Trump was holding a rally in Toledo Wednesday, a day after the numbers were released.

    August was a good month for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, both of whom reported their best fundraising yet, NBC News reported.

    Clinton brought in $59.5 million and Trump $41 million, according to new Federal Election Commission filings released Tuesday.

    While Clinton raised more than her Republican rival, she also spent more than him. Clinton spent $49.6 million in August, compared to Trump's $29.9 million.

    The fundraising totals are less than what the campaigns had announced earlier this month — those sums included money raised for their joint fundraising committees to help their parties and down-ballot candidates. Those fundraising numbers won't be released until October.
