    Democrats claim to be the party of women. They claim to represent minorities and their interests. One thing they can't deny: numbers, the cold, hard data. Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing data has shown that more women donated to President Donald Trump's campaign in the first quarter of the year than any of the 2020 Democrats. 10,375 women donated to Trump. The Democrat who came in behind Trump was Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), but even then she only had 3,850 women donate to her campaign. According to the Center for Responsive Politics' website, Open Secrets, the majority of Trump's female...
  • Wait until you see Chris Collins’ fundraising numbers

    04/17/2019 10:18:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | April 17, 2019 | JAZZ SHAW
    The last time we checked in on New York Congressman Chris Collins (R) after his arrest for insider trading, the bizarre story of his continuing political career had quieted down considerably. After initially suspending his campaign, Collins decided to make a run for another term in office in his western New York district. Since his trial wouldn’t be starting until this year, there was no danger of him being frog-marched out of office in the middle of the campaign. He went on to win (though far more narrowly than in previous years) and I’d assumed he’d be spending a fair...

    RUSH: You know, we’ve had all these stories the past two, three weeks about all the money the Democrat candidates are raising. Crazy Bernie raised this much, Kamala Harris raised this much, Mayor Pete raised seven million. Mayor Pete officially announced yesterday, by the way. And the oppo research was instant. The oppo research attacks on Mayor Pete were instant. And you know what it was? That he one time said “all lives matter.” Oh, he did! So here come the White Walkers of the left to come in here, the marching dead from the left to try to start...

    Booker announced the figure in an email to supporters. The sum puts him near the back of the pack in fundraising with roughly 10 months to go before the start of primary voting. Of those candidates that have announced their figures, only the entrepreneur and rank outsider Andrew Yang announced raising less.
  • Suspense: Was Beto’s First Day Of Fundraising A Bust?

    If ever a single day of fundraising could make or break a candidate’s campaign, it’s this guy this year against this field.Team Beto knew it too. On Thursday morning, when he formally announced his candidacy, his campaign sent an email to supporters declaring, “What we raise in the first 24 hours will set the tone in the national conversation about the viability of our campaign.” That’s correct. If anything could instantly erase doubts about O’Rourke’s viability, a bombshell first-day number could. “The Senate campaign wasn’t a fluke,” people would say. “Those donors didn’t shower him with cash because they...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center said Thursday that it had fired its co-founder and chief trial lawyer, Morris Dees, after nearly a half-century, during which he helped build the organization into a fearsome powerhouse that focused on hate crimes and with an endowment that approached half a billion dollars. The group’s president, Richard Cohen, did not give a specific reason for the dismissal of Mr. Dees, 82, on Wednesday. But Mr. Cohen said in a statement that as a civil-rights group, the S.P.L.C. was “committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and...

    House Democrats' campaign arm sent out an email on Tuesday night to fundraise off of President Trump’s own attempts to raise money before his national prime-time address. Trump sent an email asking his supporters to raise $500,000 for his “Official Secure the Border Fund" at the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, before his 9 p.m. EST speech. “Just look at the facts: drugs are poisoning our loved ones, MS-13 gang members are threatening our safety, illegal criminals are flooding our nation,” the Trump email stated.

    Kaitlyn Lee, an 11-year-old runner from Huntsville, Alabama, started small when she first began raising money to help children with cancer. It began when she was just 7 years old. Her first goal was to raise $1,000, which she set in July 2015 and reached by October. After Lee reached that, she wanted to continue fundraising and set goal milestones of $10,000 and $15,000. When she met those by January and March of 2017 respectively, she set a goal of $25,000, which she reached by September of 2017. Then, she decided to double down and aim for $50,000 in donations....

    The world can sometimes be an amazing place, full of beauty, charity and as the founder of the website in question, Rob Solomon puts it tikkun olam (Hebrew for repairing the world). One of those places, if you’re looking for a replenishment of your faith in humanity, is a site by the name of GoFundMe, which is a platform where people can ask for help and get it from people just like them. It can help with education to dealing with national disaster and anything in between. The site itself has seen a great deal of success, with a reported...

    This year’s midterm elections are shaping up to be record-breaking for several reasons. More women have been elected to Congress than ever before, and voter turnout was at an all-time high. But it was also record-breaking for the sheer amount of money spent. The numbers are still being tallied, but according to the Center for Responsive Politics, we are on track for an election cost of more than $5 billion. As the dust settles and the final votes roll in, many are asking: was it worth it? The short answer is… it depends. Democrats spent $801 million to take back...

    During the race’s final debate Tuesday, GOP Senate hopeful Geoff Diehl accused Democratic incumbent Elizabeth Warren of “illegally” fund-raising off the controversial confirmation vote for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Warren was caught off guard by the accusation and said she didn’t know what Diehl was talking about. She said she’d look into it. It turns out, a conservative group that calls itself the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, or FACT, filed a complaint Monday against Warren and Senator Kamala Harris of California for violating Senate ethics rules with fund-raising e-mails ahead of the final vote on Kavanaugh.

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said its online fundraising for the 2018 election cycle surpassed $100 million on Tuesday. "The DCCC made the early and aggressive investments necessary to build a top-tier online fundraising operation, and it’s paid off massively," DCCC Chief Digital Officer Julia Ager told The Hill in a statement. "The outpouring of support from grass-roots donors has allowed us to invest in over 80 races, fund an unprecedented $30 million base engagement and turnout campaign, and hold Republicans accountable every step of the way." Politico first reported the news earlier on Wednesday. In 2016, the DCCC had...

    The liberal American Jewish organization J Street sent out an email on Monday, using the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting as a peg to encourage supporters to mobilize against Republicans in next week’s election – and carrying a “Donate” button. The Republican Jewish Coalition called the move “a disgrace.” After telling recipients of the email that “our first duty is to come together in support of the victims, their loved ones, the congregation and the entire city of Pittsburgh” and “to grieve and to comfort one another, standing together in solidarity,” J Street president Jeremy Ben-Ami shifts direction. In bold type, he...

    President Donald Trump has raised more than $100 million toward his re-election bid, a staggering sum more than two years before the 2020 presidential election. The president's fundraising total, which includes his official campaign and two other joint accounts, raised about $18 million between July and September. That brings his fundraising total since January 2017 above the $100 million mark. And he closed September with almost $47 million in the bank. The latest numbers, filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday's quarterly fundraising deadline, provide a glimpse into how Trump is stockpiling money for his re-election bid at a...

    On Monday night, President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign announced that it had raised in excess of $18 million over the past three months, a haul that means the incumbent has already raised $106 million for a race that is more than two years away. That's a stunning -- and totally unprecedented -- amount of money for a sitting president to have collected less than two years into his first term.

    Democrats continued an aggressive fundraising tear between July and September, giving the party’s candidates in some of the most competitive House and Senate races a sharp financial edge in the final stretch of the midterm election cycle. More than 70 Democratic House hopefuls outraised Republican incumbents in the third quarter of 2018, according to an analysis by The Hill of newly filed fundraising reports. Eight Democrats running for House seats raised more than $3 million in the same period, while 30 raised more than $2 million and 60 raked in more than $1 million. Three Democratic candidates brought in upwards...

    A flood of donations has allowed Democratic candidates to outspend GOP candidates by almost 2:1 in 80 competitive districts since July, according to an analysis by the Associated Press. The donations will allow Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic House candidates to spend $50 million on advertising more than GOP candidates in the run-up to election day, according to the Washington Post. Much of the extra funding comes from small-dollar donations via the Act Blue website, which offers Democrats an easy way to direct donations to their favored local candidates. USA Today reported in August: The group predicts donations will top $1.5...

    Establishment Dems furious at porn lawyer Attorney Michael Avenatti has come under fire over a now-deleted tweet encouraging people to “chip in for Beto now,” linking to what appeared to be a fundraising page for Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke. In the fine print of the now-deleted campaign, however, O’Rourke supporters discovered that half the proceeds went to Avenatti’s Fight PAC, formed a little over seven weeks ago. Users were able to manually allocate funds entirely to O’Rourke, however the default sent half of all money collected to Avenatti’s Political Action Committee. “‘It is pretty skeezy,’ said Brendan Fischer,...
