Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) finished her fourth quarter fundraising campaign at $21.2 million despite announcing days before that she was 30 percent behind the pace of the previous quarter.
The campaign was able to pass its goal of $20 million on the final day of the year, according to Warren's campaign manager Roger Lau.
"We beat our goal and raised more than $21.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. And we saw a strong surge of support at the end — over $1.5 million came in on the last day of the year alone, our best fundraising day to date," Lau said.
However, Warren's fourth-quarter total is $3 million less than the $24.6 million she raised in the third quarter, putting her behind Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders ($34.5M), former Mayor Pete Buttigieg ($25M), and former Vice President Joe Biden ($22.7M).
President Trump's campaign announced on Thursday that it had raised $46 million during the fourth quarter.
