Republican Fundraising Soars Amid Supreme Court Battle

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) fundraising has skyrocketed during Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, according to a Tuesday Politico report.

According to a Politico report, on September 29, two days after Kavanaugh’s latest hearing, and one day after Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) convinced fellow Republicans to back an FBI investigation of Kavanaugh, the NRCC’s fundraising skyrocketed.

On September 29, the NRCC sent out a text, requesting donations, which read, “Hi, it’s URGENT! We need 324 more conservatives to show their support for Trump & his majority before TONIGHT. Will you take a stand?”

In response to the text, the number of donations the NRCC received increased by 175 percent, the amount of money raised grew by 194 percent, the average gift grew by 111 percent, and the average raised off of the text grew by 226 percent.
