Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced on Wednesday night that he had raised $383 million last month, shattering his previous record in August.

“To every person who chipped in a few dollars last month — thank you. Because of your support, we raised an astounding $383 million,” Biden tweeted. “I’m incredibly humbled.”

Campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon retweeted Biden and stated that $203 million of the funds had come from online donors.

The massive haul beat the Biden campaign’s already record-breaking windfall of $364.5 million in August. By contrast, President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign raised $210 million that month.

Trump has not yet reported his fundraising totals for September. However, Buzzfeed News reported last week that his campaign has gutted millions of dollars from ad spending in crucial swing states, including Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
