Fueled by Teachers and Average Donation of $18, Sanders Raised Record $25.3 Million in Third Quarter

USA presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders was hospitalized on Tuesday with chest pains that required doctors to insert two stents after finding a blockage in one artery, and he will cancel his campaign events until further notice, his campaign said. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., at 7%.

The campaign says two stents were "successfully inserted" and that Sanders "is conversing and in good spirits".

He said that Sanders felt chest discomfort during a campaign event.

Trump's favorability was the worst among registered voters (compared to the top Democratic candidates), with 43% favorable and 56% unfavorable.

Candidates have until October 15 to file their third-quarter fundraising totals with the Federal Election Commission.

Roughly 182,000 new people donated to his campaign, averaging about $32 per person in Quarter 3.

In the end, they surpassed that goal, raking in more than $2.1 million in over that ten day period from more than 46,000 donations.

Independent Vermont Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders raised a gargantuan $25.3 million in the third quarter, despite having slipped into third place in most polls during the period.

Democratic presidential candidates Benrie Sanders, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren take part in the a debate at Texas Southern University, Sept. 12, 2019, in Houston, Texas.

They were the first of the 19 candidates seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election to report their fundraising totals for the quarter, which ended at midnight on Monday. They're also likely to struggle to reach fundraising thresholds set by the Democratic National Committee to qualify for future debates.

In the days leading up to the third-quarter's fundraising deadline, the Sanders campaign made a hard push for an impressive showing, sending emails at least twice a day to supporters asking for as little as $2.70.

"You can do the math: more than a third of what we raised this quarter came in the last ten days, the best fundraising stretch of our campaign", said Addisu Demissie, Booker's campaign manager. For the third debate, which was hosted by ABC News and Univision in September, only 10 candidates qualified, but the DNC had said if more than 10 qualified, the debate would be split over two nights.
