    House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy brought in a record-breaking fundraising windfall in the lead-up to the November election as Republicans try to take back control of the House from Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats. McCarthy raised more than $16 million in the third quarter across all seven of his fundraising accounts. That puts his total for the 2020 election at $103 million -- the most ever for a House Republican in any election cycle, a McCarthy campaign aide told Fox News. The fundraising haul has allowed McCarthy to pump funds into individual House races where Republicans are trying to defeat...

    CLEVELAND - Joe Biden’s campaign touted that it raised a record $3.8 million in fundraising during the 10 p.m. ET hour on Tuesday night as the former vice president and President Trump traded fire during an extremely combustible first of three presidential debates. And the Biden campaign characterized Trump and “tired and angry” while Biden appeared “confidently smiling.” “There was one leader on stage tonight and one liar,” charged Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield.

    Erica Kious, a single mother of two and owner of eSalon, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got her hair done on Monday is now being forced to shut down and relocate her business and family due to outrage and threats she is receiving. A maskless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited eSalon on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic. San Francisco's coronavirus guidelines allowed hair salons to reopen their businesses for outdoor services starting Tuesday, with clients seen one at a time. Haircuts are permitted, according to the guidance, but...

GoFundMe said campaigns for Mr. Rittenhouse violated its terms of service but did not explain further. A campaign on rival service Fundly disappeared without explanation as well.

    Ilhan Omar's primary opponent has raised a whopping seven times more money than the controversial Congresswoman - also raising the possibility Omar could be voted out of office after just one term. Antonne Melton-Meaux brought in $3.2 million while Omar received $471,600 in the second quarter of 2020, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. Melton-Meaux, who seeks to unseat Omar in Minnesota’s fifth congressional district, is a lawyer and mediator. It is nearly impossible for Minneapolis to miss Melton-Meaux's flyers and campaign ads that have blanketed television. When asked what inspired him to run for office, Melton-Meaux told...

    Media reports on the June fundraising totals would have you believe that Joe Biden “tops” or “beats” President Trump. However, whoever is running Joe Biden’s campaign better keep the corks in the champagne bottles, because the truth is June was a terrible month for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. Joe Biden was an anemic fundraiser throughout his primary battle. A report from Politico in October of 2019 said Biden was getting “crushed” in fundraising. It argued, “Obama and Clinton’s biggest donors favor Biden, yet he still can’t match his rivals’ cash flow.” According to the report, Biden had more...

    President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden both set eye-popping fundraising records last month – but Biden’s records were larger. The former vice president’s campaign announced on Wednesday night that they, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and their joint fundraising committees hauled in a combined $141 million in June, which was by far the campaign’s best monthly figure to date. Biden’s campaign called it a “jaw-dropping sum of money”

    EXCLUSIVE: The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign posted their largest online fundraising day ever on Sunday, bringing in $14 million across three entities on the president's birthday — smashing their previous online fundraising record of $10 million on Oct. 19, 2016. The surge in cash comes as Republicans' war chest continues to dwarf Democrats' holdings, as it has for the entire primary cycle. Trump and the RNC – which have been building a fundraising juggernaut for more than three years – have roughly $255 million cash on hand, compared with the approximately $100 million the Joe Biden campaign...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden announced on Monday night that he brought in $46.7 million dollars in March, the most the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s raised in a single month since launching his campaign nearly one year ago. Biden – who struggled to bring in cash for much of his campaign, has seen his fundraising spike the past couple of months. He raised just $8.9 million in January, but doubled his haul to $18 million in February. Thanks to a series of sweeping primary victories by Biden stating in South Carolina on Feb. 29 and extending into mid-March, all but...

    Congressional Republicans continue to face a significant fundraising disadvantage against their Democratic opponents, according to newly released first-quarter campaign finance reports. These money woes will only increase GOP panic over their prospects in hotly contested Senate and House races. The fundraising disparity is all-encompassing: Of the 10 most-competitive Senate races, Democratic candidates outraised their Republican rivals in eight of them—often by massive margins. Republican senators with built-in fundraising advantages were badly outmatched by lesser-known Democratic challengers. In the bellwether Maine and North Carolina races that will determine which party holds the Senate majority, Democrats raised more than twice the amount...

    Playing the role of life preserver, the liberal media are desperately trying to buoy Joe Biden’s sinking candidacy — but the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee keeps clinging grimly to the anchor that is dragging him down to the depths of political irrelevance. The New York Times recently published an article arguing that “Joe Biden’s campaign and top donors are racing to reimagine the ways they raise money as worries grow that the coronavirus could choke off contributions from donors big and small.” The article sought to put a positive spin on Biden’s predicament, analyzing how the Democrat front-runner might be...

    Joe Biden’s campaign is looking to expand its fundraising operation as it prepares to take on President Donald Trump in the general election. Officials within Biden’s organization have discussed bringing in a new group of regional fundraising advisors, including former aides to Sen. Kamala Harris’ and Pete Buttigieg’s campaigns, who could help them expand their donor network, according to people familiar with the matter. These people declined to be named because the talks were private. Biden had a strong March, raising more than $30 million in online donations, as the coronavirus has pushed his campaign into a fully online platform,...
