Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was expected to report a record fundraising haul of more than $300 million for the month of August, the New York Times reported on Tuesday citing two sources familiar with the matter.

Biden, who is leading Republican incumbent President Donald Trump in most national opinion polls, raised $140 million in July, but was expected to see a boost from the Democratic National Convention that was held virtually from Aug. 17 to Aug. 20.
