Elizabeth Warren's campaign said on Friday that it raised $24.6 million in the third quarter of 2019, putting her just behind Bernie Sanders for this quarter's fundraising among 2020 Democrats.
Why it matters: Warren swore off "big money fundraisers" at the start of this cycle, but she's managed to rake in a massive amount of money from grassroots, small-dollar donors.
By the numbers:
- The average contribution to her campaign was $26.
- More than 300,000 people donated to her for the first time in Q3, the campaign said.
- And they've received just under 1 million donations so far this cycle (943,000).
- The campaign also said it has $25.7 million in cash-on-hand.
What they're saying: "This means our grassroots movement is in an incredible position," the campaign said in a statement, "to double down on our investments in grassroots organizing."
The state of play: Sanders raised $25.3 million from 1.4 million donations — the most of any Democratic presidential candidate in Q3.
Where other Democratic candidates stand:
- Mayor Pete Buttigieg: $19.1 million
- Former Vice President Joe Biden: $15.2 million
- Sen. Kamala Harris: $11.6 million
- Former tech executive Andrew Yang: $10 million
- Sen. Cory Booker: $6 million
- Author Marianne Williamson: $3 million
