RNC Raised $9.2 Million in October


The Republican National Committee had another strong month of fundraising in October, bringing in $9.2 million.

The RNC has now raised more than $113 million through October for the year so far, the Hill reported Monday.

Although the Democratic National Committee has not yet filed its monthly report for October, the RNC has a sizable fundraising advantage over the DNC. The RNC closed out October with $42.5 million in the bank, giving the party a more than six-fold advantage in cash-on-hand over the DNC.

Out of the $9.2 million in October fundraising money, $4.29 million came from contributions under $200, bringing this year's total so far in small-dollar donations to $48 million.

"This wide ranging small donor support is about one thing and one thing only," RNC finance chairman Steve Wynn said in a statement to the Hill. "The Republican Party stands for more jobs and keeping more of your paycheck. The jobs and the paycheck are what matter and that's what we are about. That's why we are getting the support and why we're going to continue to win."

The Hill noted that this messaging echoes the GOP’s line on tax reform, which is currently the party's top priority.
