Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party raised $154 million in September, the Clinton campaign announced on Saturday, and enter the final weeks of the presidential campaign with a combined cash reserve of $150 million.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign took in $84 million last month, which officials said was the best fund-raising month of the campaign. The figures leave Mrs. Clinton well positioned for a final spending splurge on television, digital outreach and field mobilization as polls show her moving slightly ahead of Donald J. Trump.

The figures show Mrs. Clinton behind the blazing pace set by President Obama in his 2012 re-election bid, when Mr. Obama and the Democrats raised $181 million in September.

The Clinton campaign did not release details that would provide insight into her small-donor fund-raising in September.

Mr. Trump has not yet announced his September fund-raising totals, but this week said he raised $18 million after the first debate, on Monday. That money was a mix of large and small donations, he said.

Both candidates and their parties will be required to report more detailed information this month.
