WINNING: Trump hauls in $800k for New Jersey’s MacArthur

Trump, flanked by Chris Christie and Rep. Tom MacArthur, headlining a 2017 Bedminster, New Jersey fundraiser.

In a word?

It was ‘yuge’, Save Jerseyans.

According to our sources, President Donald Trump‘s closed-to-the-press Sunday fundraiser for Rep. Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster raised approximately $800,000 for the two-term Republican congressman who spearheaded the push for the America Health Care Act (AHCA).

That’s big even by presidential fundraising standards.

A point of comparison for this cycle: It took Josh Gottheimer, NJ-05’s new Clinton-connected Democrat congressman, a full three months to raise $750,000.

MacArthur just did it — plus a little more — in one day.
