That IS a lot on campaign money…
The guy started raising money ten minutes after he got sworn in….
No Democrat comes near it….
The Trump campaign told the AP on Sunday that it raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, bringing its total cash on hand to $40.8 million.
Why it matters: The AP notes that this is “an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign,” especially with the Republican National Committee also raising $45.8 million in the first quarter — bringing the pro-Trump effort’s total cash on hand to $82 million. 99% of donations were $200 or less, with an average contribution of $34.26.
