    We are told that President Trump has an issue of lack support for woman. I figured that one way to measure that is to look at where the donations are coming from and see how that compares to the Democrat front-runners. I looked at the fundraising demographics for Trump, Sanders, Biden, Warren and Mayor Pete from December 16, 2019 report found at Open Secrets. Trump has received 34.7% from women. But Bernie, Biden and Mayor Pete are not generating much more support. Bernie has received 39.7% from women. Biden 43.1% from women. Mayor Pete received 39.5% from women. Only Warren...

    Bernie Sanders announced Thursday that he raised more than $34.5 million in the final three months of last year, an impressive haul underscoring that a recent heart attack hasn’t slowed the Vermont senator’s fundraising prowess with the start of the Democratic presidential primaries looming. Sanders' campaign said that came from more than 1.8 million donations, including from 40,000 new donors on the final day of the year alone. His total exceeds the strong $24.7 million that Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced a day earlier that he'd raised during last year's fourth quarter. “Bernie Sanders is...
  • Top fundraiser for Pete Buttigieg offered a donor the chance to 'get on campaign's radar' in exchange for money

    Mayor Pete Buttigieg is under fire again for his campaign's fundraising strategy. A top fundraiser to Buttigieg's campaign, Washington consultant H.K. Park, told a potential donor in an email that they should give money to the campaign in order to get on its "radar," appearing to sell access to the candidate. "If you want to get on the campaign's radar now before he is flooded with donations after winning Iowa and New Hampshire, you can use the link below for donations," Park wrote to an unnamed donor. The donor, who spoke with Axios and requested anonymity, characterized Park's offer as...

    s Boston Marathon Fundraising Out of Control? ^ | December 3, 2019 | Sarah Lorge Butler
    Aaron Stevens will run the Boston Marathon for the sixth time in April, and his fifth as part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute team. For each of the past two years, he has raised $16,000 for the cancer center. The effort is personal. Stevens lost a cousin in her 30s to colon cancer, and his father survived grueling treatment for bladder cancer that included a nine-week stay in intensive care. He’s got his two-pronged fundraising strategy down pat—an email list of 500 people get monthly appeals from him, and he can count on at least 100 of those people to...

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” on Monday, Republican National Committee national spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington explained how fundraising and activism for Republicans are on the upswing in the wake of the House Democrats’ impeachment push against President Donald Trump.

    Though Allison Longest had a normal pregnancy, soon after she gave birth to her son, Zachary, on December 16, 2013, she and her husband noticed that something was wrong. “He wasn’t eating very well, and after looking into it, the doctors at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health discovered that he had a heart murmur,” the 39-year-old from Indianapolis told Runner’s World. “But it was minor, and no one was that worried about it.” Two weeks later, Zachary was brought in for a heart check-up on Christmas Eve. To the surprise of his parents, the doctors diagnosed him...

    Terry McAuliffe, the former governor of Virginia and a prolific fund-raiser, said that donors were “furious” about the jet spending and called the campaign’s overall money situation “very alarming.” Mr. McAuliffe’s wife recently invited donors to attend a fund-raiser for Mr. Biden at their home in early November. Mr. Schultz, when asked about the chartered travel, said that “whatever maximizes Joe Biden and voter interaction, the greater chance we have to win.” The campaign said Mr. Biden had flown commercial but declined to indicate when his last such flight was.

    A year ago, Secret Service Special Agent Rod Wellman never thought he’d be tapering for a 100K race. The distance was never something he thought would cross his path. He thought the same thing about lung cancer. Yet, on October 4, 2018, Wellman found himself at an urgent care center for a cough that hadn’t gone away after several weeks. Some scans and X-rays revealed the cause. “I’ve never been that sick before,” Wellman told Runner’s World. “I thought it was just a chest cold. Then, they told me I had stage 4 cancer in my lungs.” By the time...

    Joe Biden scoffed at his recent fundraising troubles in a soon-to-be-aired interview with 60 Minutes, claiming his campaign was on course to do “extremely well” — an opinion not shared by his own aides. The former vice president, who this week reversed his position on accepting help from super PACs, made the remarks when asked by CBS News’s Norah O’Donnell if he still considered himself the Democrat frontrunner. O’Donnell, particularly, noted that Biden had not only lost his polling advantage but had also fallen behind competitors like Sens. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in fundraising. “I just flat...

    Democrats are increasingly worried by the spending chasm between the two sides — and its implications for 2020. Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised more than $300 million this year for his reelection — more than any other sitting president in history at this point in the campaign. Trump has nearly twice as much cash on hand — $158 million, between his campaign account and the RNC — as Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at this time in his successful re-election run. Already this year, Trump’s campaign operation has spent close to $23 million...

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | October 15, 2019 | Julia Wolfe and Chris Zubak-Skees
    When a presidential candidate raises a lot of money, they’re probably going to tell you about it, which leads to a lot of headlines like this:(HEADLINES-AT-LINK) Those headlines aren’t wrong, but they also don’t tell you that much on their own. That’s because each candidate who’s bragging about his or her fundraising total is doing it in a vacuum. It’s tough to know whether to care about, say, Bernie Sanders’s haul without knowing what the other candidates brought in. Luckily, all candidates must file detailed reports of their fundraising and spending at least once a quarter. This information, which is...
  • Trump Supporters Celebrate Payoff of Fundraising Efforts in California

    Many supporters of President Donald Trump are celebrating new fundraising figures from California – figures that show him outpacing any single democrat, although he has not raised more than the total amount that Democrats have. The new figures are significant because they’re from so-called “small amount donors,” supporters who gave $200 or less. The figures also show that he has raised much more money than any of his Democratic rivals in what’s usually a democratic state – but the numbers also show that he’s benefiting from being the only viable Republican in the race. Between July and September Trump has...

    EXCLUSIVE: The Republican National Committee raised a record-setting $27.3 million in September and had $59.2 million cash on hand last month amid the impeachment push against President Trump -- which has fueled GOP campaign contributions heading into the 2020 election. The RNC’s September fundraising haul is the best off-cycle month in the history of both the Republican and Democratic parties. This cycle, to date, the RNC has almost tripled the Democratic National Committee’s fundraising efforts, according to the GOP, which also noted that the Democrats, as of last month, carried $7.3 million in debt. “While Democrats focus on fighting President...

    (CNN)Just as Joe Biden -- and the rest of the 11 Democratic contenders -- were rounding the final turn in the fourth presidential debate on Tuesday night, a bombshell dropped. No, not on the stage in Westerville, Ohio. All the way back in Washington, DC, where reports detailing how much each of the candidates raised, spent and most importantly have left in the bank began to land at the Federal Election Commission. And the bombshell was this: Joe Biden, the former vice president of the United States and the 2020 Democratic front-runner from the day he entered the race officially...

    ‘Biden looks like he can’t compete with Warren, Bernie and Buttigieg. How’s he going to compete with Trump?’ said one GOP strategist. Joe Biden’s middling $15.2 million third-quarter fundraising haul is raising fresh questions about whether the former vice president’s campaign can withstand a new onslaught of Republican ad attacks while simultaneously waging a battle for the Democratic nomination. Biden’s campaign has long framed his candidacy around the idea that he can beat Trump in a head-to-head contest, particularly in the battleground states that were central to Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton. But Biden’s polling numbers in the Democratic...

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has achieved a presidential fundraising record by bringing in $125 million in the third quarter of the year, along with the Republican National Committee. The RNC said Tuesday that it raised more than $308 million in 2019 with $156 million in the bank. Obviously these funds will be used to fight Democrats’ ridiculous impeachment push. Trump is Breaking Records and Blew Obama’s Fundraising Out of the Water To compare, former President Barack Obama raised just over $70 million at this same juncture of his re-election in 2011.

    National Public Radio ^ | October 1, 2019 | Tamara Keith and Amita Kelly
    The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee took in a huge haul in the third quarter, which ended Monday — a combined $125 million. This means that this year alone, they've raised more than $300 million — double the total that then-President Obama and the Democratic Party had raised at this point in 2011 on Obama's way to a successful reelection bid. But there's a big difference between now and 2011 — President Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry. The campaign claims that this move by House Democrats helped supercharge Trump's fundraising. Three days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi...
