President Donald Trump's reelection campaign, the Republican National Committee and their joint fundraising committees raised $76 million over the party's four-day convention this week, a spokesman for the campaign told CNN on Friday.

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's reelection campaign, the Republican National Committee and their joint fundraising committees raised $76 million over the party's four-day convention this week, a spokesman for the campaign told CNN on Friday.

The haul -- which was brought in by Trump Victory, the Trump Make America Great Again Committee and the Republican National Committee -- edges out the $70 million that Democratic nominee Joe Biden's campaign says it raised during the Democratic National Convention last week.

Fox News was first to report the Trump campaign's fundraising total.

The President's campaign has been a fundraising juggernaut, raising more than $1. 1 billion in the past two years, and typically has outpaced Biden and other Democrats in the amount of money available to them.

However, Biden's campaign -- through reduced spending and a series of strong fundraising months in which the former vice president and the Democratic National Committee out-raised Trump and the RNC -- managed to close the gap heading into the final months before the election.

Biden and the DNC ended July with $294 million on hand, the former vice president's campaign said earlier this month.

Beyond fundraising, the Biden campaign touted the Democratic convention's ratings victory over the Republican convention as evidence of enthusiasm to not reelect Trump.
