McCarthy Raised a Record-Shattering $23 Million in Q1 2019

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced Monday that he raised an historic $23.06 million during the first quarter of 2019.

Politico Playbook reported that the huge haul is “believed to be the biggest ever of any House Republican leader — including speaker of the House.”

McCarthy transferred $5.56 million to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in March, bringing his total transferred to the House GOP’s campaign arm to $7.28 million for the first quarter of 2019.

In addition, McCarthy “transferred or raised $12.5 million to campaign efforts for members, candidates, and supporting organizations,” according to a press release.

“Republicans are on the offensive — and the American people are counting on it. After just one quarter the new Democrat majority is already wasting it away — spending more time appeasing the new Democrat socialists than solving problems,” McCarthy said in a statement about his fundraising haul. “In fact, Democrats have underperformed the Republican House majority last Congress on nearly every measure.”

“Instead of working through their promises such as infrastructure reform and lowering the cost of healthcare, the Democrats are obsessed with trying to damage President Trump and avoid the reality of their ineffective majority,” McCarthy added.

McCarthy said he is “100 percent committed to giving our members and candidates every resource advantage possible to debate the issues and win the arguments that will decide our country’s future,” adding that this fundraising haul marks “the beginning of our journey to take back the House.”

To put McCarthy’s staggering fundraising total in perspective, in 2016 when Speaker Pelosi was in the minority, she raised just $16 million in the first quarter of 2016 – an election year – to support House Democrats.
