Biden raised $ 383 million in September, breaking the monthly gross fundraising record his campaign had just set in August. Biden and the Democratic Party angered Trump and Republicans with $ 135 million in September.
By comparison, Hillary Clinton raised $ 154 million in September 2016.
The Trump campaign was raising and spending money in a historical clip, but Biden and the Democrats turned things quickly in August after the Democratic convention and California Senator Kamala Harris as Biden’s running mate.
In addition to raising significantly more money in both August and September, the Biden campaign also has more money in the bank to spend in the final month of the race. The Trump campaign will announce $ 251.4 million in cash on hand, while Biden has $ 432 million.
Despite the $ 180 million shortfall, the Trump campaign said it was confident it would have sufficient resources to continue efforts to reelect the president.
In a tweet announcing the fundraising totals, Tim Murtaugh, the campaign communications director, wrote, “President Trump is reaching the final stage with the strength, resources, registration, and massive ground game needed to spread the message and secure his re-election.”
