(CNN)President Donald Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee raised more than $74 million in May, marking a fundraising rebound from April, but falling short of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's massive haul.

But the announcement comes after Biden's campaign, the Democratic National Committee and their joint fundraising efforts said earlier this month it raised nearly $81 million in May. The haul came in the first full month of a joint fundraising agreement with the Democratic National Committee was in effect, allowing large-dollar donors to give more.

Biden has not resumed in-person fundraising, but the former vice president has used virtual fundraising -- inviting donors to participate in online conferences that feature marquee Democrats -- to draw in legions of new small-dollar donors to his campaign.

In April alone, Biden's campaign took in $16 million in donations of $200 or less -- more than three times the small-dollar donations collected by Trump's campaign that month, Federal Election Commission records show.
