The Republican National Committee is raking in donations at record levels as GOP poll numbers continue to soar; raising over twice as much money as the DNC heading into the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.
The RNC announced Wednesday morning that it raised over $12 million in January alone and nearly $150 million in the overall “2018 election cycle.” Those figures offer a stark comparison to the $66 million raised by the Democratic National Committee heading into the hotly-contested midterms.
Making things even worse for the Democratic Party is its high-levels of spending. The DNC forked out over $71 million ahead of this year’s election; leaving the organization nearly $6 million in debt.
“As we head into the 2018 midterm elections, the Republican Party continues to break fundraising records,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel.
“We are working hand-in-hand with Republicans in Congress and President Trump to enact a pro-growth agenda on behalf of the American people. In doing so, we will continue to invest in our ground game, data operations, technology and Party infrastructure to win elections in 2018 and beyond,” she added.
