Bernie Sanders takes the early fundraising lead for 2020

Presidential contender Bernie Sanders raised $18.2 million in the first three months of the year for his 2020 White House bid, his campaign said on Tuesday, giving him an early fundraising lead in a crowded Democratic primary field.

Other candidates trailed the three Democrats now leading among young voters: Senator Kamala Harris garnered 5 percent of the vote, followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren (4 percent), Senator Cory Booker (3 percent), Andrew Yang (2 percent) and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (1 percent).

Sanders' campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, said the senator's first-quarter fundraising total was made up of roughly 900,000 individual donations from 525,000 people across all USA states and territories.

The fundraising numbers, which cover the period from January 1 to March 31, puts Sanders' total cash on hand at $28 million, including funds from existing campaign accounts.

Sanders is the third candidate in the Democratic primary to release his first-quarter numbers, which must be reported to the Federal Election Commission by April 15.

One in five of those donors gave to Sanders for the first time, campaign manager Faiz Shakir told reporters.

Candidates vying for the Democratic nomination to be U.S. president began on Monday to disclose how much cash they were able to raise in the first quarter of the year - an early test of the energy and enthusiasm of a campaign.
