Dems Post Big Fundraising Numbers, GOP’s Haul Is Even Bigger

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, whose duty is to get Democrats elected to the U.S. House, is breaking its own fundraising records.

The DCCC posted its best-ever second-quarter fundraising tally. During the second three-month stretch of 2021, the committee raised $36.5 million to defend its House majority next year.

The DCCC now has banked $44 million in cash.

“Our strong fundraising success shows American voters are rejecting Republican extremism and know just how critical a Democratic House Majority is to protecting our democracy and delivering for American families,” Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the DCCC chairman, said in a statement.

Yet there is only one problem.

The Republicans are raking in even more.

The National Republican Congressional Committee reported that it brought in $45.4 million during the second quarter of 2021.

That was a record amount for the NRCC in a year without a national election.

Nearly half of that – $20.1 million – came in during June, which was the highest GOP monthly total in a non-election year, according to the report.

The Republicans overall during the first half of the year have reaped $79.2 million, up 78 percent from 2019.

One reason for the GOP success: “Fundraising has also been bolstered by former President Donald Trump, whose name continues to dominate fundraising pleas for small-dollar contributions.”

Overall, the NRCC has $55 million in cash on hand.

In a statement, Rep. Tom Emmer, chairman of the NRCC, said, “We will take back the majority next fall and voters are doing everything they can to help us accomplish that goal.”

“Our record-breaking fundraising total wouldn’t have been possible without the leadership of Leader Kevin McCarthy, Whip Steve Scalise, our Republican conference, and the tens of thousands of generous donors who have contributed to our mission. Every vulnerable House Democrat should be eyeing the exits because if they choose to run, they will lose,” Emmer added.

Yahoo News, in its report on the GOP drive, pointed out donors don’t buy the Democrats’ Jan. 6 hyperbole.

“With these numbers, it is abundantly clear opposition to the certification of President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory by House Republicans, registered in votes held Jan. 6 during a joint session of Congress, has not hampered NRCC fundraising, nor that of top House GOP leaders,” Yahoo News reported.

“This strong fundraising performance comes despite the fact that some corporate political action committees have hesitated to give in light of that vote and the ransacking of the Capitol by grassroots supporters of former President Donald Trump.”
