Republican National Committee officials said Tuesday that Democratic impeachment efforts against President Donald Trump designed to chip away at his support has backfired, as evidenced by record fundraising so far this year.
In fact, RNC officials said, according to their records, 1 million new small electronic donors have begun contributing to the president’s reelection campaign in recent weeks, during which time the impeachment process was playing out in the Democrat-controlled House and GOP-controlled Senate.
“The more Democrats smear President Trump, the more enthusiasm we see for him and his many accomplishments,” said RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel. “We already have 500,000 volunteers trained and activated, and this record-breaking support is helping us grow our grassroots army even more.”
Since the beginning of 2019, the campaign has raised over $525 million, officials said, according to the Washington Times.
Since the Democratic impeachment push began Sept. 24, the campaign also gained over 1 million new digital and direct mail donors, the paper said, citing RNC data.
The RNC raised $60.6 million in January alone, and says it now has $200 million in the bank as the 2020 campaign season begins to heat up.
