Trump wins the fundraising poll
President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised a total of $125 million in the third quarter.The RNC needs to use its advantage to defeat the Democrats in vulnerable districts who are pushing the latest coup attempt against the President. They also need to find effective advertising outlets that do not support the coup attempt.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale announced the three-month total in a tweet Tuesday afternoon. The pro-Trump groups, which also include his joint fundraising entities with the GOP, have raised more than $308 million in total in 2019, and boast more than $156 million cash on hand.
That fundraising haul far exceeds the $105 million second-quarter joint total and marks a new presidential fundraising record, according to the Associated Press.
The Trump campaign enters the last three months of the year building a staggering fundraising edge over the Democrats who hope to challenge him for the White House next year. In a field of 19 presidential primary candidates, even the top Democratic fundraisers trail the Trump operation by tens of millions of dollars.
The Republican National Committee’s most recent financial disclosure showed that the organization held $53.8 million cash on hand at the end of August. The Democratic National Committee, by contrast, had $8.2 million on hand at that time.
