URGENT - Trump campaign to report raising over $30 million in first quarter
(CNN) -- President Donald Trump's re-election campaign raised more than $30 million in the first fundraising quarter of 2019, the campaign confirmed Sunday to CNN. Almost 99% of donations were $200 or less, the campaign said, with an average donation of $34. 26. The campaign's director of communications, Tim Murtaugh, said the re-election effort now has $40. 8 million on hand, a substantial figure. For comparison, President Barack Obama's re-election effort had nearly 20 times less (a little under $2 million) at this point in 2011. Trump officially filed his re-election campaign paperwork on the day of his inauguration. Obama formally launched his in April 2011.
