WASHINGTON — The Republican National Committee raised more than $100 million last year, the party chairman announced Wednesday.
GOP Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted the numbers Wednesday morning, calling it a “historic” haul.
According to the most recent filings available with the Federal Election Commission, the RNC has been steadily out-raising Democrats.
Through November 30, the last reporting deadline, the RNC had raised more than $75 million and had just over $18 million cash on hand. The Democratic National Committee had reported nearly $51 million raised and cash on hand of almost $5 million.
The DNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Priebus’ announcement.
