The Republican National Committee (RNC) has reportedly raised more than $100 million for the first nine months of 2017, marking its largest fundraising haul over the first three quarters of a non-election year.
An RNC official said in a statement to McClatchy that the total shows that "Americans of all backgrounds" approve of the job being done by President Trump in his first year in the White House.
“This month’s numbers show once again that Americans of all backgrounds approve of the direction our country is headed under Republican leadership,” RNC Finance Chairman Steve Wynn said. “We are grateful to our generous donors who allow us to continue to expand our Republican majorities.”
The party raised $10.4 million in September, bringing its total to $104.4 million for the first three quarters of 2017. Those numbers are in sharp contrast to numbers released by Democrats, who had raised just $46.3 million by the end of August. The DNC has yet to release its September fundraising numbers.
