A super PAC backing Hillary Clinton's presidential bid raised nearly $10 million in July, getting a $3 million chunk from hedge fund manager Donald Sussman.
The organization, Priorities USA Action, reported it had $38.7 million on hand at the end of July, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. It spent about $11.4 million for the month.
The PAC is separate from the Democratic presidential nominee's campaign committee and cannot coordinate with it. But it has funded pro-Clinton ad campaigns and other efforts.
Sussman, the president of Paloma Partners Advisors, has now given $8.5 million to Priorities USA Action. Paloma is a $4 billion hedge fund based in Connecticut that had an 11 percent return in 2015,. He has a history of giving to Democratic candidates and groups.
The PAC also received $3 million in July from Daniel Abraham, the founder of Slim-Fast.
Clinton's ties to big-ticket donors and the investing community have opened her to criticism from both her opponent Donald Trump and the progressive wing of her party.
