Republican nominee Donald Trump is putting $10 million in last-minute cash into his campaign account — less than he originally promised, but a sign of life from his campaign in its final week and a half.

Trump's team will use the money "to boost its television and digital presence and its ground game in the final push to Election Day," especially in battleground states ahead of Nov. 8, a senior adviser told NBC News.

The infusion doesn't quite bring Trump to $66 million of his own money invested in his campaign — still short of his original $100 million goal.

Still, the campaign of his Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton, has a sizable cash advantage with $153 million in the bank as of last week, according to the Federal Election Commission.

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway indicated to Fox News Friday morning that Trump still plans to meet that original goal.

"He will continue to make investments into his campaign, including in these last 11 days," she said. "He has said publicly many times he is in for $100 million, and he is happy to invest in his campaign."
