The Republican National Committee announced Friday the political organization set a fundraising record in December for a non-election year.
The RNC brought in $26.5 million in December, bringing the year’s fundraising total to $241.1 million.
The figure for December was $6 million more than the $20.6 million raised in November, which was the organization’s best November to date.
At the time, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel attributed the fundraising haul, in part, to the “Democrats’ baseless impeachment charade.”
The RNC, combined with the Trump campaign’s fundraising wings, raised nearly half a billion dollars, or $463.6, million last year, amid an impeachment battle that largely dominated the fall.
The organization reported having just shy of $200 million cash-on-hand combined.
“Americans are investing in a party and a president that are fighting for them,” McDaniel said, according to Fox News.
“They are tuning out the Democrats’ politically motivated impeachment charade and turning out for the president and his record of results,” she continued.
“On November 3rd, voters will choose to continue on this path of American greatness by re-electing President Trump and voting for Republicans up and down the ballot,” McDaniel added.
In December, RNC national spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington said, “We have an amazing grassroots army of volunteers, and that’s only skyrocketed since the impeachment charade.”
“We have thousands sign up to get involved off the sidelines. Every single month, we’ve broken records on fundraising — our joint fundraising with the Trump campaign,” she added, noting that the RNC has “never seen an off-year election like this.”
