Ever time House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California, announces new fundraising news, things seem to just keep getting better and better.
Just after McCarthy’s massive fundraising effort in 2021, he raked in another $9.5 MILLION on January 19 alone at a fundraiser in Washington, DC.
One hundred people attended the event, held at the Trump Hotel in downtown DC. The incredible number absolutely annihilates the previous record McCarthy had set at a DC fundraiser, which was just $350,000.
McCarthy, who raised a record $72.4 million in 2021, is hoping to regain the majority in the House and end liberal rule in Washington.
A report from Politico detailed the event:
The event, which was held at the Trump Hotel, drew a little over 100 attendees. More than 50 corporate PACs were represented as well as an array of major individual donors, many of whom flew in from out of town. Organizers began sending out invitations to the fundraiser in early January. Attendees were asked to contribute up to $100,000 apiece, with proceeds going to the minority leader’s campaign and leadership PAC accounts as well as the National Republican Congressional Committee.
The event was initially to be held at Mastro’s Steakhouse but was eventually moved to the Trump Hotel to accommodate the crowd. McCarthy spoke for around 30 minutes and introduced a multitude of ranking committee members who came out for the event.
The event was hosted by Jeff Miller, a longtime McCarthy friend and fundraiser, and was co-hosted by Sam Geduldig, a veteran Washington lobbyist, and John Stipicevic, a lobbyist and former McCarthy adviser.
