Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign said Thursday that it raised $34.5 million in 2019's fourth quarter, the New York Times reports.

Why it matters: Sanders' haul is the most any candidate has raised in a single quarter so far in the Democratic primary race, easily surpassing the $25.3 million he raked in during Q3.

  • Sanders received more than 1.8 million donations in the quarter, with an average donation of $18.53.

The state of play: While Sanders is one of the first candidates to announce his fundraising for the quarter, it's unlikely to be topped by any of his competitors.

  • Pete Buttigieg's campaign said it raised $24.7 million during the same span, while Andrew Yang's campaign announced it had pulled in $16.5 million.
  • Elizabeth Warren's campaign warned its supporters last week that it had only raised $17 million, triggering a fundraising push to reach $20 million by the end of the year.

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.

2020 candidates' Q4 fundraising hauls

Bernie Sanders leads the way in fourth quarter fundraising hauls among the Democratic hopefuls who have already announced their numbers, with $34.5 million raised.

By the numbers: Sanders is followed by Pete Buttigieg at $24.7 million — but the Democratic candidates all trail President Trump, whose re-election campaign reportedly collected $46 million.

Andrew Yang's 2020 presidential campaign said Thursday that it raised $16.5 million during 2019's fourth quarter, reports the New York Times.

Why it matters: It's Yang's best quarter yet, topping the $10 million he raised in the third quarter, and is likely to put him among the top fundraisers in the crowded Democratic field.
