Trump Lost the 2020 Election. He Has Raised $207.5 Million Since.

The filings also showed that Mr. Biden’s campaign committee, despite contribution limits, had raised more than $1 billion since he began his campaign, though he spent almost all of it, ending with $1.5 million in the bank. The Democratic National Committee had $23.9 million in the bank as of Nov. 23, and Mr. Biden’s shared committees with the party had another $66.5 million.

Some big donors contributed to Mr. Trump after Election Day, with roughly $5 million coming into a joint account with the party for large contributors after Nov. 3, including $150,000 from Kelcy Warren, the energy executive, and $260,000 from his wife, Amy, on Nov. 5, as well as $250,000 from Kenny and Lisa Troutt of Texas on Nov. 9.

The R.N.C. report showed it ended the period with $58.8 million cash on hand — a large sum for a party at the end of a campaign. As Mr. Trump has contested the results in multiple locations, the party had spent more than $6 million on legal bills, with $1.4 million going to the Jones Day law firm, $1.3 million to King & Spalding and more than $920,000 to Consovoy McCarthy.

The Trump campaign committee reported more than $8.7 million in recount-related expenses, with a $3 million payment to Wisconsin’s election commission representing the largest fee. He has formed an extensive legal team, including C. Boyden Gray, a top Republican contributor, who was paid $114,000 for legal consulting.

The party’s biggest expense was $42.4 million to a limited liability company, Digital Consulting Group, with a limited public footprint. The party has made its third payment of $666,666 to Reuters News & Media Inc. for “legal proceedings” related to intellectual property, for a total of $2 million that the party and company have previously declined to discuss.

The filings also showed that the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam Adelson, spent nearly $220 million on the 2020 election, with $90 million going to a pro-Trump super PAC, $70 million to a Senate G.O.P. super PAC and $50 million to a House Republican super PAC, plus millions more to various committees.
