Is there any stopping the Donald Trump/RNC campaign’s fundraising? Perhaps not, but the sudden economic stall slowed it up considerably. Nonetheless, the combined fundraising set a new record for the quarter, according to the Associated Press and both organizations.
The real question is whether the coronavirus lockdown will turn into a lockout for Joe Biden:
President Donald Trump’s record-setting fundraising pace slowed slightly amid the coronavirus outbreak but remained strong as he maintains a massive cash advantage over Democrats.
The Trump reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised more than $212 million in the first quarter of 2020, according to figures first obtained by The Associated Press, bringing their total to more than $677 million since 2017. Their haul for March, even as the nation’s economy began grinding to a halt to slow the pandemic, was more than $63 million.
That represented a slowing from the more than $86 million raised in February but nonetheless was Trump’s second-best month ever, and it kept his campaign on pace to maintain its massive fundraising advantage over Democrats.
