Hillary Clinton raised $63 million for her coffers in July, her biggest one-month haul to date, as the Democratic Party officially named her its nominee for the White House, her campaign said Tuesday.    

About $8.7 million streamed in during the 24 hours starting Thursday night, when she spoke to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, the campaign said. Clinton raised another $26 million last month for the national and state parties, according to the campaign, for an overall haul of almost $90 million. 

Clinton’s rival, Republican Donald Trump, largely self-financed his primary campaign and has ramped up fundraising since securing his party’s nomination. Still, he's struggled to close Clinton's lead.

Trump said Monday he raised about $35.8 million last month in small donations, though he didn't specify the total amount he raised for his campaign and the party. A Trump spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

In comparison, 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney raised more than $101 million for his campaign and party in July of that year, beating President Barack Obama by more than $25 million.

As of the end of July, the Clinton campaign had about $58 million in the bank, the campaign said. Trump’s current cash hasn't been disclosed; the campaign said it had $20.2 million in the bank at the end of June.

Both campaigns are due to disclose July monthly fundraising reports to the Federal Election Commission on Aug. 20.
