The most recent fundraising documents from the two leading party candidates show that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign cash earlier this month was nearly three times that of President Trump.
According to documents submitted to the federal election commission on Tuesday night, Sept. 30, the former vice president’s campaign had more than $ 177 million in cash. Trump’s reelection campaign brought in $ 63.1 million to the bank.
Biden’s massive fundraising advantage over the past few months has widened this gap. Biden made $ 281 million in September, more than three times the $ 81 million the president raised. Trump’s report indicated that his campaign spent more money than the money raised in September.
Trump stressed the president’s cash disadvantage. He spent a few hours over the weekend campaigning to cover one of the largest fundraising activities in California. An employee at the event told Fox News that his reelection brought in about 1,100. Ten thousand dollars.
But the president’s campaign emphasized that they have enough money to win the election.
Campaign spokesman Samantha Zager stressed in a statement Tuesday evening, “The Trump campaign has all the resources we need to get into the election house.”
“The Trump campaign has all the resources we need going into the home stretch of this election,” campaign spokeswoman Samantha Zager highlighted in a statement on Tuesday night.
These numbers show that the Trump campaign and RNC bank deposits totaled $ 251 million at the end of September. The day before, the Biden campaign and the Democratic National Committee reported that the total money available was $ 432 million.
The financial advantage allowed Biden’s campaign to significantly outperform the Trump team in last month’s ad campaign. According to data from the top ad tracking company Advertising Analytics, Biden’s campaign brought in nearly $ 148 million in September, while Trump’s team had only $ 56 million.
While campaign money is an essential indicator, money isn’t everything. Four years ago, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (Hillary Clinton) won and surpassed Trump, but still lost to the White House campaign.
“As Hillary Clinton proved when she outspent us 2-to-1 in 2016, no amount of money can buy the presidency – voters have to be enthusiastic about casting their ballot for a candidate, and that’s only happening for President Trump,” Zager noted.
She stressed that the Trump campaign is “an all-encompassing campaign that includes our massive ground games, trips to major countries, and advertisements on digital television and radio.”
In recent months, the Trump campaign has made it clear that their major ground organization (formed in recent years) on key battlefields is years ahead of the organization the Biden team founded over the past seven months.
The president seemed to underestimate the fundraising shortage earlier this week. Trump told his supporters at a campaign rally in Arizona on Monday that if he ventured into business, he might be “ the greatest fundraiser in history. ” The president explained that he avoided this because he said the donor would “harm him completely.”
The president told his supporters, “All I have to do is call up the head of every Wall Street firm, head of every major company, the head of every major energy company, ‘Do me a favor, send me $10 million for my campaign.’ ‘Yes, sir.’ They say the only thing is, ‘Why didn’t you ask for more, sir?’”
