Former President Donald Trump’s campaign and affiliated groups announced on Wednesday they brought in over $65.6 million during the month of March.

The haul includes funds raised by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and their affiliated entities, according to a press release. Trump’s fundraising apparatus, which has been lagging behind President Joe Biden’s, also announced topping $93.1 million in cash on hand going into April.

DCNF-logo“Our campaign, working together with the RNC, has been steadily ramping up our fundraising efforts, and our March numbers are a testament to the overwhelming support for President Trump by voters all across the spectrum,” Susie Wiles, senior advisor to the Trump campaign, said in a statement. “Republicans may not be beneficiaries of the self interested largess from Hollywood and Silicon Valley elites, but President Trump is proud to be supported by donations from voters who are the backbone of this nation, which will fuel Republicans up and down the ballot.”

Biden and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) have not yet announced their March totals, but the campaign topped $25 million at a ritzy fundraiser in New York City on Thursday with help from former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. The Democrats ended February with a combined $97.5 million on hand, far out-pacing Trump and the RNC’s $44.8 million, according to Politico.

“Donald Trump spent his first month as the presumptive Republican nominee holed up in a back room at Mar-a-Lago with billionaire special interests while he continues to struggle with the kind of grassroots donors who are powering our campaign,” Ammar Moussa, the rapid response director for the Biden campaign, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement. “Trump is spending what money he does have on everything but reaching out to the voters – and it’s obvious he doesn’t have the infrastructure, the donor base, or the broad appeal to win this election.”

Trump has been faced with mounting legal fees throughout his 2024 campaign, which reportedly cost his fundraising apparatus over $50 million last year, according to Axios.

“President Donald J. Trump has again created a fundraising juggernaut among Republicans. While he has been the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party for less than a month, the RNC and Trump campaign are one unified operation and focused on victory,” RNC Chairman Michael Whatley said in a statement. “We’re raising funds and making strategic investments to get out the vote and protect the ballot. We are going to win BIG in just 31 weeks.”

Both Trump and Biden secured enough delegates to clinch their respective parties’ nominations with primary contests on March 12.
