Rep. Devin Nunes has become a fundraising geyser, raising approximately $5 million in the second quarter from tens of thousands of grassroots contributors who are rewarding the California Republican for defending President Trump against suggestions that he colluded with the Russians to win the White House.
Nunes, chairman of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, closed the period with $6.1 million in cash on hand to spend on his re-election campaign. The congressman’s second quarter haul is nearly three-and-a-half times the remarkable $1.25 million he raised in the first three months of the year, and comes after his political team invested in a national small-dollar fundraising program that kicked off after the House Intelligence Committee completed it’s investigation into the 2016 presidential campaign.
The article goes on to state the following:
Nunes at mid-year had raised around $6.25 million; the congressman raised approximately $1.25 million in all of 2017, before he earned a reputation as a staunch Trump defender and became the chief antagonist of special counsel Robert Mueller’s federal probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion by the president and his associates.
His Democratic challenger in the general election is Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz, who is outpacing all previous Nunes challengers in fundraising. A Democratic poll released in late June showed Janz trailing Nunes by 8 points.
