In his victory speech, Sanders made a fundraising pitch to his supporters across the country.

"I am going to New York City tonight and tomorrow, but I’m not going to New York City to hold a fundraiser on Wall Street. Instead, I’m going to hold a fundraiser right here, right now, across America," he said, telling supporters to contribute on his website.

"Help up us raise the money we need to take the fight to Nevada, South Carolina, and the states on Super Tuesday.”

More than a dozen states hold primaries or caucuses on Tuesday, March 1, representing the bulk of delegates so far.

Sanders outraised Clinton $20 million to $15 million in January and often boasts about the small size of his average donation, $27.
