Boom: Another Ryan fundraising record for GOP, $32.7M in off-year

 

House Speaker Paul Ryan continued his record-setting fundraising pace in the spring, raking in as much in the off-year effort as he did in the contentious 2016 election period — and he still goes home on weekends to fish with his kids and meet with constituents.

 

To put that in perspective, over the the same period last year, during the heated election to retain control of the House, Ryan sent $22.4 million to NRCC.

And when the $3.3 million the NRCC raised through Ryan signed fundraising email and snail mail is included, his 2017 total for the GOP campaign arm is higher, $25 million.

“The sustained support for Paul Ryan and the Republican agenda reflects the desire in this country to get things done,” said Kevin Seifert, the top political aide to Ryan and executive director of Team Ryan.

“People want to see results and that’s what House Republicans, under Paul Ryan’s leadership, are providing. Speaker Ryan and House Republicans remain committed to delivering for the American people and Team Ryan is going to keep raising the resources to help our members and candidates get that message out,” he added.
