Hillary Clinton has $42 million in the bank

Hillary Clinton raised more than $27 million for her primary campaign in May and pulled in another $13.5 million for the Democratic National Committee and state parties, her campaign announced Wednesday.

Her aides said Clinton entered June with more than $42 million in available cash as she faces rival Bernie Sanders in the last round of presidential primaries Tuesday.

In all, Clinton has collected more than $240 million for the nomination battle and has raised more than $62 million for party committees.

“We have the resources we need to run a winning general-election campaign,” Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook said in a news release. “Hillary Clinton remains focused on ensuring that she and Democrats up and down the ballot are able to mobilize millions of voters and win in November.”

Sanders has not yet released his fundraising totals for May, but the Vermont senator started last month running short of cash. According to its Federal Election Commission filing, the Sanders campaign entered May with $5.8 million available in the bank.
