RNC Raises $35 Million, Breaks August Fundraising Record

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The Republican National Committee raised more than $35.6 million in August, marking the best August on record for the RNC, a spokesperson with the committee confirms to ABC News.

Both the RNC and the campaigns will file their monthly fundraising reports on Thursday, but this also marks a record breaking cycle for the RNC. They have raised more than $193 million, a record, although the Obama campaign and the DNC did best the Republicans in the most recent fundraising month.

“We’ve enjoyed a lot of support from voters across America and it’s helping us run a top-notch get out the vote effort that is going toe-to-toe with Obama,” RNC spokesperson Kirsten Kukowski said.

This news comes just one day after we learned the Romney campaign had to take out a $20 million dollar line of credit last month, marking the first time in the cycle Romney’s campaign was in debt. They are $11 million in debt after borrowing the $20 million from the Bank of Georgetown.

Earlier this month, President Obama and the Democratic National Committee reported raising over $114 million in August together. They bested the Romney campaign and the RNC, whose joint total was $111 million.
