Sanders Raises $36M in February; Eyes $4M More by Super Tuesday
Bernie Sanders may be slumping in the polls, but the candidate’s war chest is well stocked and saw him raise $36 million in February.
In a statement, he said that he wanted to end the month with $40 million.
“It’s a goal that I don’t know if we can make, but I think it’s very important that we try,” Sanders said.
“[W]e are still up against the billionaire class and their super PACs who are doing everything they can to stop our movement,” he added.
The Hill reports:
Sanders’s fundraising pitch comes ahead of the Federal Election Commission’s midnight deadline for February fundraising.
His cash call also precedes Super Tuesday, when 12 states and U.S. territories will vote in the single biggest day of the Democratic presidential primary so far.
Hillary Clinton dealt Sanders a major blow last Saturday with her landslide win in South Carolina’s primary. The former secretary of State, who won by a 48-point margin in South Carolina, has been victorious in three out of four early voting contests this month.
