Sen. Amy Klobuchar's presidential campaign announced Monday that it raised $4.8 million in the third quarter of 2019, nearly $1 million more than her fundraising haul in Q2.

Context: Klobuchar's third quarter figures put her well behind Democratic fundraising leaders Bernie Sanders at $25.3 million and Elizabeth Warren at $24.6 million. President Trump and the RNC, meanwhile, say they jointly raised an eye-popping $125 million, setting a new presidential fundraising record.

What they're saying: "These investments, along with stand-out debate performances from Senator Klobuchar and effective organizing across the early states, enabled us to easily meet the debate thresholds for September and October and surpass the required unique donor number for the November debate," Klobuchar's campaign said in a statement.

By the numbers:

  • The average contribution to Klobuchar's campaign was $29.78.
  • 89.7% of donors to the campaign donated less than $100.
  • Klobuchar had "more than 105,000 donors" contribute to her campaign in Q3.

The big picture: This is where Klobuchar ranks among the Democrats who have released their Q3 figures...

  1. Sen. Bernie Sanders: $25.3M
  2. Sen. Elizabeth Warren: $24.6M
  3. Mayor Pete Buttigieg: $19.1M
  4. Former Vice President Joe Biden: $15.2M
  5. Sen. Kamala Harris: $11.6M
  6. Andrew Yang: $10M
  7. Sen. Cory Booker Booker: $6M
  8. Sen. Amy Klobuchar: $4.8M
  9. Marianne Williamson: $3M
  10. Gov. Steve Bullock: $2.3M
  11. Sen. Michael Bennet: $2.1M

Billionaire and 2020 Democratic candidate Tom Steyer's campaign said Thursday that it raised more than $2 million in the 3rd quarter.

The big picture: Steyer vowed upon launch to spend $100 million of his own money, largely accumulated during his time as a hedge fund manager. Thus far, he's focused his campaign's spending in the early states, running ads that have helped boost his polling numbers just high enough to qualify for the October and November debates.

2020 Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised more than $1 million each in campaign donations in less than 24 hours after Tuesday's debate in Ohio, according to the New York Times.

Between the lines: Buttigieg and Klobuchar, who have both positioned themselves as moderates in the Democratic field, were two of the candidates to go hardest after progressive frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren, especially on how she would pay for her Medicare for All health care plan. With a weakened Joe Biden reporting rather anemic Q3 fundraising numbers, the two Midwesterners are looking to siphon off moderate support.

Bernie Sanders currently leads all 2020 Democrats in Q3 fundraising with $25.3 million, followed by Elizabeth Warren with $24.6 million, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg with $19.1 million. President Trump's re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee recently said they raised a whopping $125 million for Q3, setting a new presidential fundraising record.
