Trump Raises $105 Million in Second Quarter Fundraising, Democrats Look to Keep Pace
President Trump’s reelection campaign efforts are in full swing. For the second quarter, the 45th president, along with the Republican party, was able to amass $105 million.
Trump’s $54 million combined with the RNC’s $51 million eclipses the $46 million mark set by Obama’s reelection campaign in the second quarter of 2011.
According to Bovada, Trump’s reelection odds in 2020 are sitting at 50 percent; the Republican incumbent versus the Democratic field on the other 50 percent.
In his first quarter of the reelection campaign, Trump raised $30.3 million.
So far, the only Democrats to release their quarterly fundraising numbers are Sen. Bernie Sanders (+1000) and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (+1000).
All candidates are required to disclose their fundraising amounts by July 15.
Sanders was able to raise $18 million between April and June 2019.
Sanders’s numbers are aided through his network of small donors but are remaining stagnant since the first quarter where he raised $18.2 million.
Buttigieg announced July 1 that he was able to raise $24.8 million in the second quarter.
This is an astronomical rise as Buttigieg only raised $7.1 million during the first quarter.
While Sen. Kamala Harris (+550) has not released her second-quarter fundraising figures yet, numbers are expected to be strong.
Twenty-four hours after the first Democratic debate, Harris’s campaign claimed it raised $2 million, thanks to her confronting former VP Joe Biden on his opposition to integrated school busing.
Later that weekend, Harris raised another $1.2 million.
Harris should pass her first quarter totals, where she raised $12 million, in this most recent quarter.
Biden, still the Democrat favorite at +550, claims to have raised $20 million since April.
Other numbers to watch for include Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (+3500) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (+850).
In the first quarter, O’Rourke raised $9.4 million.
In April 2019, at the time of his first quarter number release, O’Rourke had odds of +900.
Now, he sits at +3500. If these odds coincide with his fundraising numbers, his fundraising totals should take a big dip.
Warren, who was +3000 during the first quarter, was able to raise $6 million.
But now as a frontrunner at +850, Warren’s fundraising total will surely break the eight-figure mark.
