Skip to comments.This week in politics: RNC breaks another record, builds on fundraising advantage
Posted on 08/20/2018 12:08:08 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The Republican National Committee raised $14.2 million in July -- the most it has ever raised in that month in a non-presidential year -- bringing its total haul for the cycle to $227.2 million. Despite historic odds and voter enthusiasm favoring Democrats, the RNC is finding record-setting support among its donors, according to numbers shared first with CBS News. The RNC raised more in July of this year than it did in 2010 and 2014 combined.
After transferring 8 million dollars split evenly between the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in July, the RNC started August with $41.9 million cash-on-hand and no debt.
According to its last FEC report at the end of June, the RNC had more than five times as much in the bank as the Democratic National Committee.

Blue wave my ***.
Time to start spending it on ads to ridicule Democrats by showing their crazy quotes.
In OH, it looks like the State Republican Party is going to let pro-Trump candidates lose. Kasick and his buddies are truly demented.
Better spend it to GOTV for this Fall.
Romneys niece seems to be doing a bang-up job at RNC. At least in terms of fund raising.
The RNC and the Republican establishment have a long history of wasting money and wasting opportunities.
They have a long history of running really stupid campaigns and losing elections that they should win.
President Trump was outspent something like 100 to 1 in the primaries and the general election.
Ask John McCain, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush how wisely they spent the enormous amount of money that was donated to them.
That’s where I stopped reading.
All mailings. . no ground game
Part of that was mine. In the past, I’ve been loathe to give the RNC a penny. But I’m pretty confident that they’re lined up behind Trump right now, and I’m also keenly interested that the Democrats not take over either house of Congress in November.
Despite historic odds and voter enthusiasm favoring Democrats...
And how much money was raised from all that enthusiasm?
BS Fake News! Despite historic odds and voter enthusiasm favoring Democrats,...
A couple decades ago before I gave up on them, they used to send me solicitations for money, along with lengthy questionnaires as though they really cared how the questionnaire were answered. I'm sure they all went immediately into the dumpster.
I voiced my concerns in direct letters to them about illegal immigration . Their response? Crickets. I would say that the RNC is as culpable as anyone for the wink-wink at American immigration law. The RNC has always been okey dokey with flooding the country with illegals.
Bingo. During the 2012 election, Obama's exuberant people with handfuls of fliers and brochures and sample ballots must have come around to the house about 8 or 9 times trying to get my vote. A couple days before the voting, a very frail elderly man appeared at my door asking me to vote for Romney. God bless him. I'm sure he had no relation to the RNC in any shape or form. He was just some old guy on his own.
I gave the RNC so much of an earful the last time they called for money (2013) that they hung up on me.
They only have $42MM after raising $227MM and the election season hasn’t even begun. To think we have to rely on these idiots to manage the federal budget. The RNC isn’t doing squat. all their fundraising venues state it is a joint effort between them and T for president committee. People think they are giving to T.
They’ve been running some top-notch ads against Joe Manchin, using his support for Hildebeeste and his lousy voting record against him.
They are more persistent trying to get money out of me than they are fielding good candidates or any candidates at all. One wonder where the money goes? I suspect money laundering because they aren’t working like the dems getting more people registered.
Today is not history. Past dumbassery is irrelevant in the Age of Trump.
