September 20, 2018

The Republican National Committee announced Thursday that it had another record-breaking fundraising month in August, pulling in $16 million and bringing their total fundraising haul for the 2018 midterm cycle to more than $250 million.

“Enthusiasm for President Trump and his successful agenda is fueling our record-breaking fundraising and energizing our grassroots supporters,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

“With less than 50 days until the midterm elections we have built the largest ground game ever, and we are ready to defy history on November 6,” she said.

The RNC started the month with nearly $42 million left in the bank.
