    August was a good month for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, both of whom reported their best fundraising yet, NBC News reported.

    Clinton brought in $59.5 million and Trump $41 million, according to new Federal Election Commission filings released Tuesday.

    While Clinton raised more than her Republican rival, she also spent more than him. Clinton spent $49.6 million in August, compared to Trump's $29.9 million.

    The fundraising totals are less than what the campaigns had announced earlier this month — those sums included money raised for their joint fundraising committees to help their parties and down-ballot candidates. Those fundraising numbers won't be released until October.

    Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Oct. 20, 2016, Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all the people of the United Staes that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win,” Donald Trump said, emphasizing the last three words by pointing into the crowd. The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up. At the debate, he said he would have to wait and see what the results were. (Published Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016)
