Amy Klobuchar's 2020 presidential campaign said Friday that it raised $11.4 million during 2019's fourth quarter, Politico reports.

Why it matters: It's the best quarter yet for the moderate Minnesota senator, who pulled in just $4.8 million in Q3, boosted by strong debate performances in the later portion of the year.

  • The cash influx gives Klobuchar a chance to make a strong play in Iowa, the first caucus state and a key to her momentum-building strategy.
  • Her campaign said the average online donation in Q4 was $32, but did not specify how much cash it still had on hand.

Where it stands: Despite her significant fundraising jump, Klobuchar's haul still places her near the back of the Democratic pack's fundraising this past quarter.
