THE REPUBLICAN TREASURE CHEST
The aforementioned Republican National Committee raised a record-setting $10.8 million in May, a new post-presidential record. Since the beginning of 2017, the organization has raised $61.9 million. Finance Chairman Steve Wynn says the donations coming in are both “unprecedented” an “unwavering.”
And some applause for frugality: the committee also has zero debt, he says.
Things are not so jubilant elsewhere, however. The Democratic National Committee raised $4.3 million in May, compared to $12.3 million in May 2016, $19.9 million in May 2012.
