“Just as @amyklobuchar said, Team Amy redefined grit, and tonight’s results proved that our grassroots support continues to surge! Thanks to the team’s strong showing, we raised more than $2.5 million since the polls closed,” tweeted Justin Buoen, Klobuchar’s campaign manager.

The windfall came after Klobuchar’s third-place finish in the Granite State’s primary, posting a stronger-than-expected showing and outpacing big names like Sen.

She had been buoyed by another surge of support following a strong debate performance Friday, which led to a $2 million fundraising spree in the following hours.

“Everyone had counted us out — even a week ago," Klobuchar told a crowd in New Hampshire as primary results rolled in. "I came back, and we delivered."

Klobuchar’s campaign will head into Nevada’s caucuses next week with a boost but faces an uphill climb to make gains in the state’s electorate. The RealClearPolitics polling average in Nevada shows her trailing five other 2020 contenders with just 3 percent of the vote. 

Klobuchar is releasing two ads in the Las Vegas and Reno markets Wednesday as a result of a seven-figure ad buy to gin up support in the Silver State.
