Sanders Outraised Clinton in April

Even as critics called Bernie Sander’s campaign dead, he continued to outraise Hillary Clinton in April.

The Hill reports:

The Vermont senator raised $26.9 million, outpacing Clinton’s $25 million, according to Federal Elections Commission reports filed on Friday.

The Sanders campaign, however, was spending faster than it was fundraising, burning through $38.6 million throughout the month — 143 percent of what they raised. The campaign started May with $5.8 million cash on hand.

Meanwhile Clinton ended April with $30.1 million cash on hand, which may help her campaign fend off any last-ditch attacks from Sanders, who, despite narrowing chances of winning the nomination, has vowed to campaign until the convention in July.
