Republicans Who Impeached Trump Outraise Opponents

0

There has been an increase in Republican re-election bids among those who supported impeachment of former President Trump or voted for his conviction last year, according to FEC filings.

Eight Republicans who voted for impeachment or conviction who are up for re-election this year received more money than those seeking to remove them from office, according to papers made public this week.

For the final quarter of 2019, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., raked up $1.97 million to raise her total for the year to nearly $6.5 million.
Just over $745,000 has been raised so far this year by Trump-backed contender Harriet Hageman, who began the race against Cheney in September.

 

 

 

 

 

 


It was mirrored in other ethnic groups.
Republican Reps. Peter Meijer of Michigan and Fred Upton of Michigan each raised more than five times as much money as their Trump-endorsed primary challengers from October through December.
Joe Kent’s Republican challenger was out-funded in Washington state by Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler who raised $422,000 compared to his opponent’s $297,000.

Last quarter, Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, surpassed Kelly Tshibaka’s fundraising total in the Senate by more than two-to-one.
Despite Trump’s support, Tshibaka was unable to match Murkowski’s 2016 fundraising total of $5.4 million.

In contests where Trump has not endorsed a primary opponent or has only recently extended his blessing, the trend also played out.
Republican Dan Newhouse and David Valado, both from Washington state, are surpassing their rivals in the fundraising race, while state Rep. Russell Fry, who Donald Trump endorsed on Tuesday, slightly outpaces Rep. Tom Rice, a South Carolina Republican, in the polls.
