Trump and RNC Raise $105 Million in Q2 of 2019

President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee reported raising a combined $105 million in the second quarter of 2019, an astonishing figure that will give the incumbent president a massive advantage heading into his 2020 reelection campaign.

The groups have a combined $100 million cash on hand, per a New York Times report, and the money will go into TV and digital ads, get out the vote operations, data, and infrastructure.

Per the Times, the Trump campaign and related committees raised $54 million in April, May, and June, while the RNC raised $51 million.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called the figure “a massive fund-raising success,” which he credits to enthusiasm for Trump’s record.

Trump’s impressive fundraising abilities will undoubtedly give him an advantage over his eventual Democratic opponent. While two dozen Democrats attack one another, both verbally and financially, Trump will be able to keep building his war chest and reaching out to voters.

Mr. Trump’s fund-raising haul is a testament to the more professional operation that his campaign has been running, primarily out of Arlington, Va. In 2016, Mr. Trump poured millions of dollars of his own money into his campaign. But he also raised a considerable amount from small donors online.

The president is also expected to benefit from the GOP’s new online fundraising program, WinRed, which should allow Republican donors to more easily give to Republican candidates, including Trump.

The only other candidate to have announced his second quarter fundraising numbers is South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-IN), who for a candidate that’s never run state-wide let alone nationally, raised an impressive $24.8 million in the second quarter. That figure bested Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who raised the most among Democrats in Q1 with $18 million.

Perhaps most notably, Trump’s second quarter fundraising number bested President Barack Obama’s 2011 combined effort with the Democratic National Committee. That year, which parallel’s Trump’s re-elect, Obama raised $47 million in Q2, while the DNC raised $38 million.
