RNC Chairman Optimistic About 2024 Fundraising Despite Democrats’ Early Lead

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Whatley expressed optimism about the party’s fundraising prospects for the 2024 election cycle despite the Democrats’ early lead. Whatley attributed the uptick in donations to former President Donald Trump becoming the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee.

“Every single day that President Trump is in court right now we’re making a million dollars in donations are coming in from all across the country because people realize that that ‘lawfare’ is being waged on them” Whatley told the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show on Tuesday. He added that over 90% of the RNC’s donations are coming in small-dollar increments.

The RNC and Trump campaign combined brought in $65.6 million in March and Whatley said they raised over $75 million in April. “We are absolutely on track to have the amount of money that we need to be able to get our message out to every American family and every American voter” he stated.

The GOP’s fundraising issues have been partially attributed to former RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. In February prior to McDaniel’s ouster Arizona RNC National Committeeman Tyler Bowyer told Just the News that adjusting for inflation “last year was the lowest year of fundraising in 30 years for the RNC.”
