WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump is lagging his Democratic challenger Joe Biden in fundraising in the final weeks before the Nov. 3 election, according to figures released by his campaign manager.
Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee started the last full month before the Nov. 3 election with $251.4 million cash on hand after raising $247.8 million in September, campaign manager Tim Murtaugh tweeted late on Thursday.
The intake was around $135 million less than former Vice President Biden raised in September. But it was greater than the $210 million raised in August as Trump seeks a second term.
President Trump hits final stretch with strength, resources, record & huge ground game needed to spread message and secure re-election.
Campaign, RNC & joint committees in September:

POTUS has done more in 47 months than Biden in 47 years.
