There’s nothing easy about running a campaign. These candidates are learning that the hard way.
And Republicans have been blindsided after this alarming 2024 election report threatened everything.
Presidential hopefuls are doing all they can to boost fundraising numbers as the 2023 calendar year creeps it’s way to a close.
Former President Donald Trump has raised $45 million in this year’s third quarter.
It’s a staggering number when compared to other Republican candidates like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
DeSantis has raised $15 million in Q3 while Haley has raised $11 million.
When using Trump as a benchmark, DeSantis and Haley have quite a bit of work to do to increase their fundraising numbers.
But now, even Trump is going to have to adjust his goals after a new 2024 campaign report dropped.
On Sunday, The Hill reported that Joe Biden’s campaign has gathered over $71 million in donations in Q3.
The re-election campaign also has liquid cash in the amount of almost $91 million.
This is considered “the highest total amassed by any Democratic candidate in history at this point in the cycle,” according to the Biden campaign.
President Biden is also raking in donors at an alarmingly high rate.
They have now gotten over 240,000 new donors who didn’t give to his 2020 presidential campaign.
And since the spring of this year, Biden has gotten the support of over 112,000 monthly donors.
“We are especially proud of our efforts to exponentially grow our grassroots donor base, now having over a hundred thousand Americans signed up to donate on a recurring basis from now until Election Day,” Joe Biden campaign manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez said.
“These numbers are a testament to one of our core objectives early in this campaign: raise the resources needed to run an aggressive campaign that will win in November 2024.”
The fundraising feats for Joe Biden are certain to cause some concern for the Republican field.
But the good news is, donors don’t equate to electoral votes in the general election.
And with Donald Trump going through a political witch hunt over indictments, he’s sure to bring in more donations through the support of his base.
