2015 turned out to be a “historic” year for the GOP, according to Chairman Reince Priebus. Pulling in $105.6 million, the Republican National Committee managed to set a fundraising record for the party during a non-election year. He also added that they have $18.7 million cash on hand.
Priebus shared the news Wednesday morning on Twitter:
