The committee touted its record fundraising quarter as being “enhanced” by the tremendous growth of the digital program, which raised $2,462,000 from online transportation, or 117% of online fundraising from the first quarter of 2021.
Republican-aligned groups also attracted 10,700 new online donors and made an average online donation of $25.89.
“The American people are fed up with Joe Biden’s failed leadership that has only caused chaos,” said RSLC President Dee Duncan. “This historic quarter of fundraising reflects the enthusiasm we’re seeing across the country for electing state Republicans who can counter Washington’s failed Democratic-controlled agenda.”
In recent months, the RSLC has announced its state legislative goals and pledged to spend more money than ever before in this election cycle.
Last week, the RSLC released a six-figure ad campaign encouraging Americans who regret voting for President Joe Biden and his “return to normal” in 2020 to vote Republican in November.
Do you feel pain at the pump? Anxiety at the grocery store? Angry at not having a say in your child’s education? Fear of crime in your neighborhood?
It’s not your fault! You may be suffering from Biden Remorse.

The ad campaign was part of the group’s larger efforts to pour millions into the November election and set the record straight in Democratic-controlled states such as Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, New York and Washington. .
“Republicans may be firmly positioned on the right side of every major issue, but that’s not stopping liberal billionaires from pumping millions into ballot races and trying to claw their way out of their dire straits,” he said. continued Duncan.
“We need to keep our foot on the accelerator, so we have the resources to stop them as the election looms and the spending begins in earnest,” Duncan added.
