New Report Shows Bernie Sanders Raised $26.2 Million in Third Quarter

In the quarter ending September 30, Sanders reported raising $26.2 million, not far behind the $29.9 million former secretary of state Hillary Clinton raised. Sanders, who has not yet aired any television advertisements, spent far less than his chief rival for the Democratic nomination: $11.2 million, compared to her $25.7 million.

So even though Clinton vastly out-raised Sanders in the opening months of the presidential race, they now have a similar amount of money in the bank: He's got $27.1 million, while she's got $33 million.

Since Sanders joined the race in May, he has received 1.3 million donations, his campaign said. More than 77 percent of them, or $30.7 million, came from those who gave $200 or less.

"What is really remarkable is the breadth of support for Bernie from so many people responding to his call for a political revolution to stand up for the middle class and take on the billionaire class," Weaver said.
