Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders has raised $18.2 million in the first 41 days of his campaign, according to campaign manager Faiz Shakir.
Shakir told reporters on a conference call Tuesday that Sanders had $28 million cash-on-hand, thanks to funds already in the campaign’s accounts from previous efforts. He also noted that the average donation from 900,000 individuals was $20 — down from $27 in the 2016 presidential primary. And 88% of the money reportedly came from donations of $200 or less.
By contrast, fellow presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris has raised $12 million.
