Hillary Clinton kicking ass in fundraising
Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party just had their best fundraising month yet.
The presidential candidate released her fundraising totals for the month of August when she raised $143 million for her campaign and party—an impressive 58% jump from July’s $90 million. According to the Washington Post, $62 million was donated to her campaign committee and $81 million went to the Democratic National Committee and state parties.
Clinton’s busy schedule last month may have had something to do with the increase in money. She attended upwards of 70 fundraising events in August alongside her pick for vice president, Tim Kaine.
Interestingly, donations to Clinton’s campaign didn’t go up at all as she also raised $62 million in July. The fundraising spike was attributed directly to the Democratic Party, which pulled in nearly three times as much in donations as it did in July.
She is also running ads in states like Arizona that have a large Hispanic population. If things keep going well we will have a blow out like in 1936. FDR 523, Alf Landon 8.
