Boehner Gives NRCC $3 Million in October

House Minority Leader and potential Speaker to be John Boehner (R-Ohio) gave big to the National Republican Congressional Committee in October in an effort to boost the committee's efforts to take back the House.

In sum, Boehner gave $3 million the NRCC, party sources tell Hotline On Call. That breaks down to $1.9 million from his own re-election fund and $1.1 million from the Boehner for Speaker committee that was former earlier this year.

The transfers show that Boehner, who has always been an effective fundraiser, has been particularly successful this year in marshaling resources to pave his way to the Speaker's gavel.

In a statement, NRCC communications director Ken Spain expressed NRCC Chair Pete Sessions' (R-Texas) gratitude.

"Chairman Sessions is grateful for everything Leader Boehner has done on behalf of the NRCC and House Republicans in our effort to win the majority this cycle," Spain said. "He has led by example."

Boehner has given the NRCC $3.7 million over the course of the cycle from his re-election committee, Friends of John Boehner.

The Boehner for Speaker committee was set up as a joint fundraising committee with the NRCC back in August. It has been effective at raking in money. In the third quarter, the committee raised $1.9 million.

The transfers to the NRCC helped the committee report raising $16 million in October, a one-month record for the committee.
