President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee hauled in $105 million during the second quarter and have $100 million on hand.
The New York Post reports,
Trump’s committees raised $54 million and the RNC brought in $51 million.
”Our massive fundraising success is a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump,” said campaign manager Brad Parscale. “No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm or President Trump’s outstanding record of results.”
RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said the huge take will be invested in an online effort to identify new Trump supporters and to expand “our unprecedented field program.”
“Our grassroots army is already hard at work – putting us in prime position to re-elect President Trump and Republicans across the country,” she said.
The campaign, which said its online fundraising in the second quarter surpassed the first half of 2018, did not release the number of donors or the average amount of the donation.
Candidates have until July 15 under Federal Election Commission rules to release their second-quarter fundraising totals.
So far, Pete Buttigieg is the only Democratic presidential candidate who has released his totals.
His campaign announced Monday it had collected $24.8 million in the past three months — outpacing the $7 million he raised in the first quarter.
The mayor of South Bend, Ind., said the average donation was $47.42 and that he has $22.6 million on hand.
Sen. Kamala Harris’ 2020 campaign said it had raised $2 million in the first 24 hours after last Thursday’s Democratic debate, where she had a breakout moment after questioning front-runner Joe Biden on race issues.
