Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign says that it has received contributions from 4 million donors.
In Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, he didn’t reach that number of contributors until after winning the New Hampshire primary. That’s when the Vermont senator was rising from virtual unknown nationally to credible challenger of Hillary Clinton, the eventual Democratic nominee.
Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir says, “This is what momentum looks like.”
Last week, the Sanders campaign said it had made more than 7.75 million calls and sent more than 63 million text messages, mostly to voters in early states.
Sanders began running for president in February.
The campaign’s announcement came on the eve of the latest Democratic primary presidential debate in Atlanta.
