Beto O’Rourke reports raising $9.4 million for his presidential bid

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders I-Vt. speaks at a campaign rally in Los Angeles on March 23. His campaign reported on Tuesday that it raised $18.2 million through the end of the first quarter of the year

There are some concerns that Biden's fundraising apparatus is too old-school - reliant on major donors and bundlers - to compete in the new small-dollar online donations world.

The infighting among 2020 Democratic candidates dredged up arguments over former DNC interim chairman Donna Brazile's collusion with Hillary Clinton's campaign to give her questions prior to March 2016 CNN town halls.

Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur who's never held political office, has raised just US$1.7m, but his campaign says it's come from about 80,000 donors averaging less than US$18 per contribution.

O'Rourke, who joined the race March 14, made a splash with an announcement that he raised $6.1 million during the first 24 hours of his campaign, a figure that exceeded that of Sanders, who reported raising nearly $6 million on his first day.

NBC's Ben Kamisar points out that if you discount the first 24 hours, though, Sanders has actually raised more money per day than O'Rourke: $305,000 per day vs. $194,117 per day.

The Texan owned bragging rights for his first-day haul, collecting far more than most other Democrats seeking the White House in his first 24 hours in the race. Amy Klobuchar and former Gov. John Hickenlooper both said their campaigns took in one-day donations of $1 million.
