Trump Raises $33.5 Million, Mostly in Blue-State California

SAN FRANCISCO—Former President Donald Trump’s western U.S. campaign sweep started with a $12 million haul in Democrat-dominated San Francisco, then scooped up $21.5 million more at three other fundraisers in the region.

A senior Trump campaign official released those figures, totaling $33.5 million, to The Epoch Times on June 10. That was a day after the former president capped a four-day string of campaign stops in the battleground states of Arizona and Nevada, with California in between.

The San Francisco total more than doubled the “realistic goal” of $5 million set beforehand, pollster Rich Baris told The Epoch Times on June 11.

These fundraising results and other indicators show the former president has made some significant inroads in California. “It will be closer but he sure ain’t carrying it,” Mr. Baris said about the former president’s chances for winning the state in the Nov. 5 election. But he cautioned: “If Hispanic vote trends continue to favor Republicans, it will eventually become a real problem for Democrats.”
