Hawley becomes GOP cash cow despite Jan. 6 blowback

What’s new: Digital fundraising appeals sent by the National Republican Senatorial Committee under Hawley’s name raised more money in February than those of any other senator except NRSC Chairman Rick Scott.

The NRSC has a Hawley-branded page on the fundraising platform WinRed, asking donors to “help end cancel culture and take back the Senate majority!” It also sent at least two fundraising emails last month under Hawley’s name…

From Jan. 1 through March 5, Hawley’s campaign brought in more than $1.5 million from nearly 28,000 donors, the vast majority of whom had never given to him before.

That’s more than 12 times what Hawley raised during the first quarter of 2020, and more than 34 times what he brought in during the first quarter of 2019 — and there’s still more than three weeks left in the current quarter.
