Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) raised more than $19 million over the last three months for her 2020 presidential campaign, it was reported Monday.

The progressive Democrat’s $19.1 million haul came thanks to 384,000 donors, who contributed an average of $28 to her bid.

According to Warren’s campaign staff, less than $100,000 of her contributions will be allocated for the 2020 general election.

Given Warren’s new fundraising total, she has now surpassed fellow far-left Democratic 2020 candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), who raised $18 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Leading the pack in second-quarter fundraising among the 2020 Democratic candidates are South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg with $24.8 million and Joe Biden with $21.5 million.


The deadline for candidates to publicly disclose their second-quarter fundraising totals to the Federal Election Commission is July 15.

“I am humbled by the depth of grassroots commitment to our campaign,” Warren tweeted. “This is how we make our government and democracy work for everyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected.”

Warren has been gaining momentum in recent polls for the 2020 election, despite pulling in just $6 million for her campaign in the first quarter of this year. She received mostly positive reviews for her performance in the first-round Democratic debates last month.

Warren has made big moves thus far in her 2020 campaign by announcing plans to break up major tech companies, implement Medicare-for-All and impose a wealth tax on the richest Americans.
