As America enters the final month of the historic 2020 presidential campaign season, strong fundraising becomes more important than ever.
Fox Business reported today that the official pro-Trump Super PAC, America First, outraised Priorities USA in the third quarter.
They’ve already committed $106 million into independent expenditures in battleground states and promised more announcements to come.
The Fox Business story is below:
The leading outside group that’s supporting President Trump‘s reelection hauled in nearly $100 million in fundraising the past three months, narrowly edging out the top outside group that’s backing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s White House bid.
America First Action on Thursday told Fox News that it raised $98.9 million during the July-September quarter of fundraising. That’s nearly four times the $25.7 million the group raised during this year’s second quarter.
Hours earlier, the pro-Biden outside group Priorities USA announced that it hauled in $92.4 million during the third quarter, nearly three times the $36.6 million the group raised the previous three months.
America First is made up of the America First Action super PAC and the nonprofit America First Policies.
“We had a huge third quarter raising nearly $100 million,” America First chair Linda McMahon told Fox News. “The overwhelming support shows the momentum for Donald J. Trump as we enter the last 33 days of this campaign. We have already dedicated $106 million in independent expenditures in battleground states this cycle, and will not let up going into the final month.”
The group says it’s currently up with TV ads in the key battleground states of Pennsylvania, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Georgia.
