Andrew Yang Nearly Quadruples His Last Quarter Fundraising With $10 Million Haul

Andrew Yang raised $10 million in the last quarter, nearly four times as much as the $2.8 million he raised in the second quarter of this year.

Yang is now outraising candidates like Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker despite never holding elected office.

Yang finished September with $6 million in the bank, his campaign told Politico.

Yang is the sixth candidate to raise at least $10 million in a single quarter, joining former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, California Sen. Kamala Harris, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Yang said he has received donations from nearly 300,000 supporters since the beginning of his campaign.

He raised $1 million in the 72 hours following the last debate, at which he announced he would be giving his “Freedom Dividend,” a proposed $1,000-per-month universal basic income, to 10 families.

"Andrew Yang is the only contender showing exponential growth in the third quarter, more than tripling his fundraising number from last quarter," campaign manager Zach Graumann said in a statement. "This grassroots fundraising total, with $6 million-plus in the bank, ensures this campaign will have the funding to compete and outperform expectations through Super Tuesday and beyond."

Bernie hauls in $25M:

Biden and Warren have yet to release their third-quarter fundraising numbers but Sanders reported an eye-popping $25.3 million haul last quarter, bringing his 2020 campaign total to $61.5 million.

Biden reported raising $21.4 million last quarter while Warren reported a highly impressive $35.5 million.

Buttigieg reported raising $19.1 million last quarter and has raised $51 million since entering the race.

Harris raised $11.6 million, roughly the same number as she raised last quarter.

Booker raised $6 million last quarter and has raised $19 million total. Bennet reported raising just over $2 million. Other candidates have not yet released their totals.

Trump and RNC raise $125M:

President Trump and the Republican National Committee raised a record $125 million last quarter, according to the Associated Press.

The Trump-RNC joint effort has raised more than $308 million this year and has $156 million in the bank. By comparison, former President Obama and the DNC raised just over $70 million in the third quarter of 2011, though under different fundraising rules.

Trump’s team aims to raise $1 billion for his re-election bid.
