Beto O'Rourke Already Off To Massive Fundraising Start For 2020 Election Bid

Beto O’Rourke raised more than $6.1 million within 24 hours of announcing his candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, his campaign said on Monday, highlighting his fundraising prowess in a crowded field.

The former three-term Texas congressman’s haul put him at the top of a Democratic pack of more than a dozen candidates so far including Bernie Sanders, the independent U.S. senator who sought the party’s nomination in 2016.

Sanders raised $5.9 million in the first 24 hours of his 2020 campaign.

O’Rourke kicked off his presidential campaign on Thursday with a video on social media and a three-day visit to Iowa, which will hold the first presidential nominating contest in February 2020.

O’Rourke gained national prominence from a 2018 U.S. Senate race that he lost.

His underdog challenge to incumbent Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz attracted capacity crowds and record fundraising.

O’Rourke drew a record $38.1 million in one quarter - out of a total haul of $80 million - more than any other U.S. Senate race and more than three times Cruz’s total.
