Hillary Clinton’s campaign outpaced Donald Trump’s team in fundraising in August but also burned through more cash, according to monthly campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission this week.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign pulled in about $60 million in August and spent about $50 million, beginning September with more than $68 million on hand.

Combined with associated committees, the Clinton campaign said it collectively brought in more than $140 million for the month and had about $152 million on hand at the start of September.

Meanwhile, Mr. Trump’s campaign brought in about $42 million, spent about $30 million and finished August with $50.3 million on hand.

The Trump campaign said earlier this month that combined with associated committees, they collectively raised $90 million in August and closed the month with about $97 million on hand.

Priorities USA Action, the main super PAC supporting Mrs. Clinton’s candidacy, raised about $23 million in August, spent close to $21 million, and started September with more than $41 million on hand.

Great America PAC, one of the main pro-Trump groups, raised about $3.6 million, spent about $2.6 million, and started September with close to $2 million on hand. Another pro-Trump group, Rebuilding America Now, files its finance reports on a quarterly basis.
