President Trump’s re-election campaign has set a Presidential fundraising record for Q3.

Trump Campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted out the record breaking statistics Tuesday afternoon.


$125M raised combined
$156M cash on hand
$308M raised YTD

Twice as much cash on hand as Obama had at same point in 2011.

Axios reports President Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee said they raised $125 million in the third quarter of 2019, setting a new presidential fundraising record, with more than $156 million cash on hand, AP reports.

Context: Former President Obama and the Democratic National Committee raised approximately $70 million for his re-election campaign in 2011’s third quarter. “Trump is going to have more resources to deploy earlier and more aggressively than any candidate in history,” Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser to Obama, tweeted in response to the news on Tuesday.

The big picture: Sen. Bernie Sanders thus far leads all 2020 Democrats in Q3 fundraising, though only a few have publicly released their totals.
