Credits the impeachment theater
Thursday, the Republican National Convention announced what they’re calling the “largest-ever off-cycle fundraising haul in history for either Party.”
The RNC raked in a whopping $27.3 million in September alone.
From the RNC:
“While Democrats focus on fighting President Trump, Republicans have prioritized voters and we have another record-breaking fundraising month–the highest ever off-cycle–to show for it,” said Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “Voters are tired of Democrats’ petty politics and baseless witch hunts, and their shameful attacks have only energized our grassroots army and allowed us to lay the groundwork for Republicans to take back the House, expand our majority in the Senate and re-elect President Trump in 2020.”
RNC Fundraising Fast Facts:
Receipts for September 2019: $27.3 million
Receipts for 2019-2020 Cycle: $168.7 million
Total cash on hand: $59.2 million
*Note: To date, the RNC has more than doubled the DNC’s fundraising. As of the last filing period, the DNC carried $7.3 million in debt.
This announcement follows the RNC and Trump Campaign’s massive $125 million Q3 haul announced earlier this month. The RNC is already investing this money into targeting vulnerable House Democrats over their support for the impeachment charade—$2.35 million to date—and continues to invest in growing its permanent ground game operation to expand the map in 2020 and benefit President Trump and Republican candidates nationwide.
“RNC and the Trump re-election campaign announced a massive third-quarter war chest of $125.7 million,” reports Fox News.
The party spent $2.3 million to keep the pressure on vulnerable House Democrats, as part of the campaign, $2 million for ads across television and digital, and an additional $350,000 multimedia buy that it announced this week on platforms like YouTube, Hulu, and Facebook.
The multimedia buy this week focuses on peer-to-peer texting and phone calls to more than 30 House Democrat districts, encouraging voters to call their congressman or congresswoman and “stop the madness.” The party also is continuing investment into Facebook petitions, encouraging voters to sign up and “Take a Stand” against impeachment.
“Our goal is to cause chaos,” RNC spokesman Rick Gorka, who is heading up the campaign, told Fox News in an interview earlier this month. “This is a poison pill. When you couple the impeachment process with the socialist policies being espoused by 2020 Democrats, it’s going to sink their chances at the ballot box, especially with those crucial swing voters and independents across the country.”
Contrary to media narratives indicating Republicans are in trouble, RNC fundraising continues to dwarf that of the DNC. Our previous coverage:DONATE
