RNC Crushes the DNC in April Fundraising

The Republican National Committee (RNC) more than doubled the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) fundraising for the month of April, according to FEC reports.

The RNC raised a record-shattering $15.9 million in April, while the DNC by comparison raised just $6.6 million, according to new campaign finance data.

The eye-popping discrepancy between the two committees doesn’t stop there, though. The RNC has $34.7 million in the bank, while the DNC has just $7.6 million on hand.

According to Fox News:

“Not only Republicans are beating Democrats in total fundraising, the majority of donations to the RNC came from small donors who donated up to $200. According to the disclosures, nearly $9 million in donations came from such donors, while just over $4 million were from large donors. The rest of the fund came via other forms of contributions.”

“The small donations difference is particularly upsetting to the DNC as the party long had a competitive edge due to the massive fundraising tool ActBlue, while Republicans, who don’t such comparable technology, have been worried in the past about not connecting with the grassroots donors.”

The massive fundraising advantage for the RNC will undoubtedly prove useful in the upcoming 2020 elections, as Republicans attempt to hold on to the White House and take back the House.
