Donald Trump raised $26 million for his presidential campaign in June, as well as $25 million more in conjunction with the Republican National Committee, according to the New York billionaire’s campaign.

The fundraising haul marks a big improvement from Mr. Trump’s last financial report that showed he closed out the month of May with about $1.3 million in the bank — setting off alarm bells within the GOP over his ability to raise the sort of money that many believe he will need to stay competitive against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

“We just started our fundraising efforts in the last week of May, and we are extremely pleased with the broad-based support in the last five weeks for the Trump Campaign and Trump Victory,” said Steven Mnuchin, Donald J. Trump for President Finance chairman. “We want to thank our many volunteers and contributors that are committed to electing Donald J. Trump as president in November.”
