RNC Raises $7.1 million in February, $95.6M raised for cycle
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced on March 20 that the RNC raised $7.1 million in February 2014 and that the committee’s cash on hand totals $10.0 million. The RNC has raised $95.6 million for the 2014 election cycle, thus far out-raising the DNC.
“Every day the RNC is strengthening our national, permanent ground game and connecting with new voters, and the strong support of our donors and investors makes that possible,” said Chairman Priebus. “I’m grateful to everyone who has contributed to our mission of growing the party and electing leaders who will listen to the concerns of all Americans.
“One year ago this week, I announced the steps we would take in response to the report of the Growth and Opportunity Project. Thanks to strong fundraising in this cycle, we’ve been able to deliver on that plan. We’ve made major investments in data, digital, and technology--and developed tools to give candidates and campaigns better access to our data. We’ve also built a bottom-up, nationwide field operation with a special focus on engaging with minority communities.
“We were able to use the tools and strategies we’ve developed to support the NRCC, the Florida GOP, and the David Jolly campaign in last week’s special election, which was a major win for Republicans. As we head to November, Democrats are right to be nervous. Our candidates will have the tools and the message to hold the House, take back the Senate, and make gains up and down the ballot.”
