Not the news that Democrats were hoping to hear when this report came out, but the President and the GOP are absolutely crushing them in fundraising heading into the 2020 elections.
The Trump campaign raised a whopping $54 million and the RNC trailed close behind with $51 million.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said, “Our massive fundraising success is a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump. No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm or President Trump’s outstanding record of results.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said the fundraising is enabling Republicans to “identify troves of new supporters online and continue investing in our unprecedented field program.”
“Our grassroots army is already hard at work — putting us in prime position to reelect President Trump and Republicans across the country,” she said.
So far, Democrat presidential candidates haven’t even come close to President Trump’s fundraising numbers.
Fox News reports, “While most candidates have not yet reported their second-quarter figures, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg reported raising $24.8 million in the last three months. Former Vice President Joe Biden hinted two weeks ago that his campaign had raked in nearly $20 million since he declared his candidacy in late April. Sen. Bernie Sanders reported raising $24 million in the second quarter.”
