Sanders campaign raised massive $46.5 million in February

The Democratic presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders announced Sunday that it has raised $46.5 million during February from 2.2 million donations.

The haul, the best fundraising month of the campaign, came as the candidate took first place in New Hampshire and Nevada and finished in a virtual tie with Pete Buttigieg in Iowa.

“The senator’s multigenerational, multiracial working-class coalition keeps fueling his campaign for transformational change a few bucks at a time,” campaign manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement Sunday. “We’re especially proud that of the more than 2 million donations we received this month, over 1.4 million were from voters in states that vote on Super Tuesday.”

It raised $4.5 million the last day of the month.

Coming off Sanders’ second-place finish behind Joe Biden in South Carolina on Saturday, his campaign said that it will make television ad buys in nine states with primary contests on March 10 and March 17.

It also has ads running in 12 of the 14 states voting on March 3, Super Tuesday.

Sanders has raised more than $167 million from 8.7 million individual donors since entering the race in February 2019.
