From April to June of 2019, the Trump campaign and the Republican Party raised a shocking $105 million, raising $54 million and $51 million respectively.
Combine that with their first quarter haul of $75 million (again outpacing Democrats) and Republicans have raised an astonishing $180 million in 2019 alone, maintaining a joint warchest of more than $100 million.
“Our massive fundraising success is a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump. No Democrat candidate can match this level of enthusiasm or President Trump’s outstanding record of results.” -Brad Parscale, Campaign Manager
Meanwhile, the Democrat National Committee (DNC) reported a paltry $8.2 million raised in the second quarter with $9.3 million cash on hand while the RNC boasts a warchest four-times greater at more than $40 million.
Democrat hopefuls also trailed considerably in the second quarter with Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) leading the pack with roughly $26 million $24 million respectively.
One key difference between the two quarters is the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised the bulk of first quarter funds but the Trump campaign raised the bulk of the second.
During the month of June, the RNC more than doubled the donations of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), raising $20.7 million and $8.5 million respectively.
Democrats continue to struggle with fundraising as two dozen presidential hopefuls fight it out in a second round of debates still months away from the nation’s first primary elections.
“Our grassroots army is already hard at work–putting us in prime position to re-elect President Trump and Republicans across the country.” -RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
