Allies of President Donald Trump gloated last week at the news that his campaign outraised each of the Democratic presidential candidates. But when taken together, Democrats are outraising the president to an unprecedented degree.
The top nine remaining candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination combined to raise nearly $400 million in 2019. Trump raised $144 million over the same period. (He raised an additional $67 million in the preceding two years.) There is no recent precedent for the leading presidential candidates of an out-of-power party doubling the fundraising total of the incumbent.
