RNC Statement on FEC Filing
WASHINGTON – Today, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced the RNC raised $7.2 million in April 2013, the first month after the release of the Growth and Opportunity report, bringing the committee’s cash on hand total to $9.8 million. As the party implements an unprecedented off-year field operation, the support from all levels of donors continues to be strong. The RNC had more active donors at the end of April 2013 than at the end of April 2011, and the committee garnered 24 percent more first time donors in the first four months of 2013 than during the same period of 2011.
“Our number one priority at the RNC is taking our message of growth and opportunity to all voters in all states. Our donors are making that possible with their exceptionally strong support,” said Chairman Priebus. “Grassroots and major donors alike recognize the need for a comprehensive field operation that engages with all communities and the importance of building out our data, digital, and technology teams. I remain committed to maximizing the impact of every dollar as we make these long-term investments for the future.”
