Trump campaign, RNC say they raised record-breaking $131 million in June
President Trump's re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee announced on Wednesday they collectively raised $131 million in June.
Why it matters: The president's biggest re-election cash haul comes as several polls have shown former Vice President Joe Biden leading in battleground states, and as Republican satisfaction with the state of the country declines.
- The campaign says its June haul is more than it raised with the RNC in any single month in 2016.
By the numbers: The campaign says it has over $295 million in cash on hand and has raised $111 million more than did in the first quarter of 2020, totaling $266 million.
- The RNC noted it hired 300 extra field staffers and has roughly 1,100 campaign workers operating in states targeted by the campaign.
- The campaign said it took in $14 million with the RNC through online fundraising on the president’s birthday.
What they're saying: “The Trump campaign’s monumental June fundraising haul proves that people are voting with their wallets and that enthusiasm behind President Trump’s re-election is only growing,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.
