Month after month Republicans are coming out on top
WASHINGTON D.C. (Texas Insider Report) The Republican National Committee (RNC) received $20.8 million in donations in July nearly 3 times that of the Democrat National Committee (DNC). While the RNC raised $20.8 million in July the DNC raised just $7.7 million the RNC announced Wednesday in a statement detailing their latest quarterly fundraising totals.
Meanwhile President Donald Trumps Campaign is also raking in the cash and its coming from small donors. In partnership with the RNC the Trump Campaign raised over $100 million in the 2nd Quarter of the year.
Republicans continued to see record enthusiasm for President Trumps agenda in July and Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel (right) is leading the charge. This past month was our best off-cycle July in party history the Republican National Committee (RNC) said Wednesday while publishing its fundraising numbers for July 2019.
Across the aisle the DNCs fundraising continued to struggle in July.
And to make matters worse for Democrats on Tuesday Bloomberg reported things have become so desperate at the DNC that Chairman Tom Perez is raising money... in Mexico. Theyve also brought in Hillary Clinton to help for some reason.
Cycle to date Chairwoman McDaniel has raised well over double that of DNC Chairman Tom Perez noted the RNC statement.
Not only did they spend more than they raised theyre mired in over $5.6 million in debt. This massive fundraising discrepancy matters.
Cycle to date the RNC has brought in $117.9 million. We also had our largest online fundraising July ever 1100 more than July 2016 and 1900 more than July 2015 the RNC statement said.
Meanwhile over at the DNC there are been indications that things arent going terribly well. As Politico recently reported:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is in full-blown turmoil.
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (at right D-Ill.) was set to make an unplanned trip to Washington from her district Monday amid an outcry from top black and Latino lawmakers over a lack of diversity in the campaign arms senior management ranks.
Bustos sudden return to D.C. just days after Congress left for a six-week-long August recess comes as aides and lawmakers are calling for systematic changes to the DCCC the partys main election organ.
POLITICO reported earlier this month that black and Hispanic lawmakers are furious with Bustos stewardship of the campaign arm. They say the upper echelon of the DCCC is bereft of diversity and it is not doing enough to reach Latino voters and hire consultants of color.
Several of Bustos senior aides have left in the first six months of her tenure including her chief of staff a black woman and her director of mail and polling director both women.
In addition to fundraising the RNC says has been highly focused on building a solid 2020 ground game through targeted voting. The influx of cash is making that effort easier.
With our fundraising advantage were able to continue investing in our permanent data-driven ground game.
So far we have staff in 16 key target states across the country (Including Regional Political Directors Regional Data Directors and State Directors). Were also able to recruit and train 1000s of volunteers through regular National Weeks of Training program as well as target vulnerable Democrats in key districts with massive ad buys the RNC said.
These are necessary investments in election winning tools that the broke DNC could only dream of making.
In May RNC Party officials also highlighted the partys spending on infrastructure to help candidates in key battleground states.
- The RNC hired 9 Regional Political Directors" covering the Northeast Mid-Atlantic Ohio Valley Southern Atlantic Florida Southern Gulf Midwest and West Pacific.
- It also hired 9 directors for states including Florida and Ohio.
- And it is building out a massive communications operation.
