The Republican Party has nearly eight times as much cash-on-hand as the Democratic Party in the heat of the 2020 primary season. According to the latest Federal Election Commission (FEC) data released Thursday, covering Jan. 1 through Jan. 31, the Republican National Committee has $76 million cash-on-hand compared with the Democratic National Committee’s $9.9 million. “Record breaking support for this president and his policies continues to grow as we head full-force into this presidential election year,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to Fox News. “Across the country, Americans are choosing President Trump’s record of results over Democrats’ divided field of contenders with no vision for the country, and they are ready for four more years of the great American comeback he has started,” she added. A spokesperson for the DNC did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. Meanwhile, the latest FEC filings show that President Trump’s re-election campaign and joint-fundraising committees have $124 million cash-on-hand; while his campaign alone has $92.6 million cash-on-hand. As for the Democratic primary field, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has $16.8 million; former Vice President Joe Biden has $7.1 million; former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg has $6.6 million; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., has $2.86 million; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has $2.3 million; and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, has $2 million. Democratic candidates Tom Steyer and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who are self-funding their campaigns, have far more cash-on-hand. Thursday’s FEC filing showed Bloomberg having a whopping $55.1 million cash-on-hand; and Steyer with $17.8 million.
Wow.. That’s all ya really can say to that. Trump and the RNC are monetarily destroying the DNC and its cast of keystone cops running for the Democrat nominee for president. Of course anything can happen in the next 8 months or so. But.. At this rate, the DNC is getting utterly demolished. That’s why CNN, MSNBC, Joy Behar at “The View,” and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media are in full panic mode. The Dem presidential candidates are beating each other up right now and spending all of their money on that, while Trump is out doing rallies to sold out crowds in key swing states. The contrast is pretty stark.
The Republican National Committee took a shot at MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday, calling it the “leader of the pack for the worst case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.” “Once a respected forum for intelligent discourse, the program has turned into 3 hours of far-left hysteria, filled with more faux scandal and innuendo than a bad episode of Gossip Girl,” the email released by the RNC Wednesday said. The show, hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, refused Wednesday to discuss the controversy surrounding Kathy Griffin’s photo shoot involving a mock beheading of President Trump. However, the show did decide to discuss a misspelled tweet by Trump, something the RNC picked up on. “According to a rough review of this morning’s program, the crew spent the majority of the show discussing misspelled tweets, White House staffing plans, uncorroborated Russia stories, and the supposed horror of President Trump giving his cell phone number out,” the email by RNC Deputy Communications Director Michael Reed said. Reed notes that they spent “little to no time” on the lack of evidence of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia or on how leaks are hurting national security. “And, if you were tuning in to get a substantive update on health care or tax reform negotiations, good luck,” the email says. Reed also notes that Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) was on the program but not asked if he is still holding an event with Griffin in July. Scarborough later responded on Twitter, hailing it as proof that President Trump is “obsessed” with the show.
Hey Joe! Newsflash! We’re pretty sure the President doesn’t care about your so-called show. He’s made it VERY clear on numerous occasions that he DOES, however, watch “Fox and Friends” on the Fox News channel in the morning. So, while certain members of his staff (i.e. Press secretary, etc) MAY watch ALL news channels, including yours, I think it’s pretty safe to say that he isn’t watching your show at all. Besides, he’s said how much he dislikes MSNBC and all of it’s “fake news.” Pres. Trump is far too busy to care about your pathological hysteria, Joe. Get over yourself. Loser..
Republican Party chairman announces Cleveland as 2016 convention site
Smart choice! I was hoping it’d come here to Denver (another swing/battle ground state). But, Ohio is a very strategically sound choice. Excellent!
