Hillary Clinton Raises $55 Million in Fourth Quarter

$37 Million for Primary Campaign, $18 Million for Democratic Party

NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–January 1, 2016.  Thanks to the support of hundreds of thousands of people across the country, Hillary for America set a new record for the best off-year fundraising of any non-incumbent in history.  At the beginning of this campaign, Hillary Clinton set a goal of $100 million in primary contributions for 2015 and blew past that goal, raising more than $112 million in primary money for the year.  Clinton’s $37 million in primary dollars in the fourth quarter set a new record for the best off-year Q4 for a non-incumbent.  In addition to the money raised for her campaign, Clinton raised more than $18 million for the DNC and State Parties across the country through the Hillary Victory Fund in the fourth quarter.

Clinton raised roughly as much for the primary as President Obama did during 2011 as a sitting president and more than either Clinton or Obama in 2007 despite having one fewer quarter to raise.

“Thanks to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have joined together and powered this historic campaign, we are now heading into Iowa and New Hampshire with the resources we need to be successful,” said Hillary for America Campaign Manager Robby Mook.  “Helping Democratic candidates win up and down the ticket is a top priority for Hillary Clinton which is why she’s also proud to be doing her part to ensure Democrats have the resources we need to win.”
