Bernie Sanders Holds Significant Lead in Poll of Voters Under 30 :: Politics :: News :: Democratic Primary :: Paste

Senator Bernie Sanders raised a whopping $18.2 million for his presidential campaign in the first quarter of this year, his campaign announced Tuesday.

The money came in the form of almost 900,000 contributions from 525,000 individual donors, according to Shakir.

Sanders's campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, said the total came from 525,000 donors and 900,000 individual donations.

The self-described Democratic socialist failed to win the DNC's backing in the 2016 presidential race, but is off to a fast start in the run-up to 2020, pacing a crowded field of candidates by collecting $18.2 million in contributions in 41 days.

Sanders fueled his unsuccessful 2016 campaign with grassroots giving.

Sanders campaign officials said his first-quarter haul, which included donations from all 50 states, will allow him to expand campaign staff and operations in early voting states in next year's primary contests, which kicks off in Iowa in February.

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced Monday that his campaign raised $7 million in the opening months of 2019, an impressive haul given he was virtually unknown to most Americans just weeks ago. There are some concerns that Biden's fundraising apparatus is too old-school - reliant on major donors and bundlers - to compete in the new small-dollar online donations world. Beto O'Rourke, a charismatic former lawmaker from Texas, is expected to be another strong fundraiser.

Technical issue resolved that halted flights for several carriers
All in all, 1,442 flights were delayed and 151 canceled, according to FlightAware . "There should be minimal delays", Martin said. Southwest Airlines flights were grounded by the outage for roughly 40 minutes, before reporting a resolution around 4:15 a.m.

The totals for the first quarter, which ran to March 31, are the first measure of how candidates are faring.

Buttigieg, who has seen his name recognition and favorability spike in recent days, said he has had 158,550 donors, with an average donation of $36.35, and nearly two-thirds of the money raised was from donations of under $200.

This shift largely reflects politicians reacting to a progressive base that looks with suspicion and distrust on big-money donors.

Sanders' campaign said the makeup of their donors puts the Vermont independent in a good position to continue raking in contributions as the campaign heats up and they begin to set down stakes in new states.

For example, Warren is among the perceived favorites in the field but has promised she'll be financing her campaign without leaning on traditional donors.

Ninety-eight percent of Harris's contributions were under $100, and 99.45 percent of her donors can contribute again, the campaign said. In a recent stop in Atlanta, she held one small-dollar event but also a high-dollar gathering sponsored by bundlers who'd pulled together at least $28,000 for her campaign.
