Author Marianne Williamson says her presidential campaign raised "about $3 million" in the latest fundraising quarter, doubling its 2nd quarter haul of $1.5 million.

The state of play: Of the candidates who have announced their final numbers for the quarter, Williamson is well behind pack leader Bernie Sanders' $25.3 million and Pete Buttigieg's $19.1 million.

  • It also falls behind some middle-tier candidates like Andrew Yang, who raised $10 million, and Cory Booker, who brought in more than $6 million.

What they're saying: Williamson called the campaign finance system "obscene" in an interview with Yahoo Finance when she announced her numbers, but said that she will not suspend her campaign as long as people are showing up at her events.
