RNC Statement on FEC Filing
WASHINGTON – Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced the RNC raised $6.8 million in August 2013, bringing the committee’s cash on hand total to $12.5 million. As the RNC implements an unprecedented field operation to benefit Republicans up and down the ballot, strong encouragement from all levels of donors continues to bring fresh momentum to the Party.
“The RNC is engaging with voters in the field earlier than ever and working to hold Democrats up and down the ballot accountable for their misguided agenda,” said Chairman Priebus. “We already have more staff on the ground than in headquarters and are continuing to build out our data and digital teams. It’s imperative that we keep building a permanent, nationwide campaign to provide our candidates with the necessary tools and resources to achieve success.
“As we work toward our goal of growing our party and earning voters’ trust, we are extremely grateful for the support of grassroots and major donors alike. We’re doing things that have never been done before, and there’s enthusiasm across the country for charting a path to victory in 2013, 2014, 2016, and beyond.”
