“Trump and Sanders Campaigns Lead 2020 Fund-Raising Race”


The two presidential candidates who entered 2019 with the largest bases of supporters — President Trump and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont — led the 2020 field in fund-raising in the first quarter of the year.

Presidential candidates were under a Monday night deadline to file their fund-raising numbers for the first three months of 2019. The Trump campaign reported bringing in about $30 million in the quarter, while Mr. Sanders’s campaign raised about $18 million in the quarter.
Other Democrats reporting large hauls to the Federal Election Commission included Senator Kamala Harris of California, whose campaign raised about $12 million, and former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas, whose campaign raised more than $9 million.
