Clinton Campaign Raises $143M In August

#ThanksTrump. Politico reports:

Hillary Clinton raised $143 million in August, a total that includes her own campaign’s collections as well as money for joint fundraising committees with the national and state parties.

Her campaign hailed the monthly fundraising haul Thursday as its best of the campaign cycle. The Democratic nominee has more than $68 million on hand, and its average donation last month was about $50.

“Thanks to the 2.3 million people who have contributed to our campaign, we are heading into the final two months of the race with the resources we need to organize and mobilize millions of voters across the country,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said in a statement.

“Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric continues to drive voters away from him and the Republican Party and has created new opportunities for Democrats up and down the ticket,” he said. “These resources will help us to register and turn out millions of voters to elect progressive candidates across the country.”
