President Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee took in $125 million during the third quarter of this year, breaking a presidential fundraising record.
Republicans and the Trump campaign have recently been fundraising off of impeachment efforts by House Democrats. The campaign announced last week that it would spend $8 million to air an ad on television and radio attacking Democrats over the impeachment inquiry and accusing them of trying to “steal” the upcoming election. The RNC additionally is spending $2 million attacking Democrats for supporting impeachment.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that the move by Democrats is helping galvanize voters to donate more to Trump and the RNC.
