Pelosi Has ‘Significant Record-Breaking Fundraising Haul’ for Democrats in 2019

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) brought in a large sum of funds for Democrats in 2019, even though it was an off election year.

The announcement of the “significant record-breaking fundraising haul” came on Thursday. The House speaker raised tens of millions more than the $49.5 million raised in 2017.

In 2019, Pelosi brought in over $87 million for Democrats, and she held 181 fundraisers in 54 cities. Of the $87 million, more than $75 million was raised directly for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

The Speaker’s executive director, Jorge Aguilar, wrote on Twitter that the fundraising haul “is a direct reflection of voters’ rising enthusiasm to expand our House Democratic Majority that’s been delivering meaningful progress [For The People], take back the Senate and elect a Democratic President.”

Additionally, her office notes, “Since entering the Democratic leadership in 2002, the Speaker has raised $815.5 million for Democrats.”

As CNBC political finance reporter Brian Schwartz noted on Twitter, Pelosi raised these funds in 2019 “not just during an off year, but through a cycle that included impeachment and passing dozens of pieces of legislation.”

Pelosi’s executive director also took a swing at President Donald Trump in another tweet.

“While the GOP continues to prioritize special interests [and] cover up Trump’s abuses of power, voters from across the country know that under Pelosi, House Democrats are aggressively working to lower prescription drug costs [and] fighting to protect people with pre-existing conditions,” he wrote.
