More than $103 million.
That’s how much the Super PAC supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said it has raised in the first half of 2015. In addition, the Republican presidential hopeful’s campaign has raised $11.4 million since he formally announced his candidacy in mid-June.
Bush was expected to have a formidable financial advantage, so the reports were hardly surprising. The PAC reported $98 million cash on hand. The reports cover funds raised and spent until June 30.
The PAC said its haul came from more than 9,900 donors, including more than 9,400 who gave $25,000 or less.
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton raised $45 million during the first quarter of her campaign, and is aiming to raise $100 million this year for the 2016 primar yseason.
