Trump’s re-election campaign raised more than million in first-quarter of 2019

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign raised more than $ 30 million in the first quarter of 2019, his campaign said on Sunday, far outpacing the total raised by individual Democratic candidates during that period.

Trump’s first-quarter haul, leaving his 2020 re-election effort with $ 40.8 million in cash, showed Republican donors were willing to invest in him as he girds for what is likely to be a difficult bid for a second term.

Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris have led the field of Democratic contenders in fundraising so far in 2019, raising $ 18.2 million and $ 12 million respectively in the first quarter. Sanders’ campaign said it received an average donation of $ 20 during the first quarter.

The Trump campaign said its average donation during the same period was $ 34.26, and that nearly 99 percent of its donations were $ 200 or less.

The Republican National Committee brought in $ 45.8 million in the first quarter. Trump’s re-election campaign is raising money along aside the RNC in what is called a Trump Victory effort.
