WinRed, the online Republican fundraising platform designed to counter Democrats' ActBlue, has raised $450 million since launching a year ago today.

Why it matters: WinRed takes an ecumenical approach, sweeping in everyone from the Trump campaign to congressional leaders to GOP renegades.

By the numbers:

  • 850 campaigns currently raise money through the platform.
  • 100% of state Republican parties and 85% of House and Senate members use WinRed.
  • Average donation: $38.
  • 370,000 donors were converted to volunteers.
  • The 24-hour record: $14 million on June 14, President Trump's birthday.

WinRed President Gerrit Lansing told me: "Everywhere around us, the pace of change is accelerating. And very few people are prepared for the amount of change coming to politics. WinRed is a ... platform designed for this new era."

Trump says he'll spend "whatever it takes" of his own money to win

President Trump told reporters on Tuesday that he'll spend "whatever it takes" of his own money if necessary to win in November, stressing that it's "the most important election in the history of our country."

Why it matters: The comments come after reports that Trump's campaign is having real money concerns — an unusual position for an incumbent that has worried GOP operatives. The campaign has yet to release its August fundraising, but Joe Biden and the Democrats say they raised a record-breaking $364.5 million last month.
