Clinton Campaign Raises $19 Million in 3-Day Event in California

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is on a pace to make August her biggest fundraising month since the start of her campaign. The former secretary of state held nine fundraisers across California over a three-day span this week, raising $19 million.

Billionaires, celebrities and sports athletes all rallied to show their support of Clinton.

The events occurred in northern and southern California in a week when the Clinton Foundation has come under fire. Clinton failed to hand over emails from the foundation when she left her position with the State Department. The failure is a string of email-related mishaps made by Clinton.

Clinton’s press pool was not allowed into any of the fundraisers held by Clinton this past week. Her press pool has been able to attend five out of 320 fundraisers of the Clinton campaign.

Clinton is heading to Reno, Nevada on Thursday.

Tim Kaine and Clinton have raised over $57 million this month alone for events that they’ve headlined. In June, events that Clinton headlined raised only $40 million. Kaine-headlined events raised a total of $11 million on the month.

Donald Trump, Republican nominee, raised $80 million in July, alarming the Clinton campaign that raised a total of $90 million on the month. Clinton’s campaign is working to outpace the fundraising of the Trump campaign with a series of events headlined primarily by Clinton and Kane.
