RNC Seeking to Raise at Least $60M to Fund Trump Legal Challenges: Sources

RNC Seeking to Raise at Least $60M to Fund Trump Legal Challenges: Sources
(Dreamstime)

The Republican National Committee has reached out donors as it seeks to raise at least $60 million to fund legal challenges brought by President Donald Trump over the results of the U.S. presidential election, two sources familiar with the matter said.

The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in several states following the Nov. 3 election pitting the president against Democrat Joe Biden.

“They want $60 million,” said a Republican donor who received solicitations from the RNC.

On Thursday, Newsmax reported that Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said he'd pledge $500,000 to Trump's legal fund.

"I'm here tonight to stand with President Trump," Graham told Fox News' "Hannity." "He stood with me. He's the reason we're going to have a Senate majority. My race was overwhelming. He helped Senate Republicans, we're going to pick up House seats, because of the campaign that President Trump won.

"I'm going to donate $500,000 tonight to President Trump's defense legal fund."

(Though it appears the Democrats' hopes for a Senate majority have dramatically deteriorated, the outcome of that potential shift may hinge on two Senate runoff races in Georgia in January.)

Graham went on to say: "Give to DonaldJTrump.com, so we will have the resources to fight. The allegations of wrongdoing are earth shattering. It makes the Carter Page warrant application look on the up and up."
