The campaign raised over $143 million during the year and are well-positioned heading into 2020.
While some Democratic presidential candidates celebrate their quarter 4 fundraising hauls — particularly Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who led the Democratic field with an impressive $34.5 million last quarter — President Trump’s reelection campaign is reporting numbers that leave them all in the dust.
As reported by The Washington Times, Trump’s reelection campaign reported a stunning $46 million haul in the last quarter and says they’ve got nearly $103 million on hand. The Q4 total is “its best-ever haul,” the outlet notes.
“The quarterly amount is money raised by the Trump campaign alone and doesn’t include funds from the Republican National Committee or any authorized joint fundraising committees,” the Washington Times reports.
The huge fundraising haul, the campaign suggests, comes in part because of rather than despite the Democrats’ impeachment campaign.
