The Republican National Committee will announce record September fundraising numbers Tuesday morning, obtained first by the Daily Caller.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel will announce that the RNC raised $71.8 million in September, marking the best September fundraising haul in RNC history. The RNC tells the Daily Caller they have raised 11 times the amount of money online than they did in 2016.

“President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot have inspired a grassroots juggernaut of volunteers that Democrats can’t even dream of,” McDaniel said to the Daily Caller. “Thanks to early investments in field, digital and data, the RNC has built the largest political operation in history, built to turn out voters with surgical precision. As we reach the final sprint of this campaign, the RNC is well equipped with the resources needed to win.”
