Jeb Raises $114M for Presidential Run

Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign has raised $11.4 million in the second quarter, while his allied super PAC has hauled in over $103 million in the past six months. “We are grateful for the overwhelming response from the thousands of donors who have been drawn to Jeb’s optimistic message of conservative renewal and reform,” said Charlie Spies, Right to Rise USA, super PAC’s treasurer and general counsel. More than 9,900 donors chipped in during his first two weeks as a declared candidate. The only candidate in either party to come close to raising that kind of money is Hillary Clinton with $45 million in the first quarter.

Correction, 7/9/15, 1:18 PM: A previous version of this article referred to Jeb Bush's super PAC as "Rise to Rise USA." Its actual name is "Right to Rise USA."
