Clinton more than met her goal of raising $100 million

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign announced Friday that it raised $37 million in the last three months, bringing its yearly fundraising total to $112 million.

This beats a fundraising goal of $100 million set by the campaign earlier in the year, reports CNN. The Clinton campaign also says that it has raised $18 million for the Democratic National Committee and for state Democratic parties across the country.

Aides to the Democratic frontrunner say that many of these donors were women—and 94% of the donations were in increments of $100 or less.

Coming into the New Year, the Clinton campaign says it has $38 million cash on hand as it prepares for the first electoral event in the election cycle, the Feb 1. Iowa Caucus. Clinton’s fundraising totals for the fourth quarter are higher than others that have been reported so far. Republican contenders Ben Carson and Ted Cruz raised $23 million and $19 million, respectively.
