Trump doubles monthly campaign fundraising, lags Clinton

Republican U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally in PhoenixBy Grant Smith, Michelle Conlin and Ginger Gibson NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s campaign raised $3.1 million from donors in May, more than doubling previous monthly hauls as he began soliciting donations to battle Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s campaign raised $26 million in May. The figures underscore the huge money advantage Clinton is hoping to enjoy leading into the Nov. 8 election, one that could allow her a large staff and millions of dollars of television and digital ads in battleground states. Trump, who has self-funded most of his campaign and only held his first general election fundraiser on May 26th, is betting he can run a race that builds on his low-spending, insurgent primary operation.
