Justin Sullivan/GettySen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) 2020 campaign raised $18.2 million in the first six weeks of his campaign, his campaign manager Faiz Shakir announced on Tuesday. That total came from nearly 900,000 donors and the average contribution was $20. Additionally Shakir said the campaign had $28 million cash on hand, owing to the money it was able to transfer from the Sanders’ Senate campaign committee. Sanders is the third candidate to reveal his first quarter fundraising totals for the crowded 2020 Democratic primary. He outpaced both Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who raised $12 million and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg who raised $7 million since he launched an exploratory committee in January. Read more at The Daily Beast.
