    President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden both set eye-popping fundraising records last month – but Biden’s records were larger. The former vice president’s campaign announced on Wednesday night that they, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and their joint fundraising committees hauled in a combined $141 million in June, which was by far the campaign’s best monthly figure to date. Biden’s campaign called it a “jaw-dropping sum of money”

    EXCLUSIVE: The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign posted their largest online fundraising day ever on Sunday, bringing in $14 million across three entities on the president's birthday — smashing their previous online fundraising record of $10 million on Oct. 19, 2016. The surge in cash comes as Republicans' war chest continues to dwarf Democrats' holdings, as it has for the entire primary cycle. Trump and the RNC – which have been building a fundraising juggernaut for more than three years – have roughly $255 million cash on hand, compared with the approximately $100 million the Joe Biden campaign...

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Routt County Sheriff Garrett Wiggins suggested the ongoing protests around the country aren’t about race. Wiggins instead indicated that people are “trying to create chaos in our nation during a campaign year.” ... This nonsense our country is experiencing has nothing to do with race,” Wiggins ... “It is totally political, fueled by extreme ideology and haters of America.” Wiggins .. bases his opinions on thorough research and data, and “the data does not support this protest movement where cops are targeting blacks and blacks are overwhelmingly killed by police more than whites. ...

    He has lifted the spirits of the nation with his £39million fundraising effort to celebrate turning 100. Now Colonel Tom Moore – who has already been promoted from captain – is to be recognised further with a knighthood, it was revealed last night. The Second World War veteran received a special nomination from the Prime Minister, which is to become the first of dozens of coronavirus crisis gongs. Boris Johnson described him as a national treasure and said he had provided a 'beacon of light' through the Covid-19 crisis. Sir Tom has raised a remarkable £32.8million for NHS charities by...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden announced on Monday night that he brought in $46.7 million dollars in March, the most the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s raised in a single month since launching his campaign nearly one year ago. Biden – who struggled to bring in cash for much of his campaign, has seen his fundraising spike the past couple of months. He raised just $8.9 million in January, but doubled his haul to $18 million in February. Thanks to a series of sweeping primary victories by Biden stating in South Carolina on Feb. 29 and extending into mid-March, all but...

    National Journal ^ | April 20, 2020 | Josh Krashauer
    Congressional Republicans continue to face a significant fundraising disadvantage against their Democratic opponents, according to newly released first-quarter campaign finance reports. These money woes will only increase GOP panic over their prospects in hotly contested Senate and House races. The fundraising disparity is all-encompassing: Of the 10 most-competitive Senate races, Democratic candidates outraised their Republican rivals in eight of them—often by massive margins. Republican senators with built-in fundraising advantages were badly outmatched by lesser-known Democratic challengers. In the bellwether Maine and North Carolina races that will determine which party holds the Senate majority, Democrats raised more than twice the amount...

    Playing the role of life preserver, the liberal media are desperately trying to buoy Joe Biden’s sinking candidacy — but the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee keeps clinging grimly to the anchor that is dragging him down to the depths of political irrelevance. The New York Times recently published an article arguing that “Joe Biden’s campaign and top donors are racing to reimagine the ways they raise money as worries grow that the coronavirus could choke off contributions from donors big and small.” The article sought to put a positive spin on Biden’s predicament, analyzing how the Democrat front-runner might be...

    Joe Biden’s campaign is looking to expand its fundraising operation as it prepares to take on President Donald Trump in the general election. Officials within Biden’s organization have discussed bringing in a new group of regional fundraising advisors, including former aides to Sen. Kamala Harris’ and Pete Buttigieg’s campaigns, who could help them expand their donor network, according to people familiar with the matter. These people declined to be named because the talks were private. Biden had a strong March, raising more than $30 million in online donations, as the coronavirus has pushed his campaign into a fully online platform,...

    Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove slammed Joe Biden on "Hannity" Thursday for sending out an email warning Americans about coronavirus and soliciting donations for his presidential campaign. Hannity noted that Biden had joined fellow Democrats in criticizing President Trump during the early onset of the virus outbreak after the incumbent ordered strict border security measures, which Biden's primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called "xenophobic." Hannity called Biden "sick" and asked Rove to react.
  • RNC Brings In Record January Haul, Dwarfing Dems' Total

    Real Clear Politics ^ | 02/22/20 | Philip Wegmann
    With a fundraising haul that set a January record, Republicans have a lot of money. New figures show the Republican National Committee raised $27.2 million last month, bringing its total this presidential cycle to $268.3 million, easily outdistancing Democrats’ $103.1 million. For comparison on the GOP side, the last time a Republican president was an incumbent at this stage of the campaign, the RNC raised $107 million in 2004. All this 2020 money makes RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel very happy. The RNC has burned through some money but has a reserve of $76 million. What’s more, the party doesn’t have...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has repeatedly called on rivals to disavow super PACs supporting them, on Thursday declined to disavow a new super PAC that’s supporting her. Asked on the campaign trail in Nevada whether she’d disavow the support, Warren told reporters that she’s come to the point that she can’t unless other candidates do too. “I couldn’t get a single Democrat to go along with me. Finally, we reached the point a few weeks ago where all of the men who were still in this race and on the debate stage all had either super PACs or they...

    Liberal ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl told Clinton-ite and Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that the Democrat party does not look energized. The Democrats held a fundraiser in New Hampshire Saturday night and there were empty seats in the arena. This is the same arena in Manchester that President Trump packed to the brim with cheering supporters and many more in the overflow outside! The Democrat party is also fractured because of the infighting between Bernie Sanders supporters who can’t stand Pete Buttigieg. Biden has also been taking shots at Buttigieg and “Socialist” Bernie Sanders.

    The Democrats’ impeachment saga not only ended Wednesday with a double acquittal but a $100 million windfall for President Trump’s reelection campaign efforts, the Republican National Committee (RNC) revealed Saturday. The RNC, Trump's campaign and their joint fundraising committee have raked in $117 million in online donations since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry on Sept. 24, 2019, thanks to an influx of new small-dollar donors who wanted to stand by the president. "We've seen through our record-breaking fundraising that the Democrat's bogus impeachment galvanized President Trump's supporters across the country to contribute financially to his re-election efforts,”...

    Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign raked in a whopping $25 million in January alone and will use the haul to bankroll ads and staff across the critical Super Tuesday slate. The Vermont senator raised more in January than in any other month in the 2020 Democratic presidential race, his campaign said in announcing the haul Thursday. It added that it received 1.3 million donations from roughly 650,000 people. The flood of cash came just before the start of 2020 primary nominating contests. Iowa held its first-in-the-nation caucuses Monday, followed by contests this month in New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

    We are told that President Trump has an issue of lack support for woman. I figured that one way to measure that is to look at where the donations are coming from and see how that compares to the Democrat front-runners. I looked at the fundraising demographics for Trump, Sanders, Biden, Warren and Mayor Pete from December 16, 2019 report found at Open Secrets. Trump has received 34.7% from women. But Bernie, Biden and Mayor Pete are not generating much more support. Bernie has received 39.7% from women. Biden 43.1% from women. Mayor Pete received 39.5% from women. Only Warren...

    Bernie Sanders announced Thursday that he raised more than $34.5 million in the final three months of last year, an impressive haul underscoring that a recent heart attack hasn’t slowed the Vermont senator’s fundraising prowess with the start of the Democratic presidential primaries looming. Sanders' campaign said that came from more than 1.8 million donations, including from 40,000 new donors on the final day of the year alone. His total exceeds the strong $24.7 million that Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced a day earlier that he'd raised during last year's fourth quarter. “Bernie Sanders is...
