Washington Gov. Jay InsleeJay Robert InsleeOn The Trail: A third coronavirus wave builds just before Election Day Democrats seem unlikely to move against Feinstein Pandemic politics dominate competitive governor's races MORE (D) raised more than $3 million for his presidential bid during the second quarter, according to his campaign.

Inslee's campaign said the haul came from 96,400 donations, with the average contribution being roughly $32 in the second quarter. 

The haul was bigger than the $2.25 million his presidential campaign raised in the first quarter, though Inslee had announced his 2020 bid in early March, more than two months into the quarter. 


The announcement comes as candidates ready their second-quarter fundraising numbers ahead of the Federal Election Commission's filing deadline on Monday. 

Inslee, whose campaign platform is dedicated to combatting climate change, trails a number of other 2020 hopefuls in fundraising.
