Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) outraised President Trump and the Republican National Committee (RNC) by $10 million in the month of June, marking the second consecutive month the former vice president has outperformed Trump’s campaign.
Former President Obama joined his former vice president Joe Biden in a virtual fundraiser Tuesday evening, promising that “help is on the way” and urging supporters not to be “complacent or smug” declaring that “whatever you’ve done so far is not enough.”
President Trump’s re-election efforts slightly outraised the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden for the month of April by about $1 million, according to both campaign fundraising reporting statements released Monday.
First lady Melania Trump has cancelled a fundraiser scheduled for next week in California.
President Trump is getting a glamorous boost to his 2020 reelection campaign with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump entering the political spotlight.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has emerged as the top fundraiser powerhouse of her party, but the Democratic socialist is refusing to pay her dues to the House’s Democratic campaign committee, angering her fellow Democrat colleagues. “It is pretty nuts, $250,000 for a freshman Democrat,” Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview outside the Capitol Friday. “I am not paying D-trip dues (nickname for Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) because I don’t agree with the policy around blacklisting groups that help progressive candidates.”
I give quite a bit to fellow Dems – we’ve fundraised over $300,000 for others (more than my “dues”), w/ over 50% going to swing seats.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 10, 2020
DCCC made clear that they will blacklist any org that helps progressive candidates like me. I can choose not to fund that kind of exclusion. https://t.co/qqwdwPAqek
