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.
