House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) raked in $5.3 million during the latest third-quarter filing, over a year before the midterm general elections.
This campaign haul brings Scalise’s year-to-date total to nearly $21.5 million, according to the Hill. The report noted $1.9 million of the Republicans campaign haul would go to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the campaign arm for the House Republicans.
“Taking back the House has NEVER been more important than it is right now,” Scalise said in a statement. “I’m doing everything I can – connecting with donors all across the country and raising money directly for battleground Members – to ensure that we have the resources needed to win next fall.”
