The figure, announced by Biden and his campaign manager, Jennifer O'Malley Dillon, on Twitter means that the former vice president will go into the remaining weeks of the election with $432 million in the bank, an impressive figure to fund last-minute advertising.

"To every person who chipped in a few dollars last month — thank you. Because of your support, we raised an astounding $383 million," tweeted Biden late Wednesday evening. "I'm incredibly humbled."

"You heard it from the VP: our grassroots community of donors helped us raise $383 million in September — a record," Dillon tweeted. "Millions of Americans ... chose to donate $5, $10 to be part of this campaign — because they believe in unity over division, truth over lies, hope over fear, and love over hate."

President Trump's reelection campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.

News of Biden's fundraising total comes as polls have shown him leading Trump in a number of swing states as well as nationally, where he holds a double-digit lead over the president in some polling.

A poll from three universities released Sunday found Trump trailing Biden in three states seen as key to Biden's victory: Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
