Sen. Kamala Harris Raises $12 Million In First Quarter

Politico reports:

Kamala Harris on Monday announced raising $12 million over the first quarter of her presidential campaign, setting an early high bar for the sprawling Democratic field challenging President Donald Trump in 2020.

Harris’ number is certain to be eclipsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, who each raised about $6 million in the first 24 hours of their campaigns, but it establishes a benchmark for the other Democrats who are competing for donors in an exceedingly crowded environment.

Harris’ campaign stressed that she’s seeking donations only for the primary election — and that 99.45 percent of her donors can contribute again because they didn’t hit the maximum for the primary and general election.

Yesterday Mayor Pete revealed a $7 million fundraising haul in the same period.
