Hillary Clinton Campaign Raised $28 Million in Last 3 Months

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has record-breaking quarter with 1 million individual contributions


Hillary Clinton’s campaign raised $28 million for her 2016 presidential campaign in the past three months, falling short of her nearly $48 million donations in the previous quarter.

Almost all of the money raised, 93 percent, came from small donations of $100 or less. More than 60 percent came from women.

“We are thrilled and grateful for the support of hundreds of thousands of donors across the country, helping us raise a record $75 million in the first two quarters,” campaign manager Robby Mook said in a statement Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders raised more than $24 million in the last three months. His presidential campaign announced on Wednesday that he was the first candidate of either party to secure 1 million individual contributions.

According to The Wall Street Journal, this is a record for a presidential campaign. During his 2008 bid, President Barack Obama did not reach this threshold until February 2008. During his 2012 run, he didn’t hit it until October 2011.
