NRCC Annual Dinner Raises $7 Million

Posted March 23, 2010 at 6:14pm

The National Republican Congressional Committee raised more than $7 million through its annual dinner, held Tuesday evening at the National Building Museum.

The dinner is traditionally one of the committee’s biggest single sources of fundraising for the year. This year’s event, featuring Fox News host Sean Hannity as the keynote speaker, topped last year’s $6 million haul.

The NRCC outraised the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for the first time in several months during February but still trails significantly in cash on hand — $19.8 million to $6.1 million.
