McCarthy raised $62 million to support Republican majority in the House

Wednesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced he had raised $62 million, or $21.7 million this quarter, to increase the Republican majority in the House.

According to a report by Breitbart News, McCarthy outlined his success in a written statement:

"As we continue to build on the historic successes of this Republican majority the campaign to protect and expand the House majority is gaining momentum," McCarthy said.

"Over the past six months, we have delivered historic spending cuts, worked to defend the border, and continued to investigate the Biden administration’s detrimental actions to the American public.

"The American people are responding to these accomplishments with an outpouring of support to advance this mission, and we plan on delivering for the country.

The speaker of the House recently told the Washington bureau chief of Breitbart News that he believes former president Donald Trump is "stronger today than he was in 2016."

He informed Breitbart News, "As usual, the media is attempting to drive a wedge between President Trump and House Republicans as our committees are holding Biden’s DOJ accountable for their two-tiered levels of justice," McCarthy went on.

"The only reason Biden is using his weaponized federal government to go after President Trump is because he is Biden’s strongest political opponent, as polling continues to show.

“Just look at the numbers this morning — Trump is stronger today than he was in 2016,” McCarthy added.

A late June NBC News report indicated that despite Trump's recent indictments, his polling numbers have increased making him more favored among Republicans.

The former President Donald Trump's margin over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the rest of the Republican presidential field has grown since Trump's most recent indictment on federal criminal charges.

Still, the survey reveals that half of Republican primary voters would consider a leader other than Trump, indicating a potential opening for a rival to capture the GOP nomination, despite the fact that six out of ten Republicans believe the indictments and investigations against Trump are politically motivated.

“For the first time in history, a former president has been indicted, and we can’t find a marker in this survey that it’s had an impact with his standing,” said Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies, who conducted this survey with Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates.

“Not only are they sticking with Trump post-federal indictment,” Horwitt said of Republican voters, “there are several signs that his support is growing or others are losing ground, particularly Ron DeSantis.”
