More Than 40 GOP Incumbents Outraised in Q1

And at least 15 Republicans trailed a Democratic opponent in cash on hand.

April 16, 2018, 11:14 a.m.

First-quarter fundraising reports were due Sunday night for the period ranging from Jan. 1 to March 31. Hotline found more than 40 incumbents who were outraised by one or more Democratic or independent challengers. (Note that some of the Pennsylvania members who were outraised found themselves in competitive districts, with new challengers, in mid-February—halfway through the quarter—thanks to court-ordered redistricting.)

The list:

Don Young (ALASKA AT-LARGE)
French Hill (AR-02)
Doug LaMalfa (CA-01)
Tom McClintock (CA-04)
Paul Cook (CA-08)
Steve Knight (CA-25)
Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48)
Rob Woodall (GA-07)
Mike Bost (IL-12)
Randy Hultgren (IL-14)
Trey Hollingsworth (IN-09)
Rod Blum (IA-01)
Steve King (IA-04)
Andy Barr (KY-06)
Jack Bergman (MI-01)
Fred Upton (MI-06)
Tim Walberg (MI-07)
Mike Bishop (MI-08)
Jason Lewis (MN-02)
Tom MacArthur (NJ-03)
Leonard Lance (NJ-07)
Robert Pittenger (NC-09)
Ted Budd (NC-13)
Dan Donovan (NY-11)
Claudia Tenney (NY-22)
Steve Chabot (OH-01)
Bob Gibbs (OH-07)
Mike Turner (OH-10)
Dave Joyce (OH-14)
Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01)
Scott Perry (PA-10)
Lloyd Smucker (PA-11)
Mike Kelly (PA-16)
Mark Sanford (SC-01)
Scott DesJarlais (TN-04)
Will Hurd (TX-23)
John Carter (TX-31)
Brian Babin (TX-36)
Tom Garrett (VA-05)
Dave Brat (VA-07)
David McKinley (WV-01)
Glenn Grothman (WI-01)

And the following 15 Republicans trailed at least one opponent in cash on hand: McClintock; Rohrabacher; King; Bergman; Bishop; Pittenger; Budd; Donovan; Tenney; Garrett; Grothman; and Reps. Duncan Hunter (CA-50); John Faso (NY-19); Ralph Norman (SC-05), and Keith Rothfus (PA-17)*. (Hotline reporting)

*Rothfus’s opponent, Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA 18), outraised him as well, but most of Lamb’s fundraising was for a special election in a different district, and Lamb didn’t make it clear he would run in the new 17th District until mid-March.

Trump Signs Border Deal
3 days ago
THE LATEST

Trump Declares National Emergency

THE DETAILS

"President Donald Trump on Friday declared a state of emergency on the southern border and immediately direct $8 billion to construct or repair as many as 234 miles of a border barrier. The move — which is sure to invite vigorous legal challenges from activists and government officials — comes after Trump failed to get the $5.7 billion he was seeking from lawmakers. Instead, Trump agreed to sign a deal that included just $1.375 for border security."

COULD SOW DIVISION AMONG REPUBLICANS
House Will Condemn Emergency Declaration
3 days ago
THE DETAILS

"House Democrats are gearing up to pass a joint resolution disapproving of President Trump’s emergency declaration to build his U.S.-Mexico border wall, a move that will force Senate Republicans to vote on a contentious issue that divides their party. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Thursday evening in an interview with The Washington Post that the House would take up the resolution in the coming days or weeks. The measure is expected to easily clear the Democratic-led House, and because it would be privileged, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would be forced to put the resolution to a vote that he could lose."

Where Will the Emergency Money Come From?

THE DETAILS

"ABC News has learned the president plans to announce on Friday his intention to spend about $8 billion on the border wall with a mix of spending from Congressional appropriations approved Thursday night, executive action and an emergency declaration. A senior White House official familiar with the plan told ABC News that $1.375 billion would come from the spending bill Congress passed Thursday; $600 million would come from the Treasury Department's drug forfeiture fund; $2.5 billion would come from the Pentagon's drug interdiction program; and through an emergency declaration: $3.5 billion from the Pentagon's military construction budget."

TRUMP SAYS HE WILL SIGN
House Passes Funding Deal
3 days ago
THE DETAILS

"The House passed a massive border and budget bill that would avert a shutdown and keep the government funded through the end of September. The Senate passed the measure earlier Thursday. The bill provides $1.375 billion for fences, far short of the $5.7 billion President Trump had demanded to fund steel walls. But the president says he will sign the legislation, and instead seek to fund his border wall by declaring a national emergency."
