GOP Campaign Donations Surge After Trump Verdict

Likewise the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) disclosed a $360,000 in contributions on the same day.

Will Reinert, the press secretary for NRCC credited this increase in donations to widespread public discontent. “The American people are unhappy with how the justice system was used against President Trump ” he remarked. “They’re showing their opposition by donating and expressing their disapproval of Joe Biden and House Democrats actions through a gesture now and will finalize their stance with votes come November.”
