President Trump and the Republican National Committee raised more than $76 million during the first three months of the year, closing out the first quarter with a stunning $82 million in the bank for 2020 as Democratic presidential candidates jockey for position and money.
The Trump campaign raised $30.3 million, reporting $40.8 million in cash on hand to spend on the president’s 2020 reelection; the RNC raised $45.8 million, finishing the period with $41 million in its coffers. Trump’s campaign organization and the national party apparatus he oversees are closely intertwined, making their combined fundraising efforts a more accurate readout of the president’s financial strength heading into the next election.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The success of our fundraising is a testament to the continued enthusiasm and support for President Trump, his policies, and the litany of promises he has fulfilled for the American people,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “The RNC is already investing these donations into our expansive, permanent, data-driven field program to put President Trump and Republicans in prime-position for another historic election night in 2020.”
The more than one dozen Democratic candidates brought in more than the Trump campaign in total. But the eventual nominee will have a lot of catching up to do to match the president, who has the advantage of an early head start. He declared for reelection soon after being inaugurated in 2017 and has steadily been raising money ever since.
