Yang on Dec. 23 set a goal of raising $3 million by the end of the year to help prepare for the debates, boost staff and purchase advertisements.

His campaign raised $10 million in the third quarter, trailing several top-tier candidates but surpassing other White House hopefuls.

Yang has demonstrated unexpected staying power in the 2020 race, outlasting senators and governors who entered the race with higher name recognition but have since withdrawn. He is running in seventh place in the RealClearPolitics polling average of presidential candidates.
