WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. presidential campaign. (all times EDT):

Hillary Clinton says she raised $63 million for her campaign last month.

The Democratic presidential nominee raised another $26 million in July for the Democratic National Committee and state parties.

Clinton has been focusing on improving her online fundraising, and the campaign says it saw its best 24-hour period in that area last week as she accepted the nomination. She raised $8.7 million online that day, the campaign says.

Both Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — who earlier said he raised $35.8 million in small donations last month — must report their fundraising information to federal regulators by Aug. 20.

For Donald Trump, it’s become a familiar pattern. The Republican nominee can’t let go of a perceived slight, no matter the potential damage to his presidential campaign or political reputation.

Trump spent the days after winning the Republican nomination criticizing a U.S. district court judge’s Mexican heritage. The morning after accepting the Republican nomination at the party’s convention, Trump re-litigated months-old grievances with primary rival Ted Cruz.

Now, he’s sparring with an American Muslim family whose son was killed in Iraq.

Republican leaders have urged Trump to drop his attacks on Khizr and Ghazala Khan. It’s not just the optics of picking a fight with a military family that has GOP officials eager for Trump to move on, but the timing of his attacks: Election Day is three months away.
