(Newser) – Bernie Sanders is the third Democratic candidate to release first-quarter fundraising figures, and he easily jumps to No. 1. Sanders says he pulled in $18.2 million in the first three months of the year, with 88% coming from donations of $200 or less, reports the New York Times. Earlier, Kamala Harris announced she raised $12 million and Pete Buttigieg $7 million. A big remaining question: How much will Beto O'Rourke get? Like Sanders, he had raised about $6 million on his campaign's first day. Politico notes that Sanders surpassed his fundraising from the first quarter of his 2016 campaign, when he pulled in $15 million. (Sanders' campaign workers have notched a historic first.)
