Booker brings in $4.5 million in second quarter

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) raised $4.5 million in the second quarter, according to his presidential campaign. 

Booker's campaign reported that 88 percent of donors in the second quarter were first-time donors to the campaign and that the campaign will report having $5.4 million cash on hand. 

The haul trails Bookers' first-quarter fundraising, which came in at $5 million. 

The announcement comes as Booker's fellow presidential candidates follow their second-quarter filings with the Federal Election Commission. 

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg leads the quarter two fundraising pack, raising $24.8 million in the past three months. Former Vice President Joe Biden raked in $21.5 million in that same period. 

Booker leads former Rep. Beto O'Rouke (D-Texas), who announced a haul of around $3.6 million in the second quarter. 

He also leads fellow Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), who brought in $2.3 million and over $3 million, respectively, during the second quarter.
