America First, the primary pro-Trump outside organization, raised $30 million in 2017, according to a source familiar with the group’s finances and an FEC report shown to Axios before it is filed tonight. 

Why it matters: $30 million is an impressive total, ahead of the $26 million Organizing for Action, the pro-Obama group, raised in its first year. America First's goal for 2018 is far more ambitious: $100 million.
