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.

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.

Sen. Cory Booker's campaign said Friday it raised $6.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The state of play: While the Q4 sum is the biggest the Booker campaign has collected during his presidential run, it is still smaller than the majority of his 2020 rivals who have thus far announced their numbers for the quarter.
