President Donald Trump’s campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and authorized joint fundraising committees raised $86 million in February, after reeling in nearly $61 million in January.
February was the best month for digital fundraising since 2016, The Hill reported, citing RNC’s announcement released on Monday, March 2.
The president and his Republican Party have raised more than $607 million since 2019 and now have $225 million cash on hand, RNC said.
“Our record-breaking fundraising success month after month speaks to the incredible enthusiasm we are seeing for President Trump, and is fueling the greatest ground operation and grass-roots army in history,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said.
In a comparison to the top Democratic presidential candidates, President Trump brought in an amount of money that was as twice the sum of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has led the Democratic pack in fundraising.
Sanders raised more than $46 million in February, the best single month in his campaign, after he won in two early states and surged to the Democratic front-runner.
Several Democratic presidential candidates also announced that February was their best fundraising month so far.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) hauled in more than $29.3 million in February, her campaign’s best month.
Former Vice President Joe Biden had his best fundraising day during the South Carolina primary, bringing in $5 million as he won his first state.
