White House-backed PAC Raises $4.7 Million in First Quarter of 2018
America First Action, the lead White House-backed outside organization supporting President Trump's agenda, raised nearly $5 million in the first quarter of 2018, according to a filing shared with the Washington Examiner.
Combined with its nonprofit advocacy arm America First Policies, the pair of pro-Trump groups hauled in $13.6 million between January and April, putting them on track to meet last year's haul of $26 million. Both groups were founded just days after Trump entered the Oval Office.
The latest numbers comes less than a week after President Trump dined with supporters of America First Action at a private residence in Virginia, where several top Trump donors were in attendance.
"President Trump is leading an American comeback, and our donors want to do their part to help keep the momentum going," America First president Brian Walsh said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
"They have delivered, just as the President has delivered time and again on his promise to make America great again," Walsh said.
