Elizabeth Warren's campaign says it raised $21.2 million in Q4
Elizabeth Warren's 2020 presidential campaign said Friday that it raised $21.2 million during 2019's fourth quarter.
Why it matters: It's a disappointing haul for the Massachusetts senator, who raised $24.6 million last quarter, and coincides with a sustained drop in her polling after she briefly challenged Joe Biden for frontrunner status in October.
- The campaign sent out an unusual SOS to supporters last week, warning that it had only raised $17 million for the quarter as of Dec. 27. It set a goal of $20 million.
- As a result, it said it raised $4 million during the last five days of the quarter and $1.5 million on New Year's Eve alone.
- Over the course of the year, Warren raised more than $71 million from almost a million people.
Where it stands: Warren's fundraising means she's bringing up the rear of the group of Democratic frontrunners for this past quarter.
- Bernie Sanders led the way with his $34.5 million, followed by Pete Buttigieg ($24.7 million) and Joe Biden ($22.7 million).
- Andrew Yang is on top of the second tier with $16.5 million, followed by Amy Klobuchar's $11.4 million and Tulsi Gabbard's $3.4 million.
- President Trump's campaign says that it raised $46 million in Q4.
