President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee raised a reported $108 million during the quarter ending June 2019, a combined total roughly $3 million higher than was announced a week ago.
Candidates for president in 2020 are required to file second-quarter fundraising figures with the Federal Election Commission by Monday evening, June 15, at midnight.
The updated figures include contributions raised by Trump campaign entitles, reported to be $56.7 million, and the RNC, which reportedly raised $51.3 million.
The total of $108 million is expected to exceed the total fundraising of all Democratic candidates combined during the second quarter. President Trump also shattered single-day fundraising records on June 10, when his campaign reportedly raised $24.8 million within just 24 hours after the president officially announced his candidacy for re-election in 2020 at a rally in Orlando, Florida.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, in a statement, released Monday, July 15, said that funds will be used to support greater efforts at the grassroots level for all 2020 Republican candidates. “Yet another record-shattering fundraising haul gives us a major advantage over the crowded field of Democrats as the RNC continues investing in our world-class field program and growing our incredible grassroots army,” said McDaniel.
The Trump campaign has reported receiving more than 957,000 donations between April and June 2019.
