Former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party raised $141 million in June, his campaign announced on Wednesday night.

Why it matters: It's the most the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has raised in a month. It's also more than the record $131 million President Trump's re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee raised last month.

Of note: The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee leads Trump in most polls. RealClearPolitics' polling average shows Biden ahead of the president by 9.4 points.

  • Trump's campaign has pulled in an impressive haul over the past two years —almost $950 million, with $295 million in the bank, per the New York Times.
  • Biden's campaign has not revealed its cash-on-hand total.

What they're saying: Biden campaign manager Jennifer O’Malley Dillon tweeted, "68% of our donors were new ... There’s real, grassroots energy for Joe."

  • Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted after announcing how much they raised in June, "Americans voting with their wallets, supporting the President."
