Donald Trump portrays himself as an indispensable cash resource for fellow Republicans up and down the ballot.The state features a critical Senate race this year, but Trump has all but ignored the Ohio state party.In July, the Republican National Committee received $18.1 million from joint fundraising efforts with Trump. RNC chairman Reince Priebus defends Trump as a strong fundraising partner for Republicans. Trump has made the same argument.The Trump campaign said that as of Aug. 1 his victory accounts contained $37 million to be disbursed to his campaign, the RNC and other partners.Beyond the RNC, Trump could be helping state parties directly.Raising money for others could help smooth things over, and that may be a reason Trump frequently talks up his efforts.
