The amount far exceeds $ 154 million raised by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in September 2016.
Biden now has $ 432 million in the bank to run his campaign in the final month of the race, for campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dylan.
Trump had a significant advantage for most of the cash campaign, which is the amount of money available for a campaign. However, a combination of high spending and increased donations caused by the Democratic National Convention and the addition of Senator Kamala Harris to the Democratic ticket in August helped Biden̵
In a video announcing the September issue, Biden shared the news with a supporter at the level named Trimichka.
“It’s more money than I’ve ever raised in my life,” he said. “I’m really humbled by that.”
More than half of the money raised – $ 203 million – comes from online donors, O’Malley Dylan said, and the campaign added 1.1 million new donors last month alone, representing 20% of their total 5.5 million donors throughout the campaign. .
The average contribution is $ 44.
Trump’s campaign has not yet announced its fundraising numbers in September.
While Biden struggled at times to compete financially with his rivals during the Democratic Championship, that quickly changed after he was officially nominated. After a handful of good fundraising quarters, Biden began closing the cash gap with Trump’s campaign this summer.
Biden, along with the Democratic National Committee and the Joint Committees, ended August with $ 466 million in cash, while Trump and the Republican National Committee had $ 325 million at their disposal.
