The bulk of the money — $22 million — is for use in the primaries.
Her total fundraising of nearly $80 million for the 2008 presidential race, reported Tuesday, puts her on a par with her chief Democratic fundraising rival, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. He still leads Clinton in money raised for the primaries alone, though trailing in national opinion polls.
Obama reported raising at last $19 million from July through September for the primaries. He has raised a total of $75 million for the primary season and about $4 million for the general election next year.
Clinton’s summer donations bring her total primary dollars raised this year to $62 million. The New York senator also raised $5 million for the general election in the quarter, adding to $12.6 million from previous quarters.
She also supplemented her fundraising earlier this year with a $10 million transfer from her 2006 Senate campaign.
This was the first quarter that Clinton has raised more than Obama, who brought in $20 million in the same period and has given her an unexpectedly tight competition in the money race.
