GOP legislators that stood up for Trump see record-breaking fundraising hauls

Though mainstream media outlets and liberal corporate interests have attempted to use January unrest at the Capitol as a means to permanently cancel former President Donald Trump and any legislator unwilling to abandon him, recent fundraising numbers suggest that their efforts may have been in vain.

The Hill reports that multiple Republican lawmakers who supported probes into alleged voter fraud during the 2020 election, as well as those who objected to certifying the results of the Electoral College, have amassed impressive donation totals in the months that followed, even after a series of major corporations pledged to cease contributions of their own.

According to Politico, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), one of the most outspoken opponents of the January election certification process, raised in excess of $3 million in just the first three months of 2021. A haul of that size is especially noteworthy given that during the same time period in the prior election cycle, he raised a mere $43,000.

Conservative firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), the highly controversial lawmaker whose full-throated support of Trump has earned the scorn of colleagues and commentators alike, has also seen tremendous fundraising success so far this year, bringing in $3.2 million in donations through the first quarter, The Hill noted.

Louisiana GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, who vigorously expressed his belief in January that there were “serious questions about the integrity of the electoral process” and was among those House members who objected to the certification of the Electoral College count was expected to announce his own first quarter fundraising success to the eye-watering tune of $7.1 million, according to The Hill.

According to political strategist Matt Gorman, these large donation totals are a harbinger of where the Republican Party’s base stands in the aftermath of such a contentious electoral cycle, saying, according to The Hill, “Normally, a quarter after an election it’s always the slowest. There’s fatigue among donors, but this shows that people are engaged.”

In the aftermath of the Capitol protests, a series of corporate giants including Nike, AT&T, Mariott, and Airbnb announced that they would halt direct monetary donations to any lawmaker who opposed certification of Joe Biden as the 2020 winner. However, as The Hill reported separately last month, many of those enterprises have since skirted those promises by instead making contributions to the House and Senate campaign committees that disperse funds to the very same legislators the companies aimed to sanction.

Also bolstering the fundraising fortunes of GOP lawmakers this year – including those loyal to Trump – is the success of donation platform WinRed, launched in 2019 to serve as the Republican answer to ActBlue, which generated millions for Democrat candidates and progressive causes nationwide.

Amid reports that Trump’s own Save America PAC already has $85 million on hand in advance of the crucial 2022 midterm election season, it seems likely that the former president’s influence on the future direction of the party is assured, whether as a candidate himself or as a kingmaker behind the scenes.

I really feel that Dems are going to see a HUGH decline in supporters. Even Liberals are starting too wake up to all the lies they have been told over the last 4+ years. They are seeing and starting to feel the disaster that this Democratic Administration is doing in the form of gas prices, higher prices at stores and especially these riots that are going on.

They do but we have the Lord God Almighty on our side! Much more powerful than those satan possessed three. They have to pay someone to get vengeance and cheat to win. God just has to think the the thought. They are powerless in comparison.

Biden and Harris are barely keeping their heads above water as it is….and to think, they’ve only been in office less than three months!! That’s what happens when people vote to put dimwits with NO leadership skills into office.

Exactly. I tried to tell all my liberal friends all this would happen if Trump didn’t get a second term. But they laughed me off as a radical right wing nut job conspiracy theorist. And sadly many of them are still asleep at the wheel. They need prayer. Notice I said if Trump didn’t get a second term not if Biden won because Biden didn’t win. He cheated and anyone with an IQ above 50 knows it whether they admit it or not

In the 2020 election cycle I contributed to many Republicans running for the Senate and House of Reps through Win Red. The results of my bets on those legislators was mixed. Then after the second impeachment fiasco I saw way to many Republican lawmakers vote to convict President Trump. Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney was foremost on the list of traitors. Therefore, I am through with giving any contribution to “WinRed.” I will only make my political contribution to Save America PAC which is run and administered by President Trump. Save America will not be helping LIz Cheney. The problem is I do not know how to get my money to Save America. Two months ago I sent a check to Mar-a-Lago addressed to Save America but it has yet to be cashed. If anyone can tell me how to contribute to the Save America PAC, please tell me.

Dictators come and they go and these that have attacked everything we stand for are going to pay the price. The Constitution says we can remove leaders such as theses and dispatch appropriate punishment.

The Democrats pushed away everyone who was moderate. I have even heard that librarians are considering not having a person run for president for the 2024 election. 2022 and 2024 are both going to be everyone vs Liberals.

Hi Samuel

I think that if you go to DonaldJTrump.com that will show you how to donate to his pac or you can donate to just his website, I now use that site only because i dont want Winred to give the people who voted to impeach President Trump any of that money Try it i am sure that it will show you what information you need

If those idiots that voted for that nitwit are starting to have
a case of buyers remorse because they made the worst mistake of
their lives they deserve every consequence that all the good
people have to endure because of their stupidity, what made
them think that Brain Dead Joe was going to be anything more
then a useless tax burden and international fool.? Nearly 50yrs
as a consument Liar,and overrated big mouth that never did a
hard days work in his life.!

AMEN!
Instead of condemning them for realizing they made a mistake with their vote, welcome them across the isle. Ask them what brought them to realize their change of heart.
STOP thinking NEGATIVE. Talk to people about things we have in COMMON…NOT in disagreement.

Or RNCC or RNSC. They divvy the money up too. I figure the best way to avoid the Trump haters getting any cash is simply to donate to individuals like Cruz or Hawley and others that Trump approves.
