Clinton says campaign donations hit record $154m in September

02 October 2016, 14:58

Washington - Hillary Clinton said on Saturday she raised a record $154m in September in her race for the White House against Donald Trump.

In August, Clinton raised $143m and Trump $90m. It is common for campaign donations to increase as the election approaches. This year the voting is on November 8.

The money is in fact divided between Clinton's campaign and the Democratic Party.

Individual Americans can donate up to $2 700 to a candidate in a general election. Anything beyond $2 700 has to go to committees other than that of the candidate.

Clinton and her Democratic allies begin the month of October with a war chest of $150m to blitz TV, radio and the internet with ads.

More than 900 000 people made a donation in September and 2.6 million have done so since the beginning of the race, the Clinton campaign said.

The Trump campaign has not yet released a figure for September.

Clinton relies more than Trump on elite private fundraising events in which a single ticket can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Trump said in early September that he has contributed nearly $60m of his own money to his campaign for the White House.

Small donations - practically unheard of during the primary campaign - shot up for Trump, totaling 2.1 million people from June to August.

In the 24 hours right after last week's big debate with Clinton, Trump said he received $18 in donations.
