RNC outraises DNC in record-breaking November
BY BRETT SAMUELS - 12/20/17

The Republican National Committee announced Wednesday it raised $8.2 million in November, outraising the Democratic National Committee by $2.5 million.

The RNC’s November haul brings its 2017 fundraising total to $121.4 million. It is also the most the national campaign committee has ever raised in the November of a non-election year, according to the RNC.

The DNC, meanwhile, raised $5.7 million in November and has raised roughly $62 million so far in 2017, according to fillings with the Federal Election Commission.

The DNC remained well behind Republican fundraising despite significant electoral victories last month in Virginia and New Jersey, although their fundraising totals were up month-over-month.
The disparity builds on October fundraising totals, when the RNC hauled in $9.2 million, compared to the DNC's $3.9 million.

While the DNC's fundraising has been sluggish, the RNC has seen a boost in fundraising since President Trump took office.

The RNC was scrutinized earlier this month when it reinstated its support for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Moore, who lost his Dec. 12 special election to Democrat Doug Jones, was facing allegations of sexual misconduct, including that he molested a 14-year-old when he was 32.

The RNC initially rescinded its support in November, but backed Moore again following Trump’s endorsement of the candidate.

Wednesday's announcement comes on the heels of Republicans passing sweeping tax-reform legislation. The bill passed without a single Democratic vote, and will be sent to Trump for his signature.

The legislation slashes the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, repeals ObamaCare’s mandate requiring most individuals to buy insurance and opens up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling.

DNC Takes Out $1.7 Million Loan, Bringing Total Debt Above $6 Million
freebeacon ^ | March 21, 2018 | Paul Crookston

Records show the Democratic National Committee had to take out another loan in February, as the 2018 midterm elections loom.

The national arm of the Democratic Party took out a $1.7 million loan in February, raising the national party’s total debt above $6 million, the Daily Caller reported.

This comes as the DNC has consistently failed to keep up with its Republican counterpart's fundraising. The RNC brought in $12.8 million in February while the DNC only raised $6.9 million.

The DNC now has just over $10 million on hand compared to the $42 million the RNC has on hand. Still, RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel expressed caution, telling Politico Wednesday that midterm elections tend to be "very difficult for a sitting president."

"Their first midterm, [parties in the White House] usually lose seats," McDaniel said. "We understand that, and so we’ve been preparing for that all year."

She said Trump has been engaged in the party’s strategy going into the 2018 elections.

"Most of our conversations are related to the midterms," she said. "In some cases, we’ll go through numbers. We take our data to the White House. He dials in. He wants to know. He’s very focused on that. We’ll talk about specific candidates, where we think that race will go, and what he can be doing to help."

The DNC is seeking to turn the page after the 2016 elections, when its financial woes led to taking out a loan from Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Clinton’s influence over the party became the subject of controversy after it came out that the DNC was working to help her in the presidential primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).

The DNC fundraising has improved since 2016–although it still lags behind the RNC’s–and DNC Chairman Tom Perez has insisted that things are going well. That insistence, however, has sometimes been misdirected, as was the case when he ran afoul of the Washington Post Fact-Checker earlier this month. Perez had said the party raised a record amount of cash in January of this year even though there were several instances in recent years when it raised more in January.

Perez said Republicans lead in fundraising because "they’ve got a lot more rich donors," but the RNC has outraised the DNC in small donations in recent years.

This week in politics: RNC breaks another record, builds on fundraising advantage
By CAITLIN CONANT CBS NEWS August 20, 2018
 
The Republican National Committee raised $14.2 million in July -- the most it has ever raised in that month in a non-presidential year -- bringing its total haul for the cycle to $227.2 million. Despite historic odds and voter enthusiasm favoring Democrats, the RNC is finding record-setting support among its donors, according to numbers shared first with CBS News. The RNC raised more in July of this year than it did in 2010 and 2014 combined.

"We've used our unprecedented grassroots support to build the biggest field program we've ever had to defend our House and Senate majorities," RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to CBS News. "History might be against us, but we're making sure every voter knows we're the party of results. All the Democrats have is resistance."

After transferring 8 million dollars split evenly between the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in July, the RNC started August with $41.9 million cash-on-hand and no debt. 

According to its last FEC report at the end of June, the RNC had more than five times as much in the bank as the Democratic National Committee.

Interesting.

Apparently the "average Joe" doesn't approve of the whacko left.
