House Speaker Adds To Record-Breaking Fundraising Total And Has Now Transferred Over $45M To NRCC This Cycle
WASHINGTON, DC — House Speaker Paul Ryan’s joint-fundraising committee, Team Ryan, continued its impressive efforts in 2018’s second fundraising quarter, and announced today that the Speaker has now raised more than $70 million this election cycle on behalf of House Republicans.
“Following his retirement announcement, Speaker Ryan has kept his promise to run through the tape and lead political efforts for House Republicans,” said Kevin Seifert, executive director of Team Ryan. “In stark contrast to Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Ryan is both a major fundraising draw and a valuable asset to members and candidates on the campaign trail, and he will continue to be actively involved in both of those areas through November.”
Since January 2017, Team Ryan has transferred more than $45 million to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), shattering the $25 million goal that was set at the beginning of the election cycle. During the past fundraising quarter, the Speaker transferred an additional $4 million to the committee, and in total raised just under $10 million in the three-month fundraising period.
In addition to significant fundraising swings through California, Illinois, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina during the second fundraising quarter this year, the Speaker also has made campaign stops on behalf of GOP candidates in California’s Central Valley, Southern Ohio, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
