Kamala Harris' 2020 campaign says it raised $11.6 million in the third quarter of 2019, down from $11.8 million last quarter.

The state of play: Harris' Q3 haul is short of Sen. Bernie Sanders, who racked up $25.3 million, and Pete Buttigieg, who raised $19.1 million, but ahead of Cory Booker at $6 million.
