Mega-Donors Raise $1 Billion for Hillary Clinton

Clinton, with the party and pro-Clinton super PACs, had raised $1.14 billion in support of her campaign by the end of September, about the same amount as what Obama raised in 2012 for his re-election campaign, the Washington Post reports.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who did not start aggressively fundraising until May, had collected $712 million, including $56 million of his own money.

Part of Clinton’s advantage in fundraising comes from her decision to embrace super PACs from the start of the presidential race, helping her to get more out of donors than Obama did.

A Washington Post analysis found that more than a fifth of the $1 billion donated to her campaign was given by just 100 wealthy individuals and labor unions, many with a long history of donating to the Clintons.
