Washington, D.C. – House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced today that his national political operation, Team Ryan, transferred $3.4 million to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) this month. This eclipses the previous January transfer high for a Republican Speaker – $2.5 million – also from Team Ryan.
Congressman Steve Stivers is off to an impressive start as NRCC Chairman. As conservatives prepare for a competitive election cycle, Team Ryan is committed to standing with Chairman Stivers to defend and strengthen our Republican House majority. Speaker Ryan will continue to support the NRCC and he has now transferred nearly $45 million to the committee since becoming Speaker in October 2015.
Kevin Seifert, Executive Director of Team Ryan, said: “Paul Ryan raised a record amount for a Republican House Speaker in 2016, and we saw his efforts – and those of our members – translate to electoral success for House Republicans on November 8th. As we start 2017, Paul is not slowing down and neither are his supporters. He is deeply appreciative of the support and invigorated by the sheer enthusiasm from Americans all across the country.
“2017 and 2018 are about delivering results for the American people and Paul Ryan is ready to meet that challenge head-on and get America back on track. It’s encouraging that many across the nation feel the same way.”
Team Ryan is Speaker Paul Ryan’s federal Joint Fundraising Committee (JFC) and his national political organization. Team Ryan is dedicated to assisting his re-election efforts in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, supporting Republicans across the country who are advancing conservative solutions, and raising the resources needed to defend and strengthen the Republican majority in Congress.
The Team Ryan JFC is comprised of Ryan for Congress, Inc., Prosperity Action PAC, Inc. & the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
