WASHINGTON (AP) – Pro-Trump groups raised more than $60 million in January and have more than $200 million on hand for this year’s general election.
The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign provided The Associated Press with the fundraising total for the first month of the election year, which included most of the Senate’s impeachment trial.
The two groups and two joint-fundraising committees have raised more than $525 million since 2019, shattering fundraising records.
President Donald Trump’s team has aimed to bring in $1 billion to support his reelection effort. Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale says, “This campaign is going to be unstoppable in 2020.”
In early January, the Bernie Sanders camp announced Thursday that his campaign had raised an impressive $34.5 million in the final three months of last year.
Biden trailed the Vermont senator in the money race but topped his third quarter fundraising total of $15.2 million by nearly 50%..
The announcements came a day after the strong $24.7 million that Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced raising from October through December.
Elizabeth Warren has relied heavily on small donations coming primarily online. Her campaign raised $24.6 million in the third quarter or 2019.
