President Donald Trump and the RNC have landed another devastating fundraising blow t0 the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) raised a whopping $125 million in the third quarter of this year, crushing President Barack Obama’s record $70 million raised for his reelection bid for the same period in 2011.
The joint campaigns raised $150 million earlier this year.
Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale took to Twitter to express his joy over the fundraising hall. He was elated to say the least, even retweeting Obama’s former advisor David Pfeiffer, who stated “This should be a giant wake up call. Trump is going to have more resources to deploy earlier and more aggressively than any candidate in history.”
✅$125M raised combined
✅$156M cash on hand
✅$308M raised YTD
Twice as much cash on hand as Obama had at same point in 2011.
