The latest fundraising numbers are out and it was good news for House Republicans looking to get back into the majority in 2022:
The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $45.4 million in the second quarter of 2021, the most it has ever raised in three months of a non-election year, as Republicans seek to take over the House in 2022.https://t.co/yuSLcgSngi

This leaves the NRCC with $55 million cash on hand to $44 million for Dems:
New: The NRCC raised $45 million, including $20 million in June, in Q2 and had $55 million cash on hand.
The DCCC, which announced its Q2 totals on Friday, said it raised $36.5 million in Q2, including $14.4 million in June, and reported $44 million cash on hand.

But fundraising was good all around. Anti-Trump sentiment didn’t hurt Liz Cheney or Adam Kinzinger, for example:
"Exile in the House GOP is proving extremely lucrative for Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger."

Cheney even outraised Rep. Elise Stefanik who took her old job:
Overlooked: Liz Cheney ($1.88M) comfortably outraised Elise Stefanik ($1.5M) in the new fundraising quarter. https://t.co/42AtL6JTEW

As for Kinzinger, fundraising actually “skyrocketed” post-second impeachment. From Politico:
Kinzinger, who represents a deep-red district in exurban Chicago, never raised more than $350,000 in a single quarter during the 2020 cycle. But during the first three months of 2021 — after his support for the second Trump impeachment — he skyrocketed to $1.1 million.
And if Dems think they can take out Devin Nunes, think again. He has $11.5 million cash on hand:
NEW: @DevinNunes raised $2.7 million in Q-2 counting funds collected by all political committees under his control, inclu his 2022 reelection campaign, which is set to report a $1.1M haul w/ $11.5M in cash on hand. https://t.co/Wq4C0n8h32 @dcexaminer
