Still on top: RNC out-fundraises DNC by $6 million in September


Continuing their monthly record of out-fundraising the Democratic National Committee this year, the Republican National Committee has done it again, raising $6 million more than the DNC for the month of September.

The Republican National Committee lapped Democrats’ September funding by $6 million.

Republicans whipped up $10 million in September compared to the DNC’s $4 million.

The RNC has consistently beaten Democrats in fundraising since the start of 2017.

This news continues to be disappointing for new DNC chair Tom Perez, who has led the party since February.

Republicans’ funding is up from August, when it raised $7.3 million, compared to the DNC’s $4.35 million in August fundraising, according to the FEC.

Before September’s numbers the RNC had $45.8 million total in cash on hand and the DNC had $6.8 million.

Nancy Pelosi has been taking heat for her party’s struggles in recent elections, and now it appears she can’t even deliver in the fundraising realm, giving definition to the concerns of her colleagues that she doesn’t have much left to offer the party.

Top House Democrat Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) spoke earlier this month about Pelosi possibly taking a step back.

“I do think we have this real breadth and depth of talent within our caucus and I do think it’s time to pass a torch to a new generation of leaders and I want to be a part of that transition,” said Sanchez, the fifth-ranking Democrat in the House.

Sanchez, who serves as vice chair of the House Democratic caucus, explained that the top leaders, including Pelosi, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn (D-S.C.), have been running the House Democratic caucus for over ten years, leaving out others who are ready to move into those roles and change things up.

“I want to see that happen,” Sanchez said. “I think we have too many great members here that don’t always get the opportunities that they should. I would like to see that change.”
