Republicans vastly outpace Democrats in fundraising

0

The Democratic National Committee raised $5.5 million in June, less than half the $13.5 million racked up by the Republican Party. With a reported $44.7 million, RNC has nearly six times as much cash on hand as the Democrats, who only reported $7.5 million on hand, according to the latest election reports.

The Democrats’ poor fundraising numbers are the latest in a string of weak performances by the party. The DNC has raised $38.1 million in the first six months of 2017 compared to the Republican National Committee’s $75.4 million.

The RNC has nearly six times as much cash on hand as of late June. The DNC reported $7.5 million in the bank and the RNC reported $44.7 million.

The DNC raised nearly $4.3 million in May, its worst May since 2003 and after a bleak fundraising effort in April.
