Sen. Amy KlobucharAmy KlobucharDemocrats mull overhaul of sweeping election bill House unveils antitrust package to rein in tech giants Democrats reintroduce bill to create 'millionaires surtax' MORE's (D-Minn.) presidential campaign said on Friday it brought in $11.4 million, marking a major spike from her third-quarter haul of $4.8 million. 

The latest fundraising haul came from 145,126 donors, according to the campaign. 

Additionally, the campaign highlighted its "grassroots support," noting that the average online donation was $32, and that 92 percent of donors contributed less than $200. 


Klobuchar's fourth-quarter numbers come after she appeared to gain momentum after what was widely seen as a standout debate performance in December. 

The senator has homed in on Iowa ahead of the state's caucuses in February where she has seen a bump in support. 

A Des Moines Register/CNN poll released in late November showed the senator in fifth place at 6 percent support, marking her highest showing yet in the critical caucus state. 

However, the candidates in the race's top tier have continued to outpace Klobuchar in fundraising and polling. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) campaign on Thursday announced a massive fundraising haul of more than $34.5 million in the fourth quarter, while former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign said it raked in more than $24.7 million during the same period.
