After an impressive performance during the Democratic primary debate, Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambition has gained momentum, with her campaign having raised a whopping USD 33 million in cash — more than any other candidate in the fray.

In a historic third quarter, Clinton raised more than USD 28 million in primary dollars and now has received more than 600,000 contributions from nearly 400,000 individual donors to the campaign to date. This was the largest off-year third quarter ever for a non-incumbent.

The campaign raised more than USD 5 million this quarter in contributions of USD 200 or less, and more than 60 per cent of the campaign’s donors this quarter were women, thus showing her increasing popularity. “These numbers are a testament to broad support for Hillary Clinton’s vision for America and her plans to create rising incomes and middle class growth,” said Robby Mook, campaign manager for the Hillary For America (HFA).

“We are on track to hit our goal of USD 100 million during the primary, which will set us up to reach more voters, organise them, and make Hillary Clinton the Democratic nominee in 2016,” he said. In addition, the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) raised more than USD 3 million this quarter, with 62 percent of its contributions coming from women.

After a USD 600,000 transfer to the Democratic National Committee to help strengthen the national party and help the Democratic nominee win the White House, the HVF has more than USD 1.7 million on hand. On the Republican side, Jeb Bush raised USD 13.4 million and Ben Carson USD 20 million haul in the third quarter.
