DNC Chair Says the Dem Nominee ‘Won’t Stand a Chance’ Against Trump Without More Cash

@MeetThePress/Twitter

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) said that the party’s nominee for the 2020 presidential election would not “stand a chance” against President Donald Trump.

According to the Washington Examiner, DNC Chairman Tom Perez sent an email to supporters where he called the recently released record-breaking fundraising numbers from the Republican National Committee (RNC) “daunting” and called for Democratic donors to “turn up the heat” on their fundraising efforts to stop the party’s candidates across the nation from being “overwhelmed by the GOP’s money machine.”

“We don’t have to match Trump and the RNC dollar for dollar in order to beat them, but it’s clear that we urgently need to turn up the heat on our fundraising to keep our eventual nominee and Democrats nationwide from being overwhelmed by the GOP’s money machine in the general election.”

He went on to say that the person who has been chosen to run for the party in the 2020 presidential election would not “stand a chance” against the president and the Republican “fundraising machine” without more money.

“Our eventual nominee won’t stand a chance against Trump and the GOP’s fundraising machine unless we start making strategic, early investments right now,” continued Perez.

The news came the same day that the RNC announced they had raked in nearly $21 million in fundraising for the 2020 election cycle.

The RNC brought in $20.8 million in July and held zero dollars in debt. The GOP also saw their largest haul of online fundraising to date in July.

Conversely, in the same month, the DNC brought in $7.8 million in fundraising and incurred $5.6 million in debt.

Perez also announced that he would be holding several Democratic fundraisers in Mexico City, Mexico with expatriated Americans there, Bloomberg reported Monday.

The DNC website’s registration form for the events requires that a potential attendee be a citizen or permanent resident and asks for a green card or passport numbers.

DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa confirmed that the DNC chair would be throwing the fundraising events.

What do you think?

>Screwtape< RE: "Ask the Clinton's for money." I recall in 2001 how Hillary was complaining about being "broke" almost to the point of being destitute and homeless as they left the White House with some of the people's property. Conversely since that date, lecherous Billy Bob has amassed a "small net worth" of OVER $80 million while Hillary has managed to throw together $45 million from her "egg money". Perhaps Hillary got her money from her expeditions out to sea – fishing for suckers to bleed. [She'll need every bit of it for her defense of her criminal activities from… Read more »

Ask former Dim pols who “mysteriously” got rich. I wonder if Al Gore will fly economy instead of private jet to his “Green” conferences so he can donate.

Ask Pelosi, “nuke option” Reid, or any of the other wealthy members of your party. Ask cokehead and traitor Hunter Biden.

Ask the Clintons for money. Good luck with that. Hiring assassins ain’t cheap. BWAHAHA!

Maybe the DNC should ask the Russians, CCP, and Palestinians for financial aid. Hmm. At least they have Soros, Steyer, Bloomberg, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood. How are THOSE donations going?

Maybe there are drawbacks to wooing the poor and stupid for votes. Promise them everything then suck up their dollars. How many fast-food workers and illegal immigrants are contributing to the DNC?

So the DNC’s net take in July was $2.2. million. Not to brag, but I’ve got more than that after a lifetime of saving and investing. Go capitalism! Go Californians moving to OR and inflating real estate values! Go Amazon!

Funny how the party that rants about collusion and money influencing politics is now going to ex-pats for funding. Why not just ask Mexico, or more specifically, the cartels?

IF the DNC did receive more money, what do they plan to do with it? Are they going to bribe Trump to drop out and let them win? Would probably be their ONLY chance to see the inside of the Oval Office.

Why is this news. I get notifications and emails from Democrats AND Republicans all the time asking for money.

It would be more shocking if they didn’t.
