After Record-setting June, RNC's Fundraising Totals Put the DNC's to Shame

The RNC had a record-setting June, bringing in $13.5 million, which makes the total raised so far in 2017 $75.4 million.

"Our unparalleled fundraising success is due to our loyal network of grassroots donors all across America who support President Trump and our Republican agenda," said Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. "Because of the generous contributions, the RNC will continue to promote conservative values while bolstering our efforts to support, defend, and elect more Republicans."

RNC Finance Chairman Steve Wynn also hailed the success.

"Month after month, the RNC continues to break fundraising records, another testament to the overwhelming support this Republican administration continues to receive from Alaska to Alabama," he said. "It has never been more evident that Republicans are united towards a common goal of making this country great again."

RNC Fundraising Fast Facts:

Receipts for June 2017: $13.5 million
Receipts for 2017: $75.4 million
Total cash on hand: $44.7 million
Total disbursements: $10.6 million

While the numbers are impressive in and of themselves, they are even more so when compared to the DNC, which continues to be dire financial straits.

In June, Democrats only pulled in $5.5 million, meaning the RNC “has six times more money in the bank the DNC,” the GOP’s rapid response director Michael Ahrens noted.

DNC Chair Tom Perez pledged in his campaign for the chairmanship that he’d “build a robust fundraising operation” but so far that has not been the case.

“The DNC’s finances are in even worse shape today than they were at the beginning of the year,” Ahrens said.
