Warren says she raised $29 million in February
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) presidential campaign said on Sunday that it brought in more than $29.3 million in February, marking its best month of fundraising to date.
Warren’s donations last month averaged $31, campaign manager Roger Lau said in a memo.
Warren saw a surge in donations after her strong performance in the Nevada debate, with her campaign raising $2.8 million in one day. It also raised more than $9.5 million in the period between Wednesday and Friday of that week.
With the influx of donations, the campaign is now increasing its spending in Super Tuesday states to more than $2.4 million on TV, digital and traditional media advertising, Lau said.
“We’ve already reserved media across key markets in Arizona, Illinois, and Georgia — and into Wisconsin, which finishes voting in April. We’re in this race for the long haul,” he said.
Despite Warren’s fundraising haul, she has yet to win a contest in the first four voting states.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is leading the 2020 Democratic presidential field, but former Vice President Joe Biden has pulled into second place in terms of pledged delegates after winning Saturday’s South Carolina primary.
Sanders’s campaign announced that it raised more than $46 million in February, hauling in more than $4.5 million on Saturday alone.
Biden, who has lagged behind in fundraising throughout the race, announced Sunday his campaign raised $5 million in the past 24 hours during the South Carolina primary. Biden said his campaign brought in almost $18 million in the last month.
