Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has raised more than $6 million in the 24 hours since polls closed Tuesday night in New Hampshire, the Sanders campaign confirmed late Wednesday.

The campaign beat its $6 million fundraising goal and is now urging supporters to donate another $1 million by midnight.

Sanders crushed rival Hillary Clinton in the Granite State. Afterward, he used his victory speech to urge supporters to donate to his campaign.

About 18 hours after the polls closed, Sanders had raised more than $5.2 million, with an average campaign contribution of just $34.

The Vermont senator has been outraising his rival Hillary Clinton of late. In January, he raised $20 million, besting Clinton’s $15 million.
