RNC spokeswoman: Trump fundraising haul driven by small-dollar donations

A spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee (RNC) told Hill.TV on Thursday that President Trump’s reelection campaign and the RNC’s third-quarter fundraising haul was driven by small dollar-donors.

The Trump campaign and RNC said earlier this month that they raised $125 million from July through September, and began October with more than $156 million in the bank.

“This is really being driven by small-dollar donations,” Liz Harrington told Hill.TV, arguing that the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Trump has prompted donors to contribute.

She singled out Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s (D-Calif.) support for an impeachment probe last month, saying it tied her to more progressive lawmakers like Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
