RED WAVE: RNC Raises $252 Million this Election Cycle, DNC Hits $116 Million

Originally published at:

The Republican National Committee raised a staggering amount of money this election cycle and outpaced Democrats by more than two-to-one; raising serious questions over the DNC’s over-hyped “blue wave” this November.

The RNC officially took in $252 million this election cycle, including a record-setting haul of $16.4 million in August alone. The numbers dwarf the DNC’s fundraising efforts, with Democrats raking in approximately $116 million from January 2017 to July 2018.

“An RNC official told The Hill that the committee will report $16.4 million raised in August, which is the RNC’s largest monthly haul of the cycle. That brings the national party’s total fundraising to $252 million as of Wednesday,” writes the Hill. “The DNC has raised about $116 million from January 2017 until July 2018, and ended that month with $7.8 million in the bank.”

“Enthusiasm for President Trump and his successful agenda is fueling our record-breaking fundraising and energizing our grassroots supporters,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel.
