GOP Sees Huge Surge in Small Donor Numbers

Monday, 19 Oct 2009 04:49 PM

The Republican National Committee (RNC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) are seeing a huge increase in the number of small-dollar donors making contributions in recent months, according to The Hill.

Citing various reports and financial data, the Hill reported that the RNC raised $8.74 million in September, ending the month with $18.9 million in the bank. The committee has not carried any debt this year.

The NRCC raised $3.4 million, spending all but $100,000 and ending the quarter with $4.3 million in the bank. The NRCC still has $2 million in obligations to other vendors.

Democrats have not yet released their fund raising figures. But the Democratic National Committee said it would report raising just over $7 million during the month of September while retaining $14.7 million in the bank. The committee had $4.6 million in debt through the end of August, but numbers through the end of September had yet to be released.

The RNC’s surge was largely comprised of money from an average of 2,400 new donors per day last month. The average contribution was just $36, according to data to be filed Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission.

The NRCC attracted more than 12,000 new donors last month, the reports will show.
