Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic convention helped her campaign raise about $90 million in July, its best monthly fundraising total.

Her campaign ended July with more than $58 million in cash, a boost from $44.4 million at the end of June, her campaign said Tuesday. Republican rival Donald Trump, who ended June with more than $20 million in available cash, said Monday "we've raised, we think, about $35.8 million."

For comparison, in July 2012 President Barack Obama's campaign raised more than $75 million, while Mitt Romney's campaign raised over $100 million.

The Clinton campaign's average donation in July was $44 and nearly 54 percent of donations during the month came from new donors, according to the campaign's release.

"We come out of the Democratic National Convention with our party united and our supporters energized for the final 98 days of this campaign," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said in the statement.

In total, roughly $63 million will go to the Hillary for America campaign, with about $26 million raised for the Democratic National Committee and state parties, according to the announcement.

The Clinton campaign said it saw "its best 24-hour period for online fundraising" from at 8 p.m. Thursday to 8 p.m. Friday EDT. She delivered her acceptance speech late Thursday.
