Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) this month transferred $7 million to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the organization responsible for electing Republicans to the U.S. House of Representatives, as part of his ongoing efforts to bolster GOP election war chests. The sum is the most ever raised by any speaker, and is just part of the $16.4 million Ryan has given to the NRCC in the last three months.
Ryan has raised nearly $60 million for the NRCC since becoming Speaker of the House in late 2015, making good on his promise to GOP colleagues that he’d help maintain and grow the Republican majority. Such efforts are critical to ensuring conservative legislation passes through the chamber and is sent to the Senate for approval.
