Donald Trump portrays himself as an indispensable cash resource for fellow Republicans up and down the ballot.

But an Associated Press review of campaign finance filings shows that while Trump is pulling in donor checks, most of his fellow Republicans are still waiting for their cut. And the GOP nominee has a lot of work to do if he wants to match the amount of money Mitt Romney gave to his party four years ago.

Federal Election Commission filings show that in July the Republican National Committee received at most $10.6 million from Trump’s joint fundraising operation that could be used to help Republicans win elections. At this time four years ago, Mitt Romney’s similar joint fundraising efforts sent the RNC about $25 million.
