WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) – The Republican National Committee recently announced that it raised $8.4 million in July.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus made the announcement on Aug. 20.
“With 76 days until Election Day, the RNC is in a strong financial position to continue giving our candidates the support they need to win in November,” Priebus said.
“As always, I want to thank all of our donors and investors—including first-time donors and long-time supporters—for putting their trust in the RNC. We’re spending every dollar carefully to ensure maximum impact. So far this year, we’ve invested over $49 million toward helping our candidates win, and we expect to surpass $90 million.”
So far in the 2014 election cycle, the RNC has raised a total of $140.3 million and has $13.9 million cash on hand.
“This cycle, we began making long-term investments in our party infrastructure. That included overhauling our data, digital, and technology operation and deploying community-based staff to engage with voters full-time where they live, work, and worship,” Priebus said.
“We’ve seen this work pay dividends already, and with continued work and investment, we expect a Republican victory in November. The Obama-Reid agenda has made life harder for Americans, and Republicans up and down the ballot offer a clear alternative. Republicans will fight for jobs, affordable energy, better healthcare, improved schools, and personal freedom.”
