CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton raised about $26 million in April for her primary race against Bernie Sanders, her campaign said, as her rival’s fundraising juggernaut slowed.

Sanders’ take for April was a little under Clinton’s, marking a steep decline from the $46 million he raised in March. He did not report how much money he has on hand, raising questions about whether he can sustain his long-robust online fundraising as his path to the nomination narrows.

Clinton’s campaign said she had $30 million in the bank heading into May. She had about $29 million at the start of last month.

The former Secretary of State has raised $213.5 million in primary campaign funds and more than $46 million for the national and various state Democratic parties. The ex-New York Senator and former First Lady campaigned in Kentucky and West Virginia on Monday.
