As midterms approach, GOP online fundraising platform announces nearly $3 billion raised in just three years

WinRed is marking the third anniversary since its founding by announcing it has raised nearly $3 billion dollars for more than 5,000 Republican campaigns as it plans to continue making big impacts in the 2022 midterm elections.

With exclusive data provided to Fox News Digital, the GOP fundraising platform touted its outperformance of ActBlue, its Democratic rival, and outlined the success it saw in various areas as a fundraising body.

“We have exceeded expectations, but have a lot more to do,” said Gerrit Lansing, president of WinRed, in a statement provided to Fox News Digital. “WinRed looks forward to helping retake majorities all across America in November and continuing to keep the pedal down on expanding our products and services.”

WINRED RAISES $170M IN FIRST QUARTER, UP FROM SAME TIME PERIOD PREVIOUS 2 YEARS

WinRed describes itself as the “premiere online fundraising technology platform utilized by Republicans,” and was founded in 2019 with the purpose of combating Democrats’ then-advantage in online fundraising, driven by ActBlue.

According to WinRed, it processed its first $2 billion within 15 months of its founding, a feat it says took ActBlue 15 years to achieve. The group also said it raised Republicans 44% more funds because of its “unique” features, such as donor-specific accounts, allowing candidates to fundraise together, and its website’s candidate directory.

In the data provided to Fox News Digital, WinRed touted its processing of $116.9 million in funds for campaign merchandise, such as yard signs and t-shirts, and said more than 2,300 state and local campaigns had raised $142.6 million through its platform.

In addition, it said it had saved its campaigns “millions of dollars” so far this election year by offering lower processing fees than ActBlue.

Aside from individual candidates, a number of Republican committees utilize Win Red’s services, including the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the Republican State Leadership Committee, the Republican Governors Association, and the Save America JFC.

WinRed’s reported success comes as Republicans are poised to win control of the House of Representatives, and potentially the Senate, in November amid a massive drop in President Biden’s approval rating, as well as greater trust in the party to handle issues like crime and inflation.
