House Republicans blew away their Democrat counterparts in the second quarter of 2021, shattering fundraising records to pull in an astounding $45.4 million from April through June of this year.
The record numbers, announced Wednesday morning by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), represent the most successful fundraising quarter the House GOP campaign arm has ever had in its history.
“We will take back the majority next fall and voters are doing everything they can to help us accomplish that goal,” NRCC chairman Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News ahead of its public release. “Our record-breaking fundraising total wouldn’t have been possible without the leadership of Leader Kevin McCarthy, Whip Steve Scalise, our Republican conference, and the tens of thousands of generous donors who have contributed to our mission. Every vulnerable House Democrat should be eyeing the exits because if they choose to run, they will lose.”
The GOP numbers come out a week after Democrats announced an eye-popping $36.5 million of their own raised by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) this past quarter. While not an unimpressive haul—and a record-setter for Democrats in their own right— the Democrat numbers fell well short, in fact nearly $10 million short, of the GOP cash haul.
