5 Takeaways From the Latest Campaign Finance Reports

The Republican committees included in this tally are the Republican National Committee, the party’s two congressional campaign arms — the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee — as well as the super PAC focused on the party’s House candidates, the Congressional Leadership Fund, and the one helping its Senate candidates, the Senate Leadership Fund.

The Democratic committees included in this analysis are the Democratic National Committee, the party’s two congressional campaign arms — the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee — as well as the super PAC focused on the party’s House candidates, House Majority PAC, and the one helping its Senate candidates, Senate Majority PAC.

Mr. Trump’s campaign was not required to file a finance report on Thursday, because he is not up for election next month. But his fund-raising appeal trickled down to other committees that are directly involved in the midterms.

His campaign committees, which have raised a remarkable $106 million since his election, have transferred more than $22 million to the Republican National Committee, or R.N.C., over the course of the election cycle, according to the filings. And Mr. Trump’s campaign said it transferred another $3 million to the R.N.C. this week, which is not reflected in the filings, and planned to begin a $6 million television and digital midterm advertising campaign on Monday that will run through Election Day.

The R.N.C., in turn, has transferred nearly $10 million to the party’s congressional campaign arms, the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee, according to Thursday’s filings. That doesn’t include another $3.5 million it reportedly transferred to each committee this month.

By contrast, the Democratic National Committee, which has lagged significantly behind the R.N.C. in fund-raising, has transferred only $2.4 million to the party’s House campaign arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, most of which came this month.
