On Wednesday evening, the Democratic National Committee quietly released their October fundraising numbers and for good reason—they were bad. Very bad.
With the fundraising numbers now out for both major political parties, it is easy to compare the numbers and see that donors have a preference for which party they want leading the country. (Hint: it is not the party which has been needlessly pushing a 3-year effort using federal government funding and resources to impeach the president.)
“The DNC reported less than $8.7 million cash on hand and over $7 million debt in an FEC report released Wednesday,” the Daily Caller’s William Davis reported on Wednesday evening.

“The DNC’s poor fundraising numbers come less than a year out from the 2020 presidential election, and at a time when the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the re-election campaign of President Donald Trump continue to blow past fundraising numbers,” the Daily Caller reports.
The Republican National Committee is fairing much, much better.
After hauling in a record-breaking $27 million in the month of September, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced the RNC raised $25.3 million in October—another record—the Washington Examiner reports.
These massive figures give the debt-free RNC more than $61.4 million cash on hand, totaling nearly $400 million in the Trump 2020 campaign effort.
The Washington Examiner adds:
“While Democrats are focused on their sham impeachment charade, Republicans had another record-breaking fundraising month in October — the best off-cycle October in our party’s history,” said McDaniel.
“When you look beyond the Beltway, it’s clear that the American people are sick and tired of the Democrats’ baseless investigations. In 2020, voters will choose results over the Democrats’ polarizing political rhetoric, and the RNC is in the strongest position possible to reelect President Trump and Republicans up-and-down the ballot,” she added.

“Among the reasons the RNC says they’ve been so successful are Trump’s campaign efforts and the Democrats’ aggressive attacks on Trump. The latter, said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, is inspiring Trump’s supporters to be generous in their giving,” the Daily Wire reports.
“We are investing millions on the airwaves and on the ground to hold House Democrats accountable, highlight their obstruction, and take back the House and re-elect President Trump in 2020,” McDaniel added.
Some of the fundraising discrepancy between the parties is due to the Democratic party not yet rallying behind a single candidate. As multiple candidates continue to compete for their party’s nomination, donors are backing their choice to win rather than the party as a whole.
