The Republican National Committee (RNC) has reached out to donors as it seeks to raise at least $60 million to fund legal challenges brought by Trump over the results of the presidential election, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters news agency.

The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in several states following the November 3 election pitting the president against former Vice President Joe Biden.

“They want $60 million,” a Republican donor who received solicitations from the RNC told the news agency.

Both campaigns have reportedly been raising money in preparation for possible prolonged legal fights.
