President Donald Trump raised $248 million in September, his campaign announced Thursday, leaving him with notably less cash than Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign.

The vice president’s campaign announced Wednesday that it raised a record $383 million, and had over $430 million cash-on-hand entering the final weeks of the presidential race.

Trump’s campaign has just over $250 million cash-on-hand, Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump, tweeted Thursday.

“President Trump hits the final stretch with strength, resources, record & huge ground game needed to spread message and secure re-election,” Murtaugh tweeted.

The candidates’ financial resources mark a significant reversal from earlier this year, where Trump had a massive fundraising edge over Biden, who initially struggled to raise money and rise above other Democratic candidates in the party’s primary.

Biden’s fundraising has exploded in recent months, however, including a then-record $364 million in August, mirroring other down-ballot Democratic candidates who have raised record amounts in the weeks before November’s election.

ActBlue, the main Democratic online fundraising platform, raised $758 million in September, while WinRed, the main Republican online fundraising platform, raised $623 million in the third quarter of 2020, Politico reported.
