With two months to go before Election Day, Democrats have the cash advantage in the race for the White House, but Republicans have the cash advantage in the race for the Senate.
Five takeaways from Clinton and Trump’s big money month
Presidential campaigns and their supportive super PACs filed new numbers Tuesday that continue to show Clinton’s cash lead in the homestretch of the presidential race. Clinton’s campaign raised $59.5 million and had about $68 million on hand at the end of August; Trump’s raised $41.7 million and had $50.2 million on hand.
Meanwhile, a cadre of Republican donors — most prominently, Sheldon Adelson — are keeping Republicans competitive in down-ballot races.
