The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised a historic amount of money in February, as Republicans gear up for 2020, The Daily Caller News Foundation learned Wednesday, March 20.
The RNC raised $14.6 million, a record high for the month of February in a non-election year, according to internal numbers shared with TheDCNF. The number is also the second highest of all time for the month of February, going back to 2004. The party is also zero dollars in debt as the RNC has continued to beat The Democratic National Committee (DNC) in fundraising.
Nearly 60 percent of the RNC’s donations, $8.9 million, came from small-dollar donors. Also the RNC and President Donald Trump’s campaign’s joint fundraising committee (TMAGAC) has already had five seven-figure fundraising days.
This comes as the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) said it raised $11.6 million in February on Wednesday, the most ever raised in the month.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has continued to lead the committee to historic fundraising numbers, giving the party hope for the 2020 elections.
The RNC and National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) also raised a historic amount of money in the month of January, as Senate Republicans gear up for a fight to keep the Senate. The NRSC raised a record $5.58 million in January, the most money ever raised by the committee in that month.
The committee filed a record-setting $19.8 million January 2017 after Trump was elected into office.
