Hillary Shuns the People in August – Raised Millions with Rich Elite Donors and Rested
Trump Spoke to 200,000 Supporters in August – Hillary Spoke to Elitist Donors
Donald Trump held 31 public campaign events in August. He held 32 events if you count Senator Joni Ernst’s Roast in Des Moines where he was the keynote speaker. More than 198,000 people will have participated at these events and for 7 of these events (Columbus, Harrisburg, Ashburn, Wilmington, Abingdon, West Bend and Akron) Trump had overflow crowds. In Everett, Washington as in many locations throughout the campaign, Trump set a new attendance record in the arena where his event was held.
Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, held only 11 public campaign events in August.
She spent the rest of the month at pricey fundraisers in Hollywood and Martha’s Vineyard.
She also took several days off to rest.
Hillary Clinton raised $143 million from her rich donors in August.
She can’t get people to her rallies but she sure attracts the rich elitist donors!
The AP reported:
Hillary Clinton hauled in $143 million in August for her presidential bid and the Democratic party, her best month yet in a fundraising push that lays the groundwork for her fall campaign.
The Democratic nominee brought in $62 million for her campaign last month and another $81 million for the Democratic National Committee and state parties. Clinton begins September with more than $68 million in the bank for her campaign against rival Donald Trump.
The money will help bankroll Clinton’s large advertising campaign in battleground states that will help determine the outcome of the 2016 election, along with the large get-out-the-vote operation that her team has been assembling across the country.
Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, said more than 2.3 million people have contributed to the campaign and as a result, “we are heading into the final two months of the race with the resources we need to organize and mobilize millions of voters across the country.”
Trump did not immediately release his fundraising totals for the month. The Republican nominee is coming off a large fundraising haul of $80 million in July in combination with the Republican National Committee.
