Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio will report bringing in more than $6.2 million in the second quarter across three committees, according to fundraising figures provided first to CQ Roll Call.
In that haul, Boehner raised $871,000 for his re-election, $5 million for his nationally focused joint fundraising committee, and $300,000 for his leadership PAC.
Boehner transferred $3.7 million of the funds raised between April 1 and June 30 to the National Republican Congressional Committee, which is tasked with preserving the House GOP’s majority. The NRCC is currently lagging behind its counterpart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, in the money race for the midterms.
Boehner will also report more than $1.9 million in cash on hand for his re-election campaign, Friends of John Boehner. He spent some of those funds ahead of the May primary, when he won renomination with more than two-thirds of the vote.
Boehner is a central fundraising figure in his party and helped raise millions more during appearances at events for members, candidates and the NRCC.
“If Republicans are going to maximize opportunities this November, we’ve got to have the resources to match the other side,” said Cory Fritz, Boehner’s campaign spokesman. “Speaker Boehner is ‘all-in’ for our members and candidates.”
The second quarter covers April 1 through June 30. Fundraising reports for this period are due to the Federal Election Committee by Tuesday evening.
