The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the campaign arm of the House Republican Conference, announced on Thursday that it had raised a “record-shattering $12.6 million” in May. In an emailed press release, the NRCC highlighted a “committee record” for May of an election year, surpassing the previous record set by the rivaling Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) of $11.9 million in May, Breitbart News reported.

“Growing the majority is a team effort, and we smashed this fundraising record with the help of everyday Americans and our incredible leadership team,” said NRCC Chairman Richard Hudson (R-NC) before taking aim at the far left. “Families don’t feel physically or financially secure with extreme Democrats running the country; they’re opening up their wallets to ensure there is no chance Democrats continue to wreak havoc on their daily lives next year.”

The NRCC received a significant boost at the end of the month following the verdict in former President Donald Trump’s Manhattan business records trial on May 30. According to Punchbowl News, it raised $300,000 on the day of the conviction, marking the best online fundraising day of the cycle. For comparison, on the day that Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) secured the gavel, the committee raised $175,000.

On June 6, Hudson informed the Washington Reporter that the NRCC had received “well over $1 million” in online fundraising in the days following the verdict. Almost a third of these donors were contributing to the NRCC for the first time. The committee has reported raising $147.4 million this cycle, which is nearly $10 million more than its fundraising figures at the same point in the 2020 cycle, Breitbart added.

The NRCC currently has $64.9 million compared to the $78.8 million the DCCC announced it had as of Tuesday.
