Trump Raises $80 Million in Major July Fundraising Bounce

Trump says the campaign hauled in nearly $36 million from small donors.

Earlier this week, Trump boasted of the grass-roots support his campaign has been getting.

"We have raised with the small donor $35.8 million," Trump said Monday at an event in Columbus, Ohio. "Think of that. I believe it's 517,000 donors. Think of that. That's in a month."

The July windfall gives Trump ammunition for what is sure to be an intense final stretch and shrank what had been a considerable funding gap between the two campaigns. Trump finished the month with $37 million in cash on hand, compared with $58 million for Clinton. Before becoming the official GOP nominee in July, Trump had largely self-funded his campaign, to the tune of $56 million, including $2 million last month.
