WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced today that the RNC raised $8.7 million in October 2015, breaking yet another presidential off-year fundraising record. The RNC has raised over $89 million this cycle and currently has over $20 million in cash on hand.
“With just under a year until Election Day 2016 we’re seeing great enthusiasm for the GOP,” Chairman Priebus said.
“We’re hard at work building a data and field infrastructure that will defeat Hillary Clinton, and thousands of enthusiastic voters from across the country have been excited to chip in for that effort. Our team is hard at work training, recruiting, and registering volunteers and voters in every community and every battleground state. The RNC is the only organization on either side of the aisle currently running a full-scale General Election field operation, and we’re able to do so thanks to the thousands of supporters who continue to give us a decisive advantage over the Democrat National Committee in preparing to win.”
