Hallie Jackson, an NBC News White House correspondent and anchor for MSNBC, confronted DNC Chairman Tom Perez today and asked him why the DNC had its worst fundraising for the month of April since 2009.
“The DNC, you’ve talked about doubling the budget from $50 million and $100 million this year, but the DNC had its worst fundraising in April since 2009 -- it just posted,” said Jackson. “Where does the extra $50 million going to come from?”
Perez said, “Well again, I got there on March 1 [as new DNC chairman]. And so I was the first to say, we have a lot of rebuilding to do.”
The DNC raised $438,000 less in May than in April 2017. The political group brought in $4.7 million in April, according to the FEC.
