The Republican National Committee has reached a new level in off-year summer fundraising with the $10.1 million sum it raised in June.
In a statement released Monday, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said the "record-breaking fundraising shows the enthusiasm for putting the White House back into Republican hands."
The committee's June figures point to a great deal of grassroots support. Ninety-nine percent of the donations it's received have been for $200 or less with an average donation of $79, according to its latest report.
With $55.4 million raised so far and $16.1 million cash on hand, Priebus says the RNC has been able to launch a number of new initiatives "designed to bring more people into the political process and connect them with the Republican Party."
