Listen: America, Jake Tapper And Reagan Library discussed on Hugh Hewitt
"Raised thirty million dollars in the first quarter of twenty. Eighteen. Dwarfing Bernie Sanders and everybody else. Ten times as much as fellow New Yorker Kirsten gillibrand just a stunning amount of money. The Republican National Committee rate forty five million dollars. Wait till the house. Rolls out its new stuff. The Republican base is underestimated the conservative base is underestimated and how much money they will roll out. I am not talking game of thrones this morning because I didn't see it. I got back to late from our event at in seamy valley last night at the Reagan library with Dennis Prager and Allistair Begg. Too. Great, intellectual. It was all about the allergy. It's called asking you ask a gentile. And I'm moderated it in. The crowd was close to nine hundred was easily eight fifty in every seat was packed and wonderful welcome at the Reagan library talking shop with the director of the Reagan foundation as I've been becoming the director of the Nixon foundation presidency.
