Sanders Raised $46.5 Million in February the Most Followed by Warren $29 Million and Biden $18 Million

Democratic U.S. presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders attracted $46.5 million in February, his campaign stated Sunday and can launch new TV advert buys in nine states with primaries later this month after this week’s Super Tuesday contests.

Sanders Raised $46.5 Million in February the Most Followed by Warren $29 Million and Biden $18 Million

The declaration came the day after ex-VP Joe Biden recorded a firm triumph over Sanders in South Carolina. That was the fourth nominating contest in the state-by-state Democratic race to select a challenger to Republican President Trump in the November election.

Biden’s campaign reported raising $5 million on the day of the South Carolina primary.

In the meantime, contestant Elizabeth Warren, who struggled to a fifth-place finish in South Carolina, raised over $29 million in February, her campaign manager Roger Lau said in a memo to supporters Sunday. That figure, which was pushed by a pair of strong debate performances in February, is more than Warren’s earlier total for any quarter.

The fundraising haul for Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, came from over 2.2 million donations and surpassed what any Democratic candidate had raised in any full three-month quarter last year.

Seeking to reclaim momentum after the South Carolina result, the Sanders campaign stated he had attracted $4.5 million on Saturday alone – the best fundraising day since he launched his campaign.

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire ex-mayor of New York, is self-funding his campaign and has spent a half-billion dollars to compete in the nominating races beginning in March.
