Other candidates in the race have yet to announce their fundraising numbers, but indications are that some White House hopefuls may post totals easily exceeding those of both Harris and Buttigieg. The average age of donors was under 39 years old, he said.
According to Bret Baier, there are more candidates where he came from.
After all, he was an unknown mayor of a smallish city. Buttigieg was the momentum candidate for much of the past month; his fundraising will do nothing to slow that momentum, and might even increase it.
The campaign raised an average of $522,000 per day, putting his pace above that of Sen.
Besides Sanders, Senator Kamala Harris of California put up an impressive US$12m haul. Which is $15 million more than I have ever raised, but is nowhere near the past fundraising totals of Warren ($40+ million raised in 2016) and O'Rourke ($80 million raised in 2018). She earned donations from 218,000 individual contributions in the first quarter of 2019.

And when the Otay Mesa, California, entry port closed for the night Monday, 150 trucks were still waiting to get into the U.S. But Trump also this week was reportedly weighing the appointment of a border "czar" to combat what he has called a "crisis".
Final fundraising tallies from January through March won't come out until April 15 when candidates officially file their numbers with the FEC. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who raised $18.2 million in the first 41 days of his presidential campaign and Sen.
In just the first 24 hours of his 2020 campaign Sanders had brought in $5.9 million. O'Rourke says his haul means he "remains the highest per-day raising candidate".
Mr. O'Rourke proved to be a prolific fundraiser in his failed challenge against Republican Sen.
The money came in the form of almost 900,000 contributions from 525,000 individual donors, according to Shakir. His opponent, Hillary Clinton, did not.
Like O'Rourke, we've yet to hear how much the MA senator raised in the first three months of the year.
Daily Wire Editor-at-Large Josh Hammer congratulated Sanders on his decision to appear, tweeting, "Honestly, good for Bernie for doing this on Fox News". 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. Rather, they emphasised that 98 per cent of her contributors gave less than US$100. She has just $1.3 million to transfer to her presidential campaign. His most recent Fox News appearance was on Baier's Special Report in December. That will tell the tale.
