(USA Features) Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign hauled in some $46.7 million in March, but the former vice president still lags behind President Donald Trump ahead of the November election.
“This virus has changed our campaign. But it hasn’t changed the unwavering support we’ve gotten from all of you. Together, we’re going to defeat Trump,” Biden said in a statement.
Since announcing his presidential bid, Biden’s campaign had drawn $88 million in donations.
His campaign spent around $32.5 million in March, while ending with $26.4 million on hand.
Meanwhile, the president had roughly $98 million on hand by March’s end for his reelection effort, according to federal election data. The filing noted that the president raised $13 million last month.
