RNC Statement on FEC Filing
WASHINGTON – Today, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced the RNC raised $5.9 million in July 2013. The committee’s cash on hand totals $12.3 million.
The continued support from donors at all levels has enabled the RNC to launch an unprecedented community-based field operation. The RNC already has more staff on the ground than in headquarters, which is unheard of in an off-year. Meanwhile, the RNC is developing an entirely new data and digital operation, under the leadership of Chief Technology Officer Andy Barkett and Chief Digital Officer Chuck DeFeo, which will empower candidates and activists at all levels.
“As we saw at our Summer Meeting in Boston, there’s great energy in the Republican Party, and we stand united behind the cause of building a permanent, nationwide campaign,” said Chairman Priebus. “With the support of our donors and investors, we’re making it happen.
“By making these investments now, we will ensure our party is more competitive than ever in 2014, 2016 and beyond. I’m proud of the work we’re doing on the ground and in communities. And I’m confident that we’ll be able to leapfrog the Democrats in our data capabilities.”
