Hillary Clinton’s campaign went into June with $42,461,785.99 cash on hand, according to her end-of-May Federal Election Commission filing released today.

Donald Trump reported $1,289,507.76 cash on hand at the beginning of June in his FEC filing released tonight. In his campaign’s end-of-April report, he had $2,408,641.95 cash on hand.

Trump secured enough delegates to become the presumptive GOP presidential nominee at the end of May.

His cash on hand is on par with a House campaign, though his total is behind all of the top 50 House members. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) leads that list with more than $7.6 million in his campaign war chest.

Clinton’s competitor, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), still has not dropped out of the race but she has a sizable delegate advantage going into the Philadelphia convention at the end of July.

Hillary for America and the Hillary Victory Fund reported $28,275,817.46 raised in May from about 430,000 contributors.

The campaign debt stands at $1,228,227.95.

“We’re starting the general election in strong financial shape thanks to the support of more than 1.3 million people and strategic investments that helped us conserve our resources,” Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, said in a statement. “That grassroots support will be critical to our success and will ensure that we have the resources we need to communicate Hillary Clinton’s message that we are stronger together.”

The Trump campaign did not immediately issue a statement about the FEC numbers, and Trump had not tweeted about them.

The Republican National Committee filing reports just over $3 million raised in May jointly with Trump’s victory committee.

By comparison, in May 2012 Mitt Romney raised $25.9 million with the RNC.

The RNC raised $13,043,983.22 overall in May. Four years ago, the end-of-May report showed a $34,279,722.29 haul.
