The Republican National Committee managed to raise a whopping $11 million in the month of May, the organization said Monday.

The organization has far exceeded the Democratic National Committee in terms of fundraising this election cycle with a total of $155.8 million thus far – taking in nearly $50 million more than the DNC.

“The resources we’ve raised this cycle have allowed us to continue building the best-staffed, most wide-reaching, and most data-driven ground game in our party’s history,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “Our years-long commitment to building a robust, permanent field organization in battleground states means we’ve had a 148-week head start on Hillary Clinton and the DNC, who are only now assembling a General Election ground game.”

The committee reports 90 percent of donations have been $200 or less.

The party currently has $19.9 million cash on hand, which it will likely need due to the huge money gap between presumed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who has $42 million on hand to Trump’s meager $1.3 million.
