NYT: Clinton Raised $50 Million at Elite Fundraisers in Two Weeks

HeadlineSep 06, 2016

In news from the campaign trail, a New York Times analysis of Hillary Clinton’s fundraising schedule shows she raised $50 million at elite gatherings over the last two weeks of August—raising an average of $150,000 an hour. This comes as Hillary Clinton held almost no news conferences in months. She has, however, attended a series of exclusive fundraising events in wealthy vacation enclaves including the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard and Beverly Hills. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump allowed journalists to fly on their planes over the weekend.
