WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton hauled in a combined $143 million in August for her presidential bid, her best month yet in a fundraising push that lays the groundwork for her fall campaign.

The Democratic nominee brought in $62 million for her campaign last month and another $81 million for the Democratic National Committee and state parties.

Clinton begins September with more than $68 million in the bank to use against rival Donald Trump.

Clinton raised a combined $90 million in July.
