Trump Campaign, RNC Raise $125M in Third Quarter

The Trump campaign and the RNC announced Tuesday they have raised $125 million in the third quarter, and over $300 million this year alone.

The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $125 million in the third quarter as the 2020 race for the White House continues to heat up.

According to the Trump campaign, it has $156 million in the bank and has raised over $308 million just this year alone.

President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale weighed in on the massive fundraising haul Tuesday via twitter saying, “Huge fundraising haul this quarter. The @gop and @realDonaldTrump campaign brought in 125 million!!!@GOPChairwoman has been killing it. She’s a great partner as we go on to win 4 more years.”

Members of the campaign have actually touted the Democrats’ recent impeachment efforts citing it as a boost for the influx of funding.

The campaign has taken in over $30 million solely from online donations via WinRed, which began back in July.

This announcement comes after the Trump campaign and the RNC raised $105 million in the second quarter, with $100 million cash on hand at that point.

Meanwhile, August proved to be a groundbreaking month for reelection efforts after the RNC announced it raised a record-breaking $23.5 million.

The $23.5 million only includes direct contributions to the RNC, and does not include money raised by the joint fundraising committees. 

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has recently praised the Democrats for the committee’s recent fundraising hauls suggesting they have reenergized voters with their faulty policies. 

According to McDaniel, “The more Democrats demonize President Trump and his supporters, the more boots we can put on the ground to re-elect him. Between the President’s accomplishments and our grassroots infrastructure, Republicans are going to be unstoppable in 2020!”

Representatives for the RNC have clarified the money will go toward turning historically blue states red in the 2020 presidential election. 

Some of the states the Trump campaign will reportedly target include Nevada, New Hampshire, and Minnesota.

The next reelection rally is scheduled to take place in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s home district in Minnesota, on October 10.
