U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren raised $24.6 million in the past three months of her presidential bid, continuing her upward fundraising trajectory and reflecting her campaign’s continued rise over the calendar year.
The $24.6 million haul puts Warren in second place so far for third-quarter fundraising, just behind fellow progressive U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has topped the field so far with $25.3 million.
And it’s Warren’s highest fundraising sum yet. The Massachusetts senator brought in just $6 million in the first quarter, tripling that to $19.1 million over the second quarter as she continues her rise in the polls.
“This means our grassroots movement is in an incredible position,” Roger Lau, her campaign manager, said in an email to supporters.
Warren received more than 940,000 donations from 500,000 people in the past three months, with an average contribution of $26.
She recently announced a $10 million ad buy in the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, and her campaign said it will staff up in the states that follow with primaries and caucuses in March.
Sanders and Warren dominated the money race on the Democratic side the past three months, despite forswearing large donor fundraisers. They outpaced key rivals former Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris by several million dollars, even as the latter two criss-crossed the country to attend fundraising events.
As it stands, Sanders has raised the most on the Democratic side in past three months with his $25.3 million haul, the highest of any Democratic presidential hopeful per quarter thus far. Warren is second with $24.6 million. South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $19.1 million, Biden, raised $15.2 million, Harris earned $11.6 million and entrepreneur Andrew Yang posted $10 million. U.S. Sen. Cory Booker brought in about $6 million — $2 million of which came after his campaign pleaded with supporters to pitch in to keep him in the race. Author Marianne Williamson announced she raised $3 million, and U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet said he raised $2.1 million.
President Trump and the Republican National Committee raised a combined $125 million in the third quarter.
