RNC closes out best-ever non-presidential year with record numbers for December

RNC closes out best-ever non-presidential year with record numbers for December

 

EXCLUSIVE: The Republican National Committee reported its best-ever non-presidential year on Thursday -- the latest signal that the party is outpacing Democrats as they race towards the 2020 elections and battle over impeachment.

 

Data provided to Fox News showed that Republicans collected $26.5 million in December, a record for the month and a roughly $6 million increase from November. While the party has repeatedly surpassed fundraising records under Trump, December's numbers indicated that Republican donor enthusiasm was undeterred by Democrats pushing an impeachment inquiry.

 

“Americans are investing in a party and a president that are fighting for them," RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to Fox News.

 

In total, the RNC and Trump's fundraising committees brought in nearly a half-billion dollars ($463.6 million) in 2019, with $194.8 million cash-on-hand. The RNC itself raised $241.1 million, which officials said is a record for a non-presidential election year.

 

"They are tuning out the Democrats’ politically motivated impeachment charade and turning out for the president and his record of results," McDaniel said of donors. "On November 3rd, voters will choose to continue on this path of American greatness by re-electing President Trump and voting for Republicans up and down the ballot.”

 

Democrats voted along party lines to approve articles of impeachment around the middle of the month, Dec. 18. According to the RNC, 72 percent of its December online donations were raised since that day.

 

In November, for example, the party reported a record $20.6 million for the month and claimed it had the largest cash on hand amount since its 2012 pre-election report. Between November and December, the party increased its cash on hand from $63.2 million to $72 million for the 2020 election cycle.

 

Those figures, along with its $0 in debt, offered a stark contrast to Democrats' $6.5 million in debt that the party reported in November.

 

As of the end of that month, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) raised $83.6 million, about $20 million above what the RNC raised ($63.2 million) in just the month of November. For comparison, the RNC banked $214.6 million by that point in the year.

 

The GOP fundraising numbers underscored how Republicans have sought to turn the impeachment fight to their advantage, tapping into an outraged base to fuel not only the president's 2020 re-election effort but also a political offensive against congressional Democrats.

 

At the end of last year, the party announced its "Stop the Madness" campaign which targets Senate Democrats in key states like New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and Colorado.

 

Not only has fundraising reached record highs, the RNC has built out its largest field and data operation in history. That included the "Trump Victory" initiative which recently knocked on its one-millionth door.

 

That, along with a charged Democratic base, indicated an especially charged political environment going into 2020. The Democratic frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, raised $22.7 million in the fourth quarter, putting him neck and neck with Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg's numbers ($24.7 million). By contrast, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., raked in $34.5 million -- substantially higher than his progressive counterpart, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. ($21.2 million).

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Thanks Nancy!!

EXPLAIN WHY A VETERAN LIKE YOURSELF SUPPORTS T RUMP ???    The New York Supreme Court ordered President Donald Trump to pay $2 million as punishment for "stealing" charitable donations intended for veterans groups.    T RUMP uses VETERANS for photo-opts and even trashed a GOLD STAR family.    GOOD GAWD man.....what is wrong ......well .....

 

I hate to burst your enthusiam  but   I just  REMEMBERED   that the KOCH brothers piled billions of dollars on the presidential race  plus all the others who wanted someone in power to give them tax breaks and take away social benefits to pay for it.   

 

   -----and yet OBAMA was elected TWICE.

BTW- Trump has done more for VETS than any President in history. VA hospital is prime example allowing vets to go hospitals even private ones when VA hospitals can`t accomadate them.

Maybe you had better direct your question to tRump? The Republicans and McConnell wouldn't allow witnesses in the Senate Trial, would you allow witnesses in answering the question as to whether or not tRump did this?  An investigation uncovered it, he is being charged for it and being ordered to pay more than one charity back. tRump is a thief among many other illicit things. Oh yeah, what a great year for tRump and the Republicans, it has included an impeachment and a witness free McConnell/Republican rigged illicit Senate Trial. tRump supporters sure are proud of some strange things to be proud of.
