Bernie Sanders´ campaign said Saturday that the Democratic presidential candidate took in more than $33 million in the last three months of 2015. That was enough for Sanders to come within $4 million of the amount raised by Hillary Clinton during this period.
The 74-year-old Vermont senator has now raised $73 million in total. His campaign also said more than one million individual donors made more than 2.5 million contributions, surpassing President Obama´s previous record for individual distributions.
"This people-powered campaign is revolutionizing American politics. What we are showing is that we can run a strong national campaign without a super PAC and without depending on millionaires and billionaires for their support," Sanders´ campaign manager Jeff Weaver said.
