President Trump Dominates All Democrat Candidates In 1Q Fundraising
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump's re-election campaign is set to report that it raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, edging out his top two Democratic rivals combined, according to figures it provided to The Associated Press.
The haul brings the campaign’s cash on hand to $40.8 million, an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign.
The Trump campaign said nearly 99% of its donations were of $200 or less, with an average donation of $34.26.
Trump's fundraising ability was matched by the Republican National Committee, which brought in $45.8 million in the first quarter – its best non-election year total. Combined, the pro-Trump effort is reporting $82 million in the bank, with $40.8 million belonging to the campaign alone.
