NRCC Posts Strong October Fundraising After Boehner Steps Down

Despite his committee being outraised by about $1.5 million, NRSC Chairman Roger Wicker remains optimistic that fundraising will pick up once the crowded presidential field winnows.

“Once the field gets a little more settled on the presidential side, I think people will realize that in order for any president to be successful he needs to have a Senate to go along with the almost-certain win we’re going to have in the House,” the Mississippi Republican told CQ Roll Call Thursday.

“There are a lot of demands on funds out there with the presidential candidates, all of them still raising money — most of them with a super PAC and then there are these independent Super PACS,” Wicker said.
