The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the campaign body of House Republicans, announced the committee’s record fundraiser of more than $ 105 million raised through September, the first nine months of the election cycle of 2022.
The $ 105 million raised in the first nine months of the year is a 74% increase from the last election cycle, including the committee’s massive $ 25.8 million gain in the third quarter, or 10 million more than the NRCC was able to make in the third quarter. quarter of the last cycle. The Republican House campaign arm also raised its largest campaign fund amount of $ 12.2 million for a September off-year.
“Voters are ready to fire Nancy Pelosi and hold the Biden administration accountable,” NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer said. “Special thanks to Chief Kevin McCarthy, Whip Steve Scalise, our Republican Conference and the tens of thousands of generous donors who made these record fundraising totals possible. “
Emmer thanked Republican House leaders for their own fundraiser which they have transferred so far this year to the NRCC, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) $ 19.4million House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) $ 10.3 million and Republican House Conference $ 1.2 million President Elise Stefanik (R-NY).
With the $ 65 million in cash – nearly triple the amount the committee had at that time in the last cycle – Emmer added, “House Democrats are rushing to the exits because they know that their days in the majority are numbered and we are eager to keep raising the pressure.
McCarthy, who also announced a record figure on Tuesday – raising nearly $ 60 million for House Republicans in the first three quarters of the 2022 election cycle – said in a statement: “With 13 months to go, the contrast is stark – Republicans across the country are motivated to retake the House, while Democrats run for exits. ”
The NRCC and Republican leaders are fighting for Republicans to return to the House after midterm if they succeed in toppling Democrats. Breitbart News has covered extensively the collapse of Pelosi’s majority as Democrats struggle to find candidates to run against Republicans.
Without successfully finding recruits and many members looking to retire or run for a higher position, Pelosi’s chances of retaining the slim Democratic majority in Congress dwindle.
