Donald Trump's accelerated fundraising in June pulled in more than $26 million, his campaign announced Wednesday, marking a rebound from the presumptive GOP nominee's anemic haul the previous month.
Trump raised an additional $25 million jointly with the Republican National Committee. The real estate mogul contributed $3.8 million himself.
"We just started our fundraising efforts in the last week of May, and we are extremely pleased with the broad-based support in the last five weeks for the Trump Campaign and Trump Victory," Steven Mnuchin, the campaign's finance chair, said in a statement.
Opponents of legal pot just can’t catch a break. As they battle the growing tide of legalization initiatives in the states, they now also find themselves at odds with the national Democratic Party.
The Democratic National Committee’s draft platform encourages states that want to legalize marijuana to go for it.
“We believe that the states should be the laboratories of democracy on the issue of marijuana, and those states that want to decriminalize marijuana should be able to do so,” the draft document says. It also calls for law changes that would make it easier to run pot dispensaries and for an end to racial disparities in drug law enforcement.
Hillary Clinton stood under the faded "Trump Plaza" sign on a shuttered casino in Atlantic City and blasted Donald Trump's record in the troubled New Jersey resort town, accusing him of cashing in at the expense of his workers and investors.
“Everything falls apart, people get hurt, and Donald gets paid," Clinton said.
Trump has a checkered past in Atlantic City, where he owned multiple casinos, endured bankruptcies and fought with the banks which loaned him money. Clinton said voters should be wary when the presumptive Republican nominee says he would apply his business skills to the presidency.
Bernie Sanders, who has appeared hesitant to embrace Hillary Clinton even after she became the clear winner of the Democratic presidential primary season, is eagerly welcoming her new plan to make higher education more affordable.
In a sign that Sanders and Clinton are increasingly aligned as the party prepares for its convention later this month in Philadelphia, the Vermont senator said the proposals are "a result of the work of both campaigns."
The Sanders campaign also took the unusual step of distributing a news release praising Clinton.
Sen. Bernie Sanders was booed during a closed meeting with House Democrats on Wednesday, as lawmakers shouted "Timeline! Timeline!" — pressing for his endorsement of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as the party's presidential nominee.
The Vermont senator did not directly answer Democrats' many questions about his intentions, according to a source in the room who requested anonymity to discuss the private session.
"He went in there with his canned talking points from the stump," the source said. "People just weren't having it."
