Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump raised a whopping $80 million during the month of July, the campaign announced Wednesday.

The campaign attributed $64 million of the donations to direct mail and digital efforts done in conjunction with the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Trump also contributed a large sum of his own money, roughly $56 million, which includes the $2 million matching program he recently implemented.

“We are extremely proud of our 69 percent 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.” Steven Mnuchin, Donald J. Trump for President finance chairman, said in a statement.

The campaign has approximately $37 million in cash on hand while the joint fundraising committee has an additional $37 million, bringing the grand total to $74 million.

Trump appears to be closing the sizable monetary gap seen June of this year, when he trailed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton by around $40 million.

Clinton managed to raise $90 million and currently has $58 million in cash, according to CNBC.
