DNC Fundraising Numbers Far Less Than GOP in July
The Democratic National Committee raised $7.75 million in July and ended the month with $9 million in the bank, far behind its GOP counterpart, its latest filing with the Federal Election Commission shows.
The Republican National Committee earlier reported raising $20.8 million, and has $46.6 million cash on hand. The party holding the White House usually has an advantage raising money, especially when the opposition has a contested primary contest. The DNC has raised $51.6 million so far in 2019, compared to $117.9 million for the GOP.
The DNC’s July fundraising included $2.7 million from small-dollar donors, those giving $200 or less. It spent $7.9 million, and reported debts of $5.6 million, its filing shows.
