Financial projections for the President’s Dinner tonight confirm that Republican confidence in the president is in a state of collapse.
The National Republican Congressional Committee’s (NRCC) fundraising goal is $7.5 million, which is half what was raised last year.
But to reach this lesser goal, each individual lawmaker has been asked to raise the same amount as 12 months ago. In other words, the NRCC is assuming lawmakers won’t be either willing or able to hit the targets they managed last year.
