Elizabeth Warren of MA, one of the biggest names running, who raised a relatively modest sum of $300,000 on her first partial day in the race.

Senator Bernie Sanders joins former Vice-President Joe Biden atop many polls of prospective Democratic primary voters.

Sanders touts that he's held zero traditional fundraisers and has an average donation of $20 - less than 1% of the $2800 maximum. Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, took in more than $7 million, according to his team. Because campaigns are not required to publicly disclose details of their fundraising and spending until later this month, it's impossible to verify Sanders' self-reported numbers, nor to compare them to those of his rivals. While many Democratic candidates have eschewed raising money in traditional donor circles, Harris has not.

Speaking to Politico for an article published Thursday, the Labour Party's Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon said Sanders, an independent from Vermont who is running for the Democratic Party's nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, is "very exciting as part of an global movement against neoliberal economic inequality".

Former congressman Beto O'Rourke has raised $9.4 million in 18 days, bringing in more money per day than his 2020 competitors, his campaign announced on Wednesday. One Democratic megadonor, Susie Tompkins Buell, already appears to have second thoughts on her preferred candidate, hosting a fundraiser for Buttigieg after endorsing Harris.

"I think they're playing for the long haul here", Shakir said of those donors.

Sanders has $28 million cash on hand, including $14 million the campaign started with.

But O'Rourke's average $48 donation means he can keep coming back to his huge network of online supporters time and again - the same method that he used to set Senate fundraising records in his 2018 bid against Sen. Traditional fundraising isn't going away, Giffin said in a recent interview, "but that grassroots money can more than make up for it, and candidates have to prove they can do that".
