The total, which was the first second-quarter fundraising result released by a 2020 Democrat, is staggering for a candidate who was barely known at the beginning of the cycle.

Sen. Bernie Sanders — with a prebuilt list of donors from his 2016 presidential run — topped the field of 24 Democrats with $18.2 million in donations during the first quarter.

To highlight how times have changed, at this point during the 2008 cycle, Barack Obama pulled in $32.5 million — then a staggering number — against Hillary Clinton’s $27 million in a head-to head race, per CNN.
