Cory Booker Raised More Than $5 Million in First Quarter

Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) campaign said on Sunday afternoon that he had raised more than $5 million since announcing his 2020 presidential bid on Feb. 1. Additionally, it will report having more than $6.1 million cash on hand. While the campaign did not provide details on the number of contributors or contributions, it said that its average online donation was $34 and that 82 percent of those who contributed had never given to a one of the New Jersey Democrat’s prior campaigns. His fundraising haul puts him behind prior announced totals from South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX). Other candidates have yet to reveal what their totals look like in advance of the April 15 deadline for full fundraising reports.
