Hillary Clinton raised $70 million in June but it was Trump‘s first full month collecting checks from political donors
Trump and the Republican National Committee raised $25 million during 22 events in June and the final week of May
Clinton’s money advantage has allowed her to run 22,000 anti-Trump ads already
‘I don’t even know why I need so much money,’ Trump said last week; ‘I go around, I make speeches, I talk to reporters. I don’t even need commercials’
Donald Trump says he raised $51 million for his campaign and allied Republicans in recent weeks – a dramatic uptick from his May numbers but less than likely Democratic presidential opponent Hillary Clinton’s June haul.
Trump previewed his latest fundraising numbers Tuesday night on Twitter by writing, ‘Raised a lot of money for the Republican Party. There will be a big gasp when the figures are announced in the morning. Lots of support! Win.’
Clinton raised almost $70 million in June for her campaign and Democratic partners, her campaign announced last week, an amount that included about $40 million that went directly into her campaign coffers.
In a release, Trump says his campaign raised $26 million online in the month of June, a small portion of which will go to the RNC, per a fundraising agreement.
Additionally, Trump and the RNC raised $25 million during 22 events in June and the final week of May, the release said.
Trump’s campaign did not immediately clarify how much money came in one month versus the other, or how much went to his campaign versus Republican committees.
Regardless, the recent fundraising is a marked improvement from May, when Trump’s campaign raised a little over $3 million from donors and the RNC pulled in about $11 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
The Clinton campaign’s direct access to cash has enabled it to spend tens of millions of dollars more than Trump to build up voter contact operations and advertisements ahead of the November election.
