RNC Raises $19 Million, Paying Down Debt

Monday, 18 Jul 2011 11:33 AM

WASHINGTON — The Republican National Committee raised $19 million in the past three months but is still $17.5 million in debt.

The committee said Monday that it had raised $36.6 million this year, including $19 million in the second quarter, and had $7.3 million in the bank. RNC chairman Reince Priebus started his term in January with almost $25 million in red ink and has paid down $6.7 million.

The RNC's goal is to build up a fund to give to the party's eventual presidential nominee who will face President Barack Obama and his deep-pocketed re-election campaign.

The Democratic National Committee raised $38 million in the same April-to-June fundraising period. The DNC has $21.4 million in the bank.
