Democrats did their best to cancel Senator Josh Hawley in the weeks after the protest-turned-riot at the Capitol in January. Hawley was the first Republican senator to announce he would object to some state’s electoral votes for Joe Biden, because of this and his support of President Trump the left put a target on his back. However, it seems their efforts to cancel the Missouri senator may have actually worked in his favor as he ended up bringing in a record-breaking amount of donations not only for his campaign but for the Republican Party as well.

The Daily Wire reports:

“Corporate donors and establishment Republicans recoiled at the Jan. 6 siege on the Capitol that followed efforts by Hawley and others to block President Biden’s Electoral College victory. But fundraising numbers show the GOP grassroots is still firmly in Hawley’s camp,” the outlet said Monday.

Hawley is the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s best fundraiser, next to the group’s president, making him an indispensable resource for the group, which bankrolls GOP senate campaigns across the country. Overall, the NRSC pulled in more than $8 million, easily beating the Democrat senate fundraising arm, per Reuters.

On his own, Hawley pulled in $1.5 million for his campaign.

Axios notes that that is far and away Hawley’s best haul: “That’s more than 12 times what Hawley raised during the first quarter of 2020, and more than 34 times what he brought in during the first quarter of 2019 — and there’s still more than three weeks left in the current quarter.”

Democrats will be disappointed to learn their attempts to shame corporation out of contributing to Republican candidates didn’t work
