President Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised approximately five times as much as the leading Democratic candidate fundraiser during the third quarter.
Trump and the RNC combined to raise about $125 million in the third quarter, which broke a presidential fundraising record. Since the beginning of the year, they have raised more than $308 million and have a war chest of more than $156 million in the bank.
Comparatively, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont led the 2020 Democratic presidential field in fundraising for the third quarter, and he raised only $25.3 million. His rival Sen Elizabeth Warren just barely lost to him, raising approximately $700,000 less than Sanders. No other candidate surpassed $20 million.
“Americans are voting with their wallets right now and President Trump and the RNC are the clear winners, no Democrat is coming close. In the first 48 hours since Democrats launched their bogus impeachment inquiry, we’ve added 50,000 new online donors, a clear sign enthusiasm is on our side,” RNC spokesman Steve Guest stated.
The next four candidates in fundraising for the quarter were South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg at $19.1 million, former Vice President Joe Biden, who raked in $15.2 million, Sen. Kamala Harris at $11.6 million, and Andrew Yang who raised $10 million.
