Sanders Out-Raises Clinton for Third Month in a Row With $46M Haul
Even as Bernie Sander’s campaign nears its end, its finances are still incredibly strong after it hauled in another $46 million in March.
“Bernie’s grassroots campaign has now out-raised Secretary Hillary Clinton for three months straight,” said Jeff Weaver, Sanders’s campaign manager, said in a statement late Wednesday.
“We’re honored to have the strong support of 2.2 million passionate donors who have given more than 7 million times,” he added. “It’s because of them that our campaign can take on the establishment and win eight of the last ten primaries and caucuses.”
The Hill reports:
The campaign said it received 1.7 million contributions from more than 900,000 individual donors last month to raise its total fundraising to $200 million since the Vermont senator announced his candidacy one year ago.
The average contribution for the month was $26.20, the Sanders campaign said, adding that it has more than $17 million on hand.
