The New York Times reported on the current status of 2020 emocratic race.
“Five Democratic presidential candidates raised a combined $96 million from individual donors in the last three months – about three-quarters of the total fund-raising by the entire Democratic field, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday. [The NYT] crunched the latest fund-raising numbers for the candidates, and the findings paint a picture of the diverging fortunes in the 2020 race. The numbers highlight the financial challenges that many of the lesser-known candidates are facing as they seek to keep their campaigns afloat. Mayor Pete Buttigieg more than tripled his fund-raising from the first quarter, as did Senator Elizabeth Warren. Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris raised about the same as in the first quarter. Former Representative Beto O’Rourke took in a fraction of what he raised in the first 18 days of his campaign. And former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. came in second to Mr. Buttigieg, who was virtually unknown only months ago.”
