Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar says she raised $5.2 million in seven weeks after announcing her 2020 bid, the AP reports. The Minnesota senator said Monday she ended the first quarter with $7 million cash on hand. That includes more than $3 million from her 2018 Senate campaign. Klobuchar had a small fundraising edge over New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who said he raised over $5 million in the two months after entering the 2020 primary.
Their first-quarter numbers were dwarfed by some other candidates. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says he raised more than $18 million, while California Sen. Kamala Harris brought in $12 million. Beto O'Rourke raised more than $9 million, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg says he raised more than $7 million. Klobuchar says her average online contribution was $40, and 85% of donors gave less than $100.
