Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign reports it — along with the Republican National Committee (RNC) — pulled in $64 million in fundraising for the month of July, and has nearly $80 million on hand.

“We are extremely proud of our 69% growth in small dollar donations which shows the broad based support of over one million donors across America. Our volunteers and contributors are clearly committed to electing Donald J. Trump as President in November,” the Trump campaign’s finance chairman Steven Mnuchin announced on Wednesday.

Trump and the RNC held 20 fundraising events that raised more than $16 million.

“Last month we continued our $2 million matching program from Mr. Trump bringing his overall contributions to the campaign in excess of $56 million. His contributions for the month far surpass the FEC required reimbursements to his related entities, i.e., airplane, Trump properties and the like,” the Trump campaign press release announcing the fundraising read.

It continued:

The Campaign and both Joint Fundraising Committees also have very strong cash on hand numbers totaling approximately $74 million ($37 million for DJTFP, $37 million for TMAGA/TV). The results from this month show the enthusiastic movement the campaign has created since we started our online fundraising efforts in June. The campaign very much appreciates the broad based support, and will work hard to achieve victory in November and Make America Great Again.

Trump previously touted his fundraising numbers at his campaign rally in Ashburn, Virginia on Tuesday.

“We’re going to have more than $35 million,” in donations from nearly 60,000 people, which averaged $61 per donation, Trump disclosed.
