    Multiple liberal outlets fumed at how conservative donors have funded groups who have supported lockdown protests across the country. But they avoided reporting how the left is outspending the right in this election cycle to outside groups by over $100 million. Records reveal that all top liberal donors listed by Open Secrets (59) spent a whopping $191,827,021 combined so far on liberal groups. To contrast, all the top conservative donors listed by Open Secrets (44) only spent $87,767,208 combined on conservative groups. That’s a $104,059,813 disparity. It’s not even close.
  • 'What More Does A Woman Have to Do?' Elizabeth Warren's Donors Share Their Frustrations With Her Exit

    It wasn’t until August 8th, 2019, months into the unofficial start of the Democratic presidential primary, that Naomi Zikmund-Fisher threw her money behind Elizabeth Warren. The 49-year-old social worker from Superior Township, Mich., had supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary. But in Warren, she saw something different: a candidate who had translated Sanders’ progressive talking points into tangible policies, and one who might actually win. She deposited $2,800 – the maximum donation an individual can give a candidate during a primary – into Warren’s campaign. “I thought she had a good chance,” Zikmund-Fisher says. “I gave to...
  • Trump Supporters Celebrate Payoff of Fundraising Efforts in California

    KNTV-TV ^ | October 20, 2019 | Sergio Quintana
    Many supporters of President Donald Trump are celebrating new fundraising figures from California – figures that show him outpacing any single democrat, although he has not raised more than the total amount that Democrats have. The new figures are significant because they’re from so-called “small amount donors,” supporters who gave $200 or less. The figures also show that he has raised much more money than any of his Democratic rivals in what’s usually a democratic state – but the numbers also show that he’s benefiting from being the only viable Republican in the race. Between July and September Trump has...

    Corporate Financiers and big business executives who normally donate to the Democratic Party have expressed uneasiness with the aggressively socialist policy prescriptions of the party’s 2020 presidential contenders. One frightened donor averred that “we can tolerate the Party’s longstanding practice of taking a piece of the action on programs that funnel money to our firms, but now it sounds like they want to carve us up like the proverbial golden goose. I don’t know how we can continue to fund candidates intent on punishing us.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) professed herself “untroubled by talk of a corporate reluctance to donate...

    Democratic donors on Wall Street and in big business are preparing to sit out the presidential campaign fundraising cycle — or even back President Donald Trump — if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the party’s nomination. In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community and found that this opinion was becoming widely shared as Warren, an outspoken critic of big banks and corporations, gains momentum against Joe Biden in the 2020 race. “You’re in a box because you’re a Democrat and you’re thinking, ‘I want to help the party, but she’s going to...

    Olive Garden on Sunday refuted a viral tweet that claimed the company donated to President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, sparking calls for a boycott of the popular Italian restaurant. A tweet Sunday went viral with nearly 50,000 retweets that alleged Olive Garden is funding Trump’s 2020 campaign, writing: “It would be terrible if you shared this and Olive Garden lost business.” “We don’t know where this information came from, but it is incorrect,” Olive Garden tweeted in response Sunday night. “Our company does not donate to presidential candidates.” SNIP TWEET: "So here’s a list of companies supporting Trump’s re-election: -...

    The Republican National Committee has published its fundraising numbers for July 2019 and once again they've completely destroyed the Democratic National Committee on totals. "In July, the RNC continued to see record enthusiasm for President Trump’s agenda and Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is leading the charge: Since 2018, major donors have increased from 33% to roughly 45% of total fundraising. This past month was our best off-cycle July in party history," the RNC released Wednesday. "We brought in $20.8 million in receipts in July (nearly 3 times that of the DNC). Cycle to date, the RNC has brought in $117.9 million....

    In blue Seattle, Trump supporters are starting to come out of hiding Aug. 16, 2019 at 7:00 pm Updated Aug. 17, 2019 at 2:39 pm When word got out during the last presidential election that Seattle developer Martin Selig would be supporting Donald Trump, the blowback from our liberal town, he said, was “stunning.”… In reaction, Selig, a billionaire, retreated from any affiliation with Trump in 2016 and said he wouldn’t even vote for him. It had become problematic just getting along in the city while wearing a MAGA hat.… With nearly 15 months to go before the 2020 election,...

    What’s most fascinating about the controversy raging about Rep. Joaquin Castro’s tweeting out the names of donors to President Trump’s campaign is that Castro’s Republican detractors seem to be admitting to a dirty little secret. By complaining that he’s exposing those donors to public shaming, they’re effectively acknowledging that donating to Trump is shameful. Whoops. To bring you up to date, Castro, the twin brother of Julian Castro, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president , on Tuesday tweeted a list of the 44 donors in his hometown of San Antonio who have made the maximum donations to the...

    The Enterprise ^ | August 13, 2019 | Mina Corpuz
    Political donations went to Donald Trump and about half of the democratic candidates. With the 2020 election a year away, Brockton-area residents have given a total of $42,500 to candidates who are running for president. A review by The Enterprise of Federal Election Commission campaign finance data shows that for 2019 residents made nearly 600 donations with an average of about $450 per donor. President Donald Trump received the greatest number and dollar amount of donations from Brockton-area residents. For the Democrats, the top dollar contributions went to Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana; Bernie Sanders, a Vermont...

    The Republican Party has long been panned by its detractors as the party of big money and big donors -- but donation patterns have changed measurably under President Trump, a Fox News analysis of campaign finance data shows. Sixty-one percent of money raised directly by the Trump campaign this election cycle came from small donors (donations under $200), according to Federal Election Commission figures. That is similar to the proportion Trump raised during the 2016 election cycle, when 65 percent of donations were under $200. And this is dramatically higher than previous Republican nominees. Mitt Romney raised 26 percent of...

    Politics has its style and its substance. Style requires the 2020 candidates to stump in New Hampshire diners and eat corn dogs at Iowa fairs. These stylistic rites of passage in American politics are on the verge of irrelevance as the kingmakers in California push up their primary and as the effort to eliminate the electoral college gains traction among the 2020 Democrats and, more importantly, their donors. Forget the New Hampshire diners and Iowa corn dogs, the truth can be found if you follow the money. The 2020 race is all about touting the democracy of small donors with...

    The Trump-Pence campaign has set a $7 million fundraising goal for Tuesday, the day President Trump is traveling to Orlando, Fla., to officially announce his reelection bid. In a fundraising memo to supporters, he wrote, “I want to do something so HUGE to launch 2020, even Democrats and the Fake News won’t be able to ignore. We need to raise $7,000,000 by 11:59 PM TONIGHT.” Officials said the record amount sought on 'Day One' of the Trump reelection bid is also meant to overshadow the huge amounts three Democrats collected on the first day of their campaign. Just an incredible...

    In the same article, the Post also reports on a backlash against this amazing generosity. A leader of the Yellow Vest movement says that if donors can give so much money to rebuild Notre Dame, “they should stop telling us there is no money to help deal with the social emergency.” But the donations to Notre Dame are coming from private donors. No one denies they have money. It’s the French government that’s running out. Some in the Yellow Vest movement probably favor the government taking yet more money from the wealthy “to help deal with the social emergency.” That’s...
  • Trump wins over big donors who snubbed him in 2016

    Deep-pocketed Republicans who snubbed Donald Trump in 2016 are going all in for him in 2020, throwing their weight behind a newly created fundraising drive that’s expected to dump tens of millions into his reelection coffers. The effort involves scores of high-powered businessmen, lobbyists and former ambassadors who raised big money for George W. Bush, John McCain and Mitt Romney — and who are now preparing to tap their expansive networks for Trump after rebuffing his first presidential bid. The project, which is closely modeled after the famed Pioneers network that helped to fuel Bush’s 2000 campaign, is slated to...
