Sanders Campaign Raised $34.5 Million in Third Quarter

HeadlineJan 03, 2020

In more election news, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’s campaign raised over $34.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 — more than any other Democratic candidate and well over $10 million more than former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign. Sanders’s campaign said it raised the $34.5 million from 1.8 million individual donors and that the average donation was $18. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign raised $22.7 million in its fourth quarter. Politico reported last week that Democratic Party officials and insiders — including Hillary Clinton allies — now say it’s possible that Sanders might win the party’s presidential nomination. Party insiders had largely written off Sanders’s campaign. But in recent weeks some have reconsidered his chances as Sanders continues to rise in the polls. President Trump raised significantly more in the fourth quarter of 2019 than any Democratic candidate, including Sanders. He raised a total of $46 million.
