In less than 24 hours, President Trump has raised $24.8 million for his reelection campaign. That number–as Fox News points out–blows past what any Democratic candidate was able to raise in the entire first quarter.

Republican Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted this morning, “@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat.”

The number far surpasses any Democratic presidential candidate’s fundraising efforts within the first 24 hours of announcing their run for office.

In the first 24 hours after announcing, former Vice President Joe Biden raised $6.3 million while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders raised $5.9 million and no other candidate reached $20 million in the first quarter.

Fox News writes, “Sanders brought in $18.2 million in the first 41 days of his campaign; Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., brought in $12 million during the first three months of this year; former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas raised $9.4 million; and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $7.1 million.”

Biden–who announced his candidacy on April 25–“hinted this week at raising roughly $20 million so far, as he tours the fundraising circuit with a series of top-dollar events.”
