This morning the Republican National Committee announced that President Donald Trump raised $24.8 million in the 24 hours surrounding the announcement of his 2020 reelection campaign, over four times as much raised by Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and Sen. Bernie Sanders in the first 24 hours of their campaigns.
Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced via Twitter that President Trump “has raised a record breaking $24.8 [million] in less than 24 hours for his re-election,” adding that “the enthusiasm across the country for this President us unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!”

According to the numbers, McDaniel is right.
Big League Politics has extensively reported about the Democrats and their various war chests. O’Rourke and Sanders lead the field by far, especially when it came to fundraising in the first 24 hours. O’Rourke, noted Irishman, raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign, narrowly edging out Sanders who raised $5.9 million. Both numbers were thought to be mind boggling and record breaking when they were reported.
In fact, both Democrats are in first place when it comes to fundraising within their own party by a large margin. Big League Politics reported earlier this year that in terms of fundraising in the first 24 hours, the closest to O’Rourke and Biden are Sen. Kamala Harris with $1.5 million and Sen. Amy Klobuchar with $1 million.
Some candidates, particularly Sen. Elizabeth Warren have proved to be huge fundraising disappointments. The 1/1024 Native American congresswoman raised less than $300,000 in her first 24 hours.
Of course, fundraising does not necessarily equal enthusiasm. O’Rourke is now lucky if he gets 40 people to attend his rallies, and Sanders is lagging behind the current establishment favorite, former vice president Joe Biden, in virtually every poll.
It remains to be seen if Biden, who recently stroked a 10-year-old girl and complimented her looks, will actually prove to be electable or if he will doom his own candidacy.
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
