President Trump’s 2020 campaign has raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, beating out his two top Democratic rivals combined.
The RNC also reported its best non-election year fundraising total of $40.8 million.
The average Trump donor gave $34.26 and nearly 99 percent of donors gave $200 or less.
The Trump campaign announced today that it has “approximately 21 times more cash on hand than the Obama campaign had at this point in the reelection cycle.”
Obama’s 2012 reelection fundraising totaled $720 million and the Trump campaign has set a goal of $1 billion for 2020.
The Epoch Times reports that “Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Kamala Harris led the Democratic field in campaign donations, raising $18.2 million and $12 million respectively in the first quarter.”
South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $7 million and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign raised more than $6 million.
Panic seems to be setting in for Democrats. Sen. Warren’s campaign sent an email to supporters this morning urging them to “take things up a notch.”
“Now that we’ve seen how much cash the GOP has stockpiled, we’ve got to take things up a notch,” the email states.
