Sanders Raised $3M in 24 Hours, His Biggest Single Day Yet
Bernie Sanders performed exceptionally well in Iowa, losing only to a convoluted coin toss.
Since Monday, Sanders campaign has raised $3 million, the “best day ever” for his campaign.
The Hill reports:
Sanders finished behind rival Hillary Clinton by a razor-thin margin of 0.2 points in the Iowa caucuses Monday night. Clinton had 49.8 percent and Sanders took 49.6 percent.
Most of the money raised by Sanders is in the form of small online contributions, averaging about $27 each.
Sanders’ campaign announced Sunday that it raised $20 million in January.
“The numbers we’ve seen since Jan. 1 put our campaign on pace to beat Secretary Clinton’s goal of $50 million in the first quarter of 2016,” Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver said in a statement.
“Working Americans chipping in a few dollars each month are not only challenging but beating the greatest fundraising machine ever assembled.”
