WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump raised more than $21 million for his re-election campaign during the closing months of 2018.
It’s a massive three-month haul that puts the Republican on strong financial footing at a time when Democratic presidential candidates are just starting to campaign. It also dwarfs what either of the last two presidents posted at the same stage.
The year-end numbers were released Thursday by the campaign, which also reported $19.2 million cash on-hand.
Officials say a majority of contributions were raised through contributions of $200 or less.
They also say spending was drastically ramped up at the end of 2018 with $23 million going toward efforts to boost Trump and support GOP candidates during midterm elections.
