Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders beat his previous best donation haul by raising $44 million in the month of March.
As New York Times reported,
“The strong fund-raising numbers followed a string of victories in Democratic voting contests last week in Idaho, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii. They also hint at the seemingly limitless well of small dollars that Mr. Sanders has been able to tap, even as his chances of winning enough delegates to take the Democratic nomination appear to be waning. Should the Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton, post a lower number, it would be the third consecutive month that Mr. Sanders raised more money than the former secretary of state”.
This is a pretty good amount considering the fact that it’s clean money donated by people and not given by corporates.
Mr. Sanders said, Working people standing together are going to propel this campaign to the Democratic nomination and then the White House.”
