Strong fundraising shows Sen. Warren's continued surge

Continuing to gain in the polls, Senator Elizabeth Warren raised $24.6 for Q3 fundraising, coming in slightly behind Senator Sanders and cruising past former Vice-President Biden in their campaigns for US President.


Sen. Elizabeth Warren finished the third quarter raising $24.6 million, her campaign announced Friday.

The total haul puts her just behind Sen. Bernie Sanders, who brought in over $25 million, and ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden's $15 million.

For Warren, the successful quarter is the latest sign that she is surging, not just in the polls, but in the fundraising game, toward front runner Biden. In some of the recent voter surveys, she's either tied or gone ahead of the former vice president. Biden's fundraising also trailed that of South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who raked in $19.1 million in the quarter.

Senator Warren's campaign also sent dinner to the Sanders organization on the evening their candidate was hospitalized with chest pain and underwent emergency heart surgery.
