Sanders Campaign Touts Fundraising Record
Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign is bragging about a new fundraising goal. All together, his campaign has received more than 2.3 million donations.
“His campaign has now received more contributions than any other candidate at this point in any White House bid – more than 2.3 million contributions,” read a statement released on Sunday.
“The Sanders campaign crossed that mark during the debate as grassroots supporters flooded the BernieSanders.com website,” the campaign said. “The average contribution for the night to the Sanders campaign was below $25.”
The Hill reports:
News of the record comes after Sanders raised over $1 million last week amid his fight with the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which he has accused of partiality toward front-runner Hillary Clinton.
The statement also pointed to polls taken after the debate that found the self-proclaimed democratic socialist won the contest.
“After the debate, Sanders was named the winner by viewers who voted in large-sample polls from Time, PBC, The Wall Street Journal, Slate, Telegraph.co.uk and The Washington Times,” it said.
“On Time’s website, for example, 84 percent of the 27, 246 who had taken the poll in the first 90 minutes after the debate said Sanders won.”
