The Republican National Committee raised a staggering $56 million in the third quarter of 2018 and $26.2 million in September alone; smashing the fundraising record set for a single month during a non-presidential midterm election.
According to the New York Post, the RNC’s record-setting haul is approximately 35% more than the Democrat National Committee, which took in over $40 million in the second quarter of 2018.
“The RNC brought in an extra $12 million as a result of 175,000 new online donors, the news outlet reported. RNC officials attributed the fundraising spike to the party’s network of 200,000 volunteers spread across 28 states,” writes the Post.
The strong filings also show President Trump has already taken in more than $100 million for his re-election campaign; a shocking 34 times increase over former President Barack Obama at the same time in office.

RNC BOSS: Democrats Care More About ELECTIONS than ‘DREAMERS’
The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee slammed liberal lawmakers for their total turn-around on DACA Friday; saying Democratic legislators care more about “winning elections” then they do about the 800,000 ‘Dreamers’ currently residing in the United States.
Ronna McDaniel was speaking with Fox News when she rejected the “absolute lie” that Democratic leadership “care about the DACA recipients,” adding they had multiple opportunities to strike a deal with the President but refused to cooperate with the Trump administration.
“Democrats don’t want to deal with the president because they want to use it as an issue going into the 2018 midterms and the president is right to point it out,” said McDaniel.
“It’s an absolute lie on behalf of Democrat leadership they care about the DACA recipients more than they care about this next election,” she added.
