Sanders has led the Democratic field in the Granite State in most polls ahead of Tuesday’s first-in-the-nation primary, but Klobuchar has seen increased crowd sizes in the past week as well as polling indicating a possible third-place finish in the state behind the Vermont senator and Buttigieg. Her campaign said she raised $1 million during Friday’s Democratic debate and another $3 million over the weekend.
