Biden outpaces pack, raises $6.3 mn in first 24 hours

Biden outpaces pack, raises $6.3 mn in first 24 hoursJoe Biden raked in $6.3 million in the 24 hours since launching his presidential bid, his campaign said Friday, outpacing Day 1 fundraising of all other Democrats in the crowded 2020 field. Online donations to the former vice president, already considered the frontrunner among the Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald Trump, averaged $41, and 61 percent of total money raised came from new donors who were not on earlier Biden email lists. The dollar figure eclipsed the $6.1 million opening-day haul by rival Democrat Beto O’Rourke, a former congressman from Texas, and the $5.9 million raised in 24 hours by liberal Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who is second behind Biden in the polls.
