Lara Trump announces RNC 'had the largest digital fundraising weekend since 2020'

"Much more to come…we are just getting started!”

Lara Trump, the new co-chair of the Republican National Committee, announced Wednesday that the GOP “had the largest digital fundraising weekend since 2020.”

The daughter-in-law to former President Trump posted on X, “I am proud to announce that last weekend the GOP had the largest digital fundraising weekend since 2020. Much more to come…we are just getting started!”

Lara Trump did not specify the amount but the announcement was good news for the cash-strapped GOP. The party’s previous chair Ronna McDaniel had come under fire for lavish spending while winning few races.

In an interview with Newsmax, Trump said, "I think that the change in leadership at the RNC has really inspired a lot of people to give. This past weekend we had our best fundraising weekend since 2020."

"People understand, this is a must-win election and I think they're very confident in the team we now have between myself as co-chair and Michael Whatley as chairman."

Trump said she personally had received multiple phone calls over a 36-hour span from people who wanted to contribute "maxed out" donations to the committee.

Earlier this week, over 60 people were fired from the RNC after co-chairs Lara Trump and Michael Whatley started cleaning house.

Lara Trump and Whatley have been hand-picked by Donald Trump to lead the party after McDaniel was urged to step aside, as it became clear that she was not looking forward to the prospect of Donald Trump securing the party's presidential nomination as he sought a second term in the White House. 

Following Joe Biden and Donald Trump both becoming their respective party’s presumptive nominees on Tuesday evening, Lara Trump, urged Republicans to use "legal ballot harvesting" to defeat Democrats in November.

She said, "We’ve been playing checkers, and the Democrats have been playing chess. Unfortunately, we don’t have one day of voting, we don’t have paper ballots, we don’t have voter ID everywhere. So we have to play the hand that we’re dealt."

"We need to be doing legal ballot harvesting," she added noting that this was "something that has never been done by the RNC, but I can promise you will be a huge part of what we’re planning to do."

"And then come Election Day, and you’ll see that, I think, it’s not just about having poll watchers. It’s about having trained poll watchers and lawyers at locations around the country as necessary. And these are people who will be trained and able to physically count how many ballots are coming in. And how many ballots are going out."
