The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised nearly $20.8 million, more than double the $8.5 million the Democratic National Committee (DNC) took in from their fundraising haul, in June.
The RNC also spent nearly $14.3 million in June and ended the month with $43.4 million in cash on hand, according to a July 20 Federal Election Commission disclosure. Meanwhile, the DNC spent about $7.5 million in June, ending the month with about $9.2 million in cash on hand.
The latest fundraising data comes after a combined second quarter total of $108 million raised for the RNC and President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign. Combined cash on hand for the second quarter totaling $123.7 million was also reported.
The RNC noted that it has zero dollars in debt, while the DNC reported being $5.7 million in debt, according to FEC filings.
The RNC’s latest fundraising broke records for being the largest ever June haul in a non-presidential year, according to a press release.
“Yet another record-shattering fundraising haul gives us a major advantage over the crowded field of Democrats as the RNC continues investing in our world-class field program and growing our incredible grassroots army,” GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.
“As enthusiasm for this president continues to grow, these resources ensure President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot are in a strong position to win heading into 2020.” read more
