DNC Fundraising Hits Six-Year Low as RNC Surges

The Democratic National Committee (DNC), fresh off its latest push for cohesion in a nationwide “unity tour,” hit a six-year-low in fundraising for the month of April while the Republican National Committee (RNC) more than doubled what its opponents raised.

A report from the Federal Election Commission published Monday showed the DNC raised $4.7 million, a low not reached since April of 2009, compared to Republicans’ $9.6 million. Republicans reported having $41 million in cash while Democrats had $8.8 million in cash on hand, according to the Washington Examiner.

DNC fundraising stayed within $6.3 million and $14.4 million from 2010 to 2014. 2017 was an “off-year” for fundraising, the Examiner reported, and saw a concerted effort by members of the Democratic Party to build cohesion after their 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton lost her bid for the presidency.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Clinton’s primary challenger who is seen as a more progressive Democrat, and DNC Chair Tom Perez, who some Democrats see as representing the establishment wing of the party, recently rallied party members at several “unity tour” events.
