The Center for Public Integrity tracked one donor’s contributions to the Trump Victory joint fundraising committee to follow where they went. Julianna Holt’s contributions to Trump Victory were split among the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee and state Republican parties from coast to coast, distributed according to an agreement between the parties and campaign finance limits set by law.
But soon after, often within days, 18 of those parties sent the proceeds to the Republican National Committee and one sent it to another state party, effectively resulting in more of her dollars flowing to the national party.
