Joe Biden raises $141 million, beating Trump’s $131 million
For the second time in a row, Joe Biden’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised $141 million in June, besting President Trump’s fundraising efforts.
According to figures released on Wednesday night, Trump and the Republican National Committee fell short of about $10 million in June.
During the second quarter, Biden and the Democrats raised $282 million to Trump and the Republicans’ $266 million.
Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley celebrated saying; “It’s clear that voters are looking for steady leadership, experience, empathy, compassion, and character—and they’ll find all of these qualities in Vice President Joe Biden.”
O’Malley added that 68 percent of last month’s donors were newcomers to the campaign.
However, Trump’s side is hardly strapped for cash. Politico reported that his campaign has another $295 million sitting in the bank.
