Joe Biden announced Wednesday evening that his campaign and affiliated committees raised $383 million in September, breaking a record he had just set the prior month as his campaign continues to ride a surge of online donations.
Biden, the Democratic National Committee and the campaign’s joint fundraising committees started the final 34 days of the campaign with $432 million in the bank, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon tweeted.
President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee have not yet released their fundraising totals for September, though they must file campaign finance reports for the month by Oct. 20. In August, Biden raised $154 million than Trump, $365 million to $210 million.
The enormous September fundraising haul for Biden, powered by more than $203 million from online donors, is the latest windfall for the Democratic campaign as it roared ahead of Trump’s political machine this fall. It’s a role reversal from the spring, when Trump started the general election with a nine-figure head start over the former vice president.
