Rep. Tom MacArthur got the call late on a Saturday night: President Trump would host a fundraiser for him the following weekend. By Friday, the New Jersey Republican had raised $825,000 for the event.
It's a staggering amount for a rank and file House member, even one with the New Jersey and New York donor communities to draw from. MacArthur said it totaled far more than he's ever raised before for a single event — and that it couldn't have happened without Trump, who hosted the June event at his private golf club in Bedminster, N.J.
