Sen. Cory Booker's 2020 presidential campaign said Tuesday that it raised more than $6 million in 2019's third quarter.

Why it matters: Last week, Booker's campaign disclosed it needed to raise at least $1.7 million within the final 10 days of Q3 — or he would be forced to drop out of the primary contest.

  • Q3 ended up being the campaign's best fundraising quarter so far, Booker's campaign manager Addisu Demissie tweeted.

By the numbers: In 10 days, the campaign said it raised $2,159,165.34 from more than 46,000 donations.

What's next: The Booker campaign wants to raise $3 million for the month of October to help expand resources and climb ahead in the polls.

  • Booker's deputy campaign manager Jenna Lowenstein tweeted plans on Tuesday to open new field offices and welcome 40 new staff members in the weeks to come.
