WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidates raised about $75 million during the first quarter of the 2020 election, a lackluster sum spread out across more than a dozen campaigns that signals a drawn-out battle likely lies ahead.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led the field by raising $18 million and California Sen. Kamala Harris came in second with $12 million. Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke came in third with $9.3 million, followed by South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who capitalized on a flurry of publicity to raise $7 million.

The rest of the field of more than a dozen candidates raised $6 million or less apiece.

Fundraising figures submitted to the Federal Election Commission by Monday’s reporting deadline show Democratic candidates not only lag behind President Donald Trump, who raised $30 million, but took in less than the party did during the same period in the 2008 election. That year eight candidates collectively raised over $80 million despite a maximum donation amount that was hundreds of dollars less than the current $2,800 cap.

1. AP has trouble comparing apples with oranges and doing the math.

 

Your last quoted paragraph must be a joke.

1. Somehow Trump's 30 million is less than 75 million. Of course the Democrats' donations are going to be spread across all 20 candidates vs. the single asshole on the Republican side.

2. Comparing 2019 (the year before the election) with an election year, 2008, makes sense only to the likes of Hannity, Goebbels and Goring.

Truth is Democrats are wiping Trump's ass with 20 grit sandpaper.

2. Selling a brokered convention

 

is good for clicks and ratings.

(It could happen; I'm not a believer it will just yet.)
