RNC Raises $262.3 Million This Cycle


RNC Has Raised $262.3 Million This Cycle, Working With Trump Campaign To Fund Down-Ballot Races
WASHINGTON – Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced the Party has raised $262.3 million this cycle. The Party raised $39.4 million in September and currently has $56.6 million cash on hand.

“With our ground game fully funded, we will continue to raise and spend on additional resources that will put Donald Trump in the White House with Republican majorities in the House and Senate,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Our supporters are enthusiastic about Donald Trump, and as a result this was one of the best months in RNC history for small dollar fundraising. The RNC has worked tirelessly since 2013 to build the best ground game in politics, and with thousands of staffers and volunteers in the field right now, the amount we’ve raised this month will continue to help deliver Republican victories at every level.”

The RNC, with the encouragement of the Trump campaign, has also transferred $4.5 million to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and $1.85 million to the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) this cycle. The RNC transferred $3 million this cycle to the NRSC and $1.2 million to the NRCC through September, and also transferred an additional $1.5 million to the NRSC and over $600,000 to the NRCC in early October.

“The Trump campaign is happy to see resources being directed to the NRSC and NRCC in order to keep Republican majorities in the House and the Senate this cycle,” said Donald J. Trump for President CEO Steven Bannon. “Our commitment to making sure we will have a Republican Congress in place to work with a Trump Administration remains strong.”

While both the NRSC and NRCC were part of RNC Victory Fund allocations in 2012, this year they were not automatically designated as recipients of funds raised by the RNC and the Trump campaign JFCs (Joint Financial Committees).
