly in Arizona, Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada and Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, and five Democratic challengers in battleground states, The Washington Post reports.
