While Donald Trump and the Republican establishment may not see eye to eye, they have little choice but to curry favor with him.
The reason? His spectacular abilities as a fundraiser.
Every Republican who intends to rely on the party for financial help during next year’s congressional races better be thankful for Mr. Trump. That’s because Trump is the reason the Republican National Committee has managed to raise $75 million in the first 6 months of this year. Compare that with the fact that, in Obama’s first 6 months, the Democratic National Committee had only raised half that!
Because of Trump’s popularity with his base, they have been willing to donate more money than ever before. In fact, the party raised more cash online in the first 6 months of 2017 than it did in the entire of 2016!
And the RNC is 100% loyal the Trump. RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, who happens to be Mitt Romney’s niece, has said “[t]he American people put him in office to accomplish his agenda.” And while he’s at odds with some GOP establishment, the ones who are coming up for re-election won’t openly defy him.
They absolutely need him. I’m not sure what that says about them. Or maybe I am. And it’s not pretty.
