President Donald Trump’s endorsement is considered the gold standard of the Republican Party, and the campaign fundraising numbers prove it.
Fox News reported that three of Trump’s political fundraising committees, including Save America JFC, MAGA PAC, and Save America PAC, ended June with a jaw-dropping $112 million in cash on hand. In the second quarter of 2022 alone, the fundraising committees received $17 million in donations.
The success of Trump’s fundraising efforts is unsurprising, given the strong polling numbers for his endorsed candidates like gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake. Lake leads with at least 40 percent of GOP voters in virtually every poll pitting her against her Republican opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson.
Trump-endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona, Blake Masters, told Breitbart News Saturday that Trump’s endorsement had been “like rocket fuel for this campaign.”
Additionally, Trump’s pick in the Wyoming House race against incumbent “RINO” Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., Harriet Hageman, shattered her own campaign fundraising record last week. She hauled in $1.8 million in donations in the second quarter of 2022, smashing her previous record of $1.3 million in the first quarter.
Fox News’ report highlighted the fact that Trump’s average donation during the second quarter of 2022 was $27.17, with over 98 percent of those donations clocking in at under $200.
The epic fundraising numbers for Trump’s committees signal nationwide support for the 45th president and his endorsees in key battleground states. It also bodes well for Trump heading into a potential announcement of a 2024 presidential bid.
According to a report from The Washington Post, two of his advisors anonymously revealed that Trump might announce his decision on running as early as September. Trump himself told New York Magazine that he “had already made that decision” on whether to run in 2024.
The only question that remains is when Trump will make his announcement. If he does decide to run in 2024, his campaign fundraising and the success of his endorsees strongly indicate that Americans will continue to support the 45th president’s efforts to Make America Great Again.
