Warren, Klobuchar end 2019 lagging top rivals in fundraising

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has announced raising $21.2 million for her presidential campaign in the final three months of last year. The total trails the amounts collected by the Democratic presidential primary’s three other front-runners: former Vice President Joe Biden with $22.7 million, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with $34.5 million and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg with $24.7 million. Warren’s fourth-quarter total also trails the amount she raised in the previous quarter. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said Friday she took in $11.4 million for her White House bid to close out the year, the best fundraising quarter of her 2020 campaign.
