Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign raised at least $45 million during its first quarter, her campaign told Bloomberg on Wednesday.
Clinton's haul from her campaign's launch in mid-April through June 30 is a record for primary money raised in a candidate's first quarter. President Barack Obama held the previous record for a campaign's first quarter, raising $41.9 million after launching his re-election bid.Not only that, but 91 percent of the donations were of $100 or less. This success is due to massive grassroots enthusiasm.
Here's the word directly from Hillary's twitter feed:
