Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign raised $15 million in the third quarter this year, he announced Thursday, down from the $21.5 million he raised in the second quarter.

Biden said that 98 percent of the funds came from grassroots donors and that 56 percent of donors were new to the campaign.

The fundraising drop places him behind both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg.

Sanders raised $25 million and Buttigieg raised $19.1 million in the last quarter. Biden did raise more than Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who sits at $11.6 million. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has not released her funding numbers yet.

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $125 million in the third quarter.
