TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Sen. Kamala Harris has fundraised about $12 million in the second quarter of 2019.
Where Is The Money Coming From?
Sen. Harris said that her campaign wouldn’t take corporate PAC money. In the second quarter, 279,000 people donated to her presidential campaign. About $7 million came from her online platforms. The average online contribution was $39.
Her most successful products are her t-shirts. Harris’ campaign sold t-shirts that has a picture of a young Kamala Harris. This picture came out after Harris dug into Joe Biden about busing during the Democratic debate. The shirt was her best-selling product in June, even though it came out at the end of the month.
Despite her good fundraising, Sen. Harris is falling behind compared to other candidates. Mayor Pete Buttigieg rose $24 million in the second quarter alone. Joe Biden rose $21.5 million in the second quarter and Sen. Bernie Sanders rose $18 million.
