Steve Bullock's 2020 campaign says it raised $2.3 million in the 3rd quarter of the year. His numbers are among the smallest of any other Democratic candidate who has revealed fundraising details for this term.

By the numbers: The campaign improved on the $2 million it raked in last quarter, and doubled the previous number of individual contributions. 97% of those were under $200.

What they're saying: "This campaign is built to go the distance, which is why Gov. Bullock will continue fighting for his vision of an America where everyone has a fair shot at a better life,” Bullock campaign manager Jenn Ridder said.

State of play: Sen. Bernie Sanders leads the pack with a haul of $25.3 million.

Editor's note: This story has been corrected to reflect that Bullock's campaign did not have the lowest fundraising numbers of the 3rd quarter. Michael Bennet raised $2.1 million.

Context: Former President Obama and the Democratic National Committee raised approximately $70 million for his re-election campaign in 2011's third quarter. "Trump is going to have more resources to deploy earlier and more aggressively than any candidate in history," Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser to Obama, tweeted in response to the news on Oct. 1, when the campaign first announced the haul.

Elizabeth Warren's campaign said on Friday that it raised $24.6 million in the third quarter of 2019, putting her just behind Bernie Sanders for this quarter's fundraising among 2020 Democrats.

Why it matters: Warren swore off "big money fundraisers" at the start of this cycle, but she's managed to rake in a massive amount of money from grassroots, small-dollar donors.
