Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden didn’t appear to get any kind of post-convention bounce in the polls – but he’s definitely getting a huge boost in fundraising.

The former vice president’s campaign is expected to announce this week a record-breaking August haul of more than $300 million, according to a report from the New York Times.

The fundraising – split between the Biden campaign, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and their shared committees – would appear to shatter the previous monthly record by a presidential campaign, which was set by then-Democratic nominee Barack Obama in September of 2008.

The Biden campaign had no comment when asked by Fox News about the fundraising report.

But in an email sent to supporters on Tuesday titled “I’m blown away,” Biden wrote “thank you for everything you did to support this campaign in August. Supporters like you are the reason why I’m more confident than ever that we will win this fight, and I’m grateful to you from the bottom of my heart.”
