Print More

Updated Sept. 26, 2016 – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign raised $900,998 in August in Connecticut – just about double what Republican rival Donald Trump has raised here the entire election cycle.

Clinton’s campaign has raised $5.5 million in individual contributions in Connecticut while Trump has raised $477,516.

Trump’s campaign saw a 10-fold uptick in receipts from May to June, but that has remained relatively flat since.

That’s according to the latest round of Federal Election Commission reports covering individual, itemized contributions through August. Itemized contributions include all contributions to the candidate committees over $200. Contributions under $200 are not required to be itemized, but many of the smaller contributions are included in the reports at each committee’s discretion.

Clinton’s campaign has reported 29,621 individual contributions in Connecticut so far. Trump has reported 4,111.

Aug. 22 — Donald Trump is bringing in real money in Connecticut. The Republican presidential candidate’s campaign saw a 10-fold increase in fund-raising in the state.

Trump’s candidate committee raised $155,000 in June and $140,000 in July in Connecticut, according to the most recent round of filings, still far short of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton who, in her worst month of 2016, January, was still able to raise $227,000.

Clinton’s haul in July was her biggest ever in Connecticut. She raised $666,000 in the month of the Democratic and Republican national conventions.

June 21 — Connecticut is no exception when it comes to Donald Trump’s fund-raising woes.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has raised just $45,000 in itemized, individual contributions in Connecticut, putting him behind 13 other 2016 presidential candidates, almost all of whom have long ended their bids for the White House. That’s according to data released Tuesday by the Federal Election Commission.

Rival Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, has raised more than $3.6 million, or 80 times Trump’s haul.
