Bernie Sanders Leads Democratic Fundraising With $18.2 Million Haul

Bernie Sanders Holds Significant Lead in Poll of Voters Under 30

Speaking to Politico for an article published Thursday, the Labour Party's Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon said Sanders, an independent from Vermont who is running for the Democratic Party's nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, is "very exciting as part of an worldwide movement against neoliberal economic inequality".

The campaign said that "a majority" of O'Rourke's presidential donors had not contributed to his campaign a year ago for a Senate seat from Texas in which he came up short against Sen.

O'Rourke's campaign has averaged $522,000 a day, Sanders' has averaged $444,000 a day, Harris averaged $171,000 a day, and Buttigieg averaged $103,000 a day.

As impressive as Sanders' fundraising has been, it's not as large as previous presidential contenders who were more reliant on big donors. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) raised $7 million since he entered the race, a strong showing for a candidate who began the campaign with little name recognition.

The Vermont senator brought in $18.2 million, though he had 41 days between jumping into the race and the end of the first quarter of 2019.

In a video released on Tuesday, the candidate offered more details on the numbers, disclosing that his campaign received donations from 155,550 individuals, with the average donation totaling $36.35.

Sanders has $28 million cash on hand, including $14 million the campaign started with.

Beto O'Rourke raised $9.4 million in his first 18 days as a presidential candidate - enough to put him in third place so far in the money chase.

Candidates are required by law to track and report all campaign donations.

The profession with the most donors to Sanders' campaign was teachers, according to Shakir. Candidates can qualify by raising money from a minimum of 65,000 individual donors or by receiving at least 1% of support in three primary polls - as of now Sanders and Harris have both qualified. Harris is the only candidate of that group to release her fundraising totals. Plus, he did it with more small donors than any other candidate so far, leading the pack among the sought-after demographic. They are also likely to invest in the campaign in other ways, such as knocking on doors or phone banking.

"There have been no high-dollar fundraising events, there's no kowtowing at the altars of the rich ... that is not this campaign", said Faiz Shakir, Sanders' 2020 campaign manager. "That's not this campaign".
