    Democracy. Global warming. Race. Or masks? If you’re trying to guess the hottest issue in American political fundraising – and you picked the pandemic and the health measures aimed at vanquishing it – you’re probably right. While nobody tracks how much money any one topic can raise for any one candidate, a quick scan of recent solicitations from nationally known Republicans and Democrats shows many seem to see COVID-19 as the cash cow of the 2022 election cycle. Consider: “… And now Dr. Fauci says he supports new vaccine mandates and other onerous COVID-19 restrictions on our freedoms – such as showing proof of vaccination to get on an airplane… ” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican, wrote in a Jan. 6 “Dear Patriot” letter seeking contributions. And… “We need action… And that means requiring proof of vaccination for all domestic air travel now. If people are going to board a plane and sit less than six inches away from others and their families, they should be fully vaccinated against COVID-19,” California Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat, wrote in a...
    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump made his return to campaign politics last month by trekking to northern Ohio to take revenge on one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach him: Rep. Anthony Gonzalez. But new campaign finance filings released this week show that Gonzalez narrowly outraised his Trump-supported primary foe in the last quarter, while boasting a war chest nearly three times the size of his opponent.The 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for inciting the January 6 insurrection are fully aware that the former President and his acolytes are determined to kick them out of their seats from South Carolina to California. Between April and June, all 10 raised more money than their primary foes, pitting the enduring strength of Trump's sway against the power of incumbents who have the ability to raise piles of cash in Washington and from around the country. One Republican — New York Rep. John Katko — does not even have a primary challenger yet, although Trump has pledged to find one."Many times I couldn't care less what the former President...

McAuliffe, who won the Democratic nomination for governor on Tuesday, is coming to the Big Apple later this month. New York businessman and Democratic donor Dennis Mehiel will host McAuliffe at an event at his home, according to an invitation obtained by CNBC. The gathering is set for June 17, and it will be one of McAuliffe's first in-person fundraising events since capturing the party's nomination. McAuliffe previously served as Virginia governor from 2014 to 2018, preceding fellow Democrat Ralph Northam. Politicians cannot serve consecutive gubernatorial terms in Virginia. Tickets start at $1,000 and go up to $5,000. Other prominent figures on the host committee include...
    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced Thursday it narrowly outraised the Republican National Campaign Committee (NRCC) in April, over a year from the midterm elections. The DCCC outraised their Republican counterpart by $1 million in April. The DCCC reportedly raised $12.2 million, touting it as their largest April haul in history. The NRCC announced they also brought in their best off-year April fundraising numbers with over $11.2 million. While the DCCC reportedly entered into March with $11 million in debt, they are now touting being debt-free. In a press release, the committee said it has $32.1 million cash on hand, claiming it is “nearly three times the amount the DCCC held at this point in April of 2019.” Were debt-free and have $32.1M cash on hand — nearly three times the amount we held at this point in April 2019!

High rollers who raise or donate $10,000 will get a code to join a half-hour pre-party Dec. 17, along with “flex tickets” that friends can use to join the main reception later on. But even they will have to mix their own cocktails and prep their own canapes if they hope to replicate the usual fundraiser experience. Donors at lower giving levels — ranging down to a $50 single-use pass for young Democrats and activists — will get varying levels of access for friends...

In addition to the fundraising effort, the NRSC has already dispatched more than a dozen staffers to the state in a push to build out a presidential-level voter contact program ahead of the Jan. 5 runoffs.  The Wall Street Journal first reported the investments, which were later confirmed by the NRSC. ...
    Fox News host Laura Ingraham appeared to get slightly annoyed with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Tuesday night after he once again hawked his campaign website on the cable news network, telling him it was “enough” and that his act was “like a used car salesman after a while.” During the run-up to Graham’s high-profile race against Democratic candidate Jaime Harrison, the senator became somewhat infamous for appearing daily on Fox News opinion programs and begging viewers to donate to his campaign. The Trump-boosting lawmaker openly complained that Democrats from around the country were flooding Harrison’s campaign with cash and he needed to catch up. Even though Graham has since defeated his Democratic rival, he’s continued to use his campaign to raise additional cash. Besides pledging $500,000 to President Donald Trump’s legal efforts to contest the results of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, Graham has also begun to fundraise for the two Senate runoff races in Georgia. And so Fox viewers have been subjected to further entreaties for campaign cash. During his appearance on Ingraham’s primetime show on Tuesday evening, the...
    Roger Sollenberger October 30, 2020 9:00AM (UTC) White House chief of staff Mark Meadows appears to have tapped into federal resources to help a friend of his wife's raise money for her campaign to fill his congressional seat, government records show. The revelation sharpens questions that election law experts raised in Salon's previous report on Meadows' possible use of campaign funds for personal expenses, a crime that earned prison time for former Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif. : As Salon previously reported, Meadows' congressional campaign committee spent $312 on food and $15 for parking fees on Jan. 21 of this year at the Grove Park Inn & Resort in North Carolina. However, Meadows himself was in Washington that day, where he spoke with press during a break in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial. Meadows' wife, Debbie, however, was on the last day of a four-day swing through Meadows' former district in western North Carolina, holding a series of fundraisers for her friend, Lynda Bennett, a candidate for the seat that Meadows had recently announced he would leave. A Bennett campaign invitation from the time says that Debbie Meadows and Bennett...
    By Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican President Donald Trump on Saturday headed to Nevada, trying to drum up more support in a state where polls show Democratic rival Joe Biden leading, and to raise money for a campaign that is facing a possible cash crunch. Trump is trailing Biden, a former vice president, in national polls and in Nevada, which the former real estate developer and reality television star lost narrowly to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump plans to attend campaign events in Nevada and Arizona during a three-day Western swing that will also include a stop in California on Monday to be briefed about devastating fires that are ravaging the West Coast. The president is ramping up fundraising, too, amid concerns that his campaign is dealing with a cash shortage, leading it to pull back television advertising in crucial states. A Republican official said some $18 million would be raised over the weekend through events in Washington and Nevada. Trump will hold a rally in Reno on Saturday evening, a "Latinos for Trump" event and...
