Though her campaign said that 93 percent of the third-quarter donations were in amounts of $100 or less, she also attended almost 60 fundraisers this quarter. She raised at least $19 million from about 60 events where admission typically cost ,700, the biggest donation allowed by law.

Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver made the case to the New York Times on Wednesday that the strength of Sanders’ fundraising operation means he’s well-positioned to compete across the country. With just a few hours left in the day, he emailed supporters, “Chip in $3 before the midnight FEC deadline as a way of saying you have had enough of the billionaire class buying our elections”. But Clinton’s overall fundraising machine remains formidable: combined with the .5 million she raised in the second quarter, her campaign has brought in roughly $75 million in six months. “If she doesn’t win the Democratic nomination, it will be one of the largest political upsets of the modern era”, Mr. Grier noted.
Blaise Ingoglia, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, plans to highlight Clinton’s use of a private email server, rather than the government email system, while she was secretary of state.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign took in over million during the third quarter. We’ve yet to have a debate, and all accounts seem to indicate that that will favor Clinton, if only because Bernie Sanders both perpetually looks like he’s late for a plane, and has no trouble claiming he’s basically a Communist, even on live television. Her next fundraising report will show how she fared during the typical summer lull and give insiders a look into how efficiently her campaign is running. Those people are then forbidden from giving money for the primary campaign again.
Sanders’s haul came from 650,000 individual donors in the five months since he launched his bid, according to his campaign. And Clinton has said repeatedly that she never sent or received information that was marked as classified. “And my job as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is to ensure that we remain those things I said we are: competent, honest and independent – and that we do our work well”. But, there is a big difference between the way that Clinton and Sanders are raising money.
