Bernie Sanders fundraising request draws $5 million in one day

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Bernie Sanders raised more than $5 million Monday by simply asking his network of small donors for more money.

In the morning, his campaign announced it had raised $36 million in February, and he set a goal of hitting $40 million by the end of the day.

A website tracking the fundraising effort shows the campaign had exceeded $41 million by Monday evening.

Sanders bested Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton in January fundraising. He will have to file February’s campaign finance reports by March 20, a due date for all candidates. Those documents will show how much money he has left for his presidential bid.
