Donald Trump’s campaign gets a shot in the arm with blazing new fundraising haul

Donald Trump’s campaign got a much needed financial shot in the arm with its largest fundraising haul in July.

Digital and direct mail operations by the GOP presidential nominee’s campaign, in partnership with the Republican National Committee, raised $64 million according to a statement released Wednesday.

“Last month we continued our $2 million matching program from Mr. Trump bringing his overall contributions to the campaign in excess of $56 million. His contributions for the month far surpass the FEC required reimbursements,” the campaign reported.

The campaign and joint fundraising committees also reported having $74 million cash on hand.

“We are extremely proud of our 69% growth in small dollar donations which shows the broad based support of over one million donors across America. Our volunteers and contributors are clearly committed to electing Donald J. Trump as President in November,” Trump campaign Finance Chairman Steven Mnuchin said in the statement.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still ahead of Trump, however, raising nearly $90 million between her campaign and joint fundraising committees in July, according to Politico. She reportedly has more than $58 million cash on hand.

But the Trump campaign was pleased with its “impressive totals” and said it “expects this success to continue throughout the coming months with the support of small dollar contributions from passionate supporters across the country.”
