WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Trump’s campaign says it raised $80 million in July to support his bid as well as the Republican Party.
The numbers mark a significant upswing since May, when Trump was badly outraised by Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. He now has $37 million cash-on-hand.
Clinton raised $63 million in July for her campaign, as well as $26 million for the Democratic National Committee and state parties, bringing her total monthly fundraising to about $90 million.
Trump’s $80 million includes approximately $64 million raised through digital and direct mail operations, the campaign says.
Trump is leaning on small donors to finance the bulk of his presidential run.
He’s also continuing to invest his own money into his campaign, contributing another $2 million last month.
Campaign finance chair Steven Mnuchin says the campaign has received contributions from more than 1 million donors to date.
