Sanders Raises $1.3M With Email Remark

Sen. Bernie Sanders could have criticized fellow Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton over her email scandal, but he chose to offer a truce and to focus on the debate at hand.

“Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the secretary is right. And that is, that the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damned emails!”

Sanders comment was re-tweeted many times and saw him raise nearly $1.3 million following the debate. In addition, he dominated Google Trends and many critics believe that he won the debate.

The Hill reports:

Sanders was also listed as the top candidate discussed during the debate on Facebook.

The self-described democratic socialist has an avid online following, which often boosts his social media profile even during Republican presidential debates.

Sanders’s campaign reported raising $26 million during the previous quarter this year, closely behind Clinton’s $28 million. That included $2 million in online donations for Sanders on the final filing day of that quarter.
