Biden Campaign Sets September Fundraising Record, 20 Percent Being First-Time Donors

Joe Biden’s election campaign established a new monthly fundraising record in September, surpassing the previous record it set in August.

The Democratic presidential nominee announced his campaign received $383 million in donations over the past month on Wednesday, sharing thanks to those who contributed in a written message and video posted to Twitter.

His campaign’s latest fundraising numbers exceeded August donations by nearly $20 million, and more than half of the contributions it acquired in September—totaling upwards of $200 million—were donated online.

“To every person who chipped in a few dollars last month—thank you,” Biden wrote Wednesday, announcing the campaign’s second consecutive monthly fundraising record. “Because of your support, we raised an astounding $383 million. I’m incredibly humbled.”
