THE GOP TREA­SURE CHEST

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Money talks. Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee Chair­woman Ronna Rom­ney McDaniel re­veals that the com­mit­tee raised a record-break­ing $13.5 mil­lion in June, bring­ing the com­mit­tee’s grand to­tal to $75.4 mil­lion for the year — an amount ac­cu­mu­lat­ing de­spite polls sug­gest­ing the GOP had no fan base any­more, which is not ac­cu­rate.

“Our un­par­al­leled fundrais­ing suc­cess is due to our loyal net­work of grass-roots donors all across Amer­ica who sup­port Pres­i­dent Trump and our Repub­li­can agenda,” says Mrs. McDaniel, who adds that the funds will help “pro­mote con­ser­va­tive val­ues” and “elect more Repub­li­cans.”

Things are not so plen­ti­ful for the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee at the mo­ment. The or­ga­ni­za­tion raised $5.5 mil­lion in June, and now has $38.1 mil­lion in its cof­fers.
