Hillary Clinton painted August green, according to newly released campaign finance disclosures.
The Democratic presidential candidate raised more money than Republican Donald Trump.
Clinton’s campaign spent more money than the Trump campaign, too.
And Clinton enjoyed an $18 million cash-on-hand advantage over her opponent at August’s end — not including an even larger disparity when big-money super PACs are taken into account.
