Ivanka Trump Smashes Obama's Record with MEGA Fundraising Haul
Rakes in a staggering $35 million for her father, President Trump's election campaign
Ivanka Trump has smashed Barack Obama's fundraising record on the way to raising $35million for the re-election campaign of her father, President Donald Trump, according to reports.
The first daughter, 39, raised $13million during three fundraising events in California and one in Detroit during the final week of October, leading into Election Day, The Hill reported.
Ivanka has been the star of 11 events since October 25, several of which have been fundraisers.
The fundraisers were just some of the 32 events she's hosted since August.
So far, she has raised about $35million in campaign contributions, the Washington Examiner reported.
During an event in Austin in September, Ivanka raised $4.5million in one day.
Ivanka's $4.5m trounced the previous single-day fundraising record of $3.8million, which was set by Obama in 2014.
"Our donors were thrilled to hear directly from Ivanka Trump about the policies her father has delivered on and his vision for the next four years," Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told the Washington Examiner.
The president's campaign has had Ivanka Trump speak specifically to suburban women at her events.
Suburban women have reportedly softened in their Trump support, according to The Hill.
“As a working mother who has dedicated her career to the improvement of women’s lives, Ivanka intrinsically understands the issues facing American families today,” Mercedes Schlapp, a senior adviser for the Trump 2020 Campaign, told Politico.

Ivanka Trump’s fundraising assist has come at a crucial time.
Polls claim the Trump campaign has continued to lag behind that of Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s team.
Biden ended September with $177.3 million cash, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
Meanwhile, President Trump had $63.1 million, NPR reported.
