Nikki Haley, a former South Carolina governor and United Nations ambassador, raised $5.3 million for her April-June presidential campaign, a modest sum that still showed its strong appeal to small donors.
In total, three committees affiliated with Ms. Haley raised $7.3 million, according to reports her campaign provided to The New York Times before the Federal Election Commission filing deadline on Saturday.
Separately, a super PAC that supported his candidacy said Monday it had raised $18.7 million since its inception this year and had $17 million in cash at the end of June. Super PAC reports are not due to the FEC until the end of the month.
His campaign fundraising numbers fell below those of the two men who led in the polls for the Republican nomination, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida and former President Donald J. Trump. Last week, DeSantis’ campaign said he had raised $20 million, while a super PAC supporting him had raised $130 million since March.
Trump’s joint fundraising committee, his main fundraising vehicle, said it had raised $35 million in the second quarter; it’s unclear how much went to his campaign committee.
Neither the Trump campaign nor the DeSantis campaign provided the reports. When they are released this weekend, they will provide greater clarity on how each candidate’s money has been raised and spent.
By her campaign account, Ms. Haley is above the minimum threshold of 40,000 individual donors that candidates must meet to participate in the first Republican debate on Aug. 23. Her campaign said she has received 160,000 donations from all 50 states since she entered the race in February, the vast majority of which were less than $200.
Ms. Haley raised money through three committees: her presidential campaign, a joint fundraising committee called Team Stand for America, and a multi-candidate PAC. The joint fundraising committee also transfers money to the other two committees: the $5.3 million the campaign received from her in the second quarter, for example, includes a $1 million transfer from Team Stand for America.
In April, Ms Haley came under fire after her campaign broadcast that $11 million had been raised in the first six weeks. In fact, the committees had together received about $8.3 million, including $2.7 million in transfer money that was double-counted.
Together, the three committees had $9.3 million in cash at the end of June, according to the latest documents; his campaign accounts for $6.8 million of that.
