Joe Biden’s presidential campaign and joint fundraising committees raised an eye-popping $364.5 million in August, the campaign said Wednesday, setting a new monthly record for presidential fundraising.
The massive cash haul flooded in last month as Biden announced his vice presidential pick, California Senator Kamala Harris, and officially accepted his party’s nomination in the first-ever virtual Democratic National Convention.
The campaign said online donations totaled $205 million, or 57%, representing “the best month of online fundraising in American political history.” More than 4 million people have made contributions, with 1.5 million new donors in August, according to the campaign.
