Three Trump campaign entities combined to raise $56.7 million in the second quarter, while the RNC took in $51.3 million — slightly higher than the $105 million the entities announced raising earlier this month.

That surpasses the fundraising totals former President Obama and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) posted in the same quarter in 2011. That year, Obama’s reelection campaign reported $47 million in donations, while the DNC took in $38 million.

The Trump campaign said its second quarter haul surpassed its entire fundraising totals for the first six months of 2018.

Candidates for president must file their second quarter fundraising numbers with the Federal Election Commission by midnight.
