Hillary Leads in Overseas Fundraisers

Democrat Hillary Clinton is leading all presidential candidates of either party in the number of fundraisers held in foreign countries – and in the amount of money raked in, The Hill reports.

Clinton has held 13 foreign fundraisers from which she has brought in $495,000, according to the report.

Foreign nationals are prohibited by U.S. law from contributing to American elections, but American citizens and green card holders living in other countries are not.
Clinton does not appear to have attended any of the fundraisers, though her daughter Chelsea has. Others surrogates have included singer Tony Bennett and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Locations have included London, Munich, Mexico City and Durban, South Africa, according to information gathered by the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation.

The Hill noted that Clinton’s only remaining Democratic rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has raised less than one fourth Clinton’s half-million dollar mark, but did not give precise figures.

Here’s how much money the three remaining Republicans have taken in from people currently living outside the country:

• Ted Cruz: $23,000
• Donald Trump: $1,100
• John Kasich: $50
