The Hill reports:
Both Clinton and her Dem rival, Bernie Sanders, have sought to play up contributions from small donors.
Sanders has tried to tie Clinton to Wall Street, claiming he doesn’t accept money from “millionaires and billionaires.” He has solicited an average of $27 from more than 5.7 million individual contributions.
The Sanders campaign (sub?)tweeted this:
