Sen. Bernie Sanders has received $10 million from 359,914 donors since launching his 2020 presidential bid last week Tuesday, campaign officials told the New York Times in a report Monday, cementing him as the financial front-runner in an increasingly crowded Democratic field.

The details: Officials reportedly said almost 39% of the donors have used email addresses that weren't previously given to the Sanders campaign — suggesting that the senator is expanding the donor network for his second White House bid (though some may have updated their contact information). In the first 24 hours of his announcement, the campaign had said Sanders raised $5.9 million from 225,000 individuals donors.

By the numbers, per the Times:

  • The average contribution was under $26.
  • As of Monday, 20 gave the Sanders the legal maximum of $2,800; 46 gave $2,700, the limit in the 2016 campaign.
  • 48,000 have signed to make recurring donations from their credit cards
  • More than 108,000 of the first day donors were 39 years old and younger, giving $2.5 million of the $5.9 million raised.
  • $3 million on the first day came directly from mobile devices

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
