    FNC's Laura Ingraham asked Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday night what he would do as the nominee about the "disturbing" Republican National Committee fundraising numbers. "You need somebody who's leading the charge, like I did in Florida, who's going to inspire people to want to support the effort, because they see that your vision is going in the right direction. We did that in Florida," DeSantis said. but here's the thing as the nominee. I will be responsible for doing it and I will get the job done, regardless of who the chairman of it is. I led the drive...

    Even as Hamas continues to hold civilian hostages, including about 10 Americans, no less than 17 Hamas-linked charities are operating in the open, sending money to Hamas or Hamas proxies and sometimes spreading Hamas propaganda in return. A Middle East Forum investigation published in the Focus on Western Islam documents over $260 million donated to Hamas-aligned 501(c)3, tax-exempt charitable organizations. According to the report, "Donors include the foundation arms of household companies such as PayPal, Fidelity, Shell, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America, Schwab, along with major philanthropic charities such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation."When the FBI is making...

    DeSantis for President is selling plain white cotton T-shirts bearing the legend “DeSantis Airways” for $28 apiece. The governor signed an executive order Oct. 12 authorizing the Florida Division of Emergency Management to “carry out logistical, rescue and evacuation operations to keep its residents safe.” Per the DeSantis team, at least 544 Americans have been brought back from Israel via the flights. Kevin Guthrie, executive director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, estimated to NewsNation Tuesday that the price tag of the initial flight was “right around $4 million

    The 2024 GOP presidential campaign for former President Trump raised $24.5 million in the third quarter of this year, roughly double what any of his primary rivals reported over the same period. The fundraising report released Sunday night by the Federal Election Commission comes at the same time Trump leads his closest primary rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, by nearly 45.5 points, according to the polls average. Trump also has more than three times as much available cash than DeSantis, who has essentially been Trump's closest challenger so far in the polls. Trump has $37.5 million, compared to $12.3...

    Ron DeSantis has less money and more problems. The Florida governor's presidential campaign entered this month with just $5 million in cash available for the primary, a sum that reignites doubts about his solvency, budgeting and ability to gain ground on front-running former President Donald Trump. The pain is so acute that DeSantis is redeploying aides from his Tallahassee headquarters to Des Moines for the stretch run of a do-or-die Jan. 15 Iowa caucus. At the end of the second quarter, DeSantis had $6.6 million in primary funds available, according to an NBC News analysis of his last campaign finance...

    Political action committee Never Back Down spoke to dozens of wealthy Republican backers about how they are going to lean on 'warm and humble' Casey to make Ron more likable in the unfolding campaign. CEO Chris Jankowski told the donors on August 23: 'We just need your help getting $50 million more by the end of the year, and $100 million more by the end of March. Never Back Down has been operating as a type of shadow campaign for DeSantis after receiving an initial $82.5 million from his own state political committee. Jankowski, Davison and Roe spent their time...

    Donald Trump attended a fundraising dinner for January 6th defendants at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club on Tuesday night, ahead of the first Republican presidential debate and his own arrest in Atlanta. The dinner benefited the Patriot Freedom Project, the controversial nonprofit that supports those criminally charged in the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, who they describe as 'political prisoners.' Trump also addressed a Patriot Freedom Project fundraiser at his New Jersey club in June.

    Hawaii is holding a “Ukraine Independence Day Event” on Aug 26th at Magic island to raise money and awareness for the War in Ukraine. They are still digging up the charred remains of victims in Lahaina. There are over 1,000 people missing. Maybe they should put a pause on the Ukrainian fundraiser? At least until they find all the bodies of the missing children. But it is a committed leftist state – so it won’t matter. Wow! Are you kidding me??

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a top contender for the U.S. Senate race in California, revealed Wednesday his campaign raised $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2023. Schiff, who is hoping to replace retiring Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in the solid blue state, said the haul came from 144,000 unique donors and that the average contribution was $34. He now has $29.5 million in cash on hand. Schiff’s campaign touted a remark in Politico that “nothing so far comes close to Rep. Adam Schiff’s record-breaking” $8.1 million, a massive figure that far surpasses any other candidate who has announced his...

    Vice President Kamala Harris, who was tasked by the White House to address the "root cause" of mass migration, attended a fundraiser Friday in a wealthy Atlanta suburb, less than 24 hours after Title 42 expired. Harris gave remarks at the Democratic Party of Georgia's spring soirée in Buckhead, but did not mention immigration during her speech that appeared to last about 20 minutes. The event came as thousands of migrants flooded the border after the expiration of Title 42 – a COVID-19 emergency policy that allowed border agents to turn away migrants.

    Ex-president Donald Trump spent an hour on Friday talking to his former adviser Steve Bannon during which he bashed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and claimed that Republican donors are abandoning the not-yet-declared 2024 presidential candidate and flocking to the Trump campaign. Trump has been doing long interviews with right-wing talk hosts to promote his new book. Last week Fox’s Mark Levin spent an hour with Trump on the subject, and on Friday it was Trump’s former adviser Bannon, who hosts a daily show on the Real America’s Voice network. Trump lit into DeSantis, as he does routinely to the governor...

    A new report echoed by Maggie Haberman (the original is by the far-left Financial Times) is claiming that a major donor is dropping plans to back Ron DeSantis in 2024. A closer look reveals that there’s a lot more to the story, though. Haberman, who has long sourced reports directly from the Trump camp, pushed a quote from Thomas Peterffy in which he states that DeSantis has become too extreme on social issues. He cites “book banning” and abortion as the two reasons he’s supposedly backing away. A major donor finally goes on record with what has been a whisper:...

    Former President Donald Trump has raised more than $34 million for his 2024 White House run since the start of the year, buoyed by a big bump in donations since the announcement of criminal charges against him in New York, according to his campaign. His total after the March 30 indictment approached what he took in over the previous three months. Trump’s latest fundraising report due to be filed Saturday with the Federal Election Commission will show he raised more than $18.8 million between his main campaign account and a joint fundraising account over the the first three months of...

    Former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has been subpoenaed in connection with a probe into fundraising efforts following the 2020 election, according to multiple reports. The subpoena, which was sent in November and first reported by CNN, seeks documents from Giuliani about payments he received during the period when he was filing post-election lawsuits on behalf of the Trump campaign. The subpoena was signed by an attorney in the D.C. U.S. attorney office and predated the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) appointment of special counsel Jack Smith, though the special counsel’s office has likewise been investigating the inner workings of Save America...
  • The Gargantuan Fundraising of Beto O’Rourke and Stacey Abrams

    Beto O’Rourke has raised $76.5 million in his bid for governor of Texas this year. Stacey Abrams has raised $85 million in her bid for governor of Georgia. When all is said and done, O’Rourke will probably top $80 million and Abrams may raise more than $90 million, so Democratic donors have given least $161 million, and may give about $170 million or so to two progressive Democrats who are running fairly longshot races against Republican incumbents in traditionally GOP-leaning southern states. But I will make one small – I mean, best-use-a-microscope small — defense of O’Rourke and Abrams. Just...
