NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–September 1, 2016. Hillary Clinton had her best fundraising month of the campaign in August, bringing in about $143 million for Hillary for America (HFA) and the Democratic Party. HFA, along with the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) and Hillary Action Fund (HAF) began September with a combined $152 million in the bank. More than 2.3 million people have now donated to HFA and the average donation to the campaign in August 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,” said Hillary for America Campaign Manager Robby Mook. “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. These resources will help us to register and turnout millions of voters to elect progressive candidates across the country.”
About $62 million of the total raised was for Hillary for America while about $81 million was raised for the DNC and state parties across the country through the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary Action Fund.
HFA began September with more than $68 million on hand, while HVF and HAF had a combined $84 million.
