Impeachment Backlash Fuels Record GOP Fundraising, Now $61 Million: Report

Republicans in October have been able to haul in $25 million in fundraising as House Democrats lead an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, according to a report.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) told the Washington Examiner that the $25.3 million raised in October is nearly triple what was raised in October 2017, and it is the most money on hand since 2012.

When the Trump reelection campaign is included, nearly $400 million has been raised.

The Examiner noted that the RNC has $61 million to play with after the latest round of donations in October. The Democratic National Committee was $7 million in debt in October, according to the report.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel credited support for Trump and anger by many Republicans at the impeachment inquiry.

“While Democrats are focused on their sham impeachment charade, Republicans had another record-breaking fundraising month in October—the best off-cycle October in our partys history,” said McDaniel. “When you look beyond the Beltway, its clear that the American people are sick and tired of the Democrats baseless investigations. In 2020, voters will choose results over the Democrats polarizing political rhetoric, and the RNC is in the strongest position possible to reelect President Trump and Republicans up-and-down the ballot,” she added.

Last week, Trumps reelection campaign announced that $3.1 million was raised during the first public impeachment hearing.

“One of our best fundraising days ever… again!” Trumps campaign manager, Brad Parscale, wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “Dems just dont get it. They are filling our bank and improving our turnout every day!”
