The Republican National Committee just revealed that they brought in an astounding $117 million through online fundraising during Democrats’ attempts to impeach President Donald Trump.
The money was raised through the RNC’s “Stop the Madness” campaign, which was promoted through TV and digital ads after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced in September that the House would launch an impeachment inquiry into Trump.
The ads continued to run until Trump was acquitted by the Senate on Wednesday, according to McClatchy.
RNC spokesman Rick Gorka said that the ads cost $11.3 million to make and garnered 460 million impressions, and he added that the money raised will be used to invest in states Trump lost in 2016 but hopes to win in 2020.
“With the additional financial support, we are actively looking at additional ways to expand the map beyond our historic field program already in place,” Gorka wrote. “It also is putting Democrats in a tough place. The Democrats did not see the money and energy like we did and it is costing them every day.”
Two months ago, Trump predicted that the left’s impeachment effort would prove to be lucrative for his own party.
“I think it’s going to be a tremendous boom for the Republicans,” the president said.
Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee has not released any data about their impeachment-related fundraising efforts. They were only able to raise $28 million in donations in the fourth quarter of 2019, while the RNC raised just over $72 million from October through December. On top of that, the Trump campaign was able to raise $46 million.
This proves once and for all that the left’s impeachment efforts completely backfired on them.
Americans saw right through what Democrats were doing, and they could tell that the impeachment effort was really just a witch hunt against the president.
Democrats were trying to remove Trump from office by any means necessary, but all they may actually have accomplished was ensuring that he would get four more years in the White House.
