Republicna Party | Outspends Democrats May In Retake U.S. Congress
The information submitted Sunday to the Federal Electoral Committee revealed that the National Republican Committee had raised 11.1 million U.S. dollars in June, only slightly less than 12.1 million U.S. dollars raised by the National Democratic Committee.
The Republican National Committee spent nearly $ 23 million during the month. It is more than doubling its income and referred $ 10 million to party committees. It assists candidates in preparation for the party’s congressional primary elections in 2018.
The Democratic National Committee, on the other hand, spent nearly $9 million, including $200,000 on Facebook (FB.O) for online fundraising. Therefore small donors, who account for a significant portion of campaign funds in the United States, are targeted by politicians through Facebook advertisements.
Democrats Losing Majority
In the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, Democrats hold narrow majorities and losing control of both in November 2022. Hence it would be a significant setback for Democratic President Joe Biden’s legislative agenda.
A spokesman for the Republican Party said the $ 175,900 spent at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla, intends to cover the cost of the resort, which will host a portion of a Republican donor retreat in April.
Both parties claimed that the amount of money they received was the highest ever for a May post-presidential election.
