The RNC Raised a Record-Breaking Amount of Cash in February

The Republican National Committee (RNC) had another record-breaking fundraising month in February, raising $12.8 million, which is the most the organization has ever raised in a February of a non-presidential election year.

The RNC has raised over $157 million for the 2018 election cycle and has $42.2 million cash-on-hand with no debt.

In February of 2014, the RNC had just $10 million cash on hand heading into the midterm elections.

That means that the RNC war chest has 4 times the cash on hand heading into the midterms as they did ahead of the 2014 midterms.

The RNC is investing this money into creating what it calls the largest and most well prepared field staffs in American political history.

NBC News reported:

“The RNC will add an additional 170 permanent staffers to its field program by the end of March, more than doubling the number already in the field to over 300. And the party expects to add 200 more before the start of the summer.”

“Thanks to the unwavering support of President Trump’s pro-growth agenda, the RNC continues to work with President Trump and Congressional Republicans ahead of the 2018 midterm elections,” RNC Chairwoman McDaniel said about the strong fundraising numbers.

“The RNC’s ongoing investments in a permanent ground game and data operation will help our party win elections and keep Republican majorities as President Trump fulfills promises made to the American people,” she said.

By comparison, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has struggled to keep pace with the RNC when it comes to fundraising under DNC Chair Tom Perez’s leadership.
