Kamala Harris has managed to raise $12 million the past three months according to a statement released by her campaign last Friday, according to FoxNews
But what Kamala Harris brought in during the first quarter of the year is nothing comparing to what was raised in the second quarter by three of her rivals for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former Vice President Joe Biden, and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
The Kamala Harris campaign stated that their April-June haul came from more than 279,000 contributors, and that 150,000 of those donors were new to the campaign. More than $7 million was raised online and that the average contribution during the second quarter was $39, with an average of $24 for online donations, the campaign reported.
Around $2 million of the amount the senator raised just came right after her last week debate against Biden. During The debate, the senator criticized Biden’s stance against federally mandated busing to desegregate schools.
She also shared a personal emotional story when she was a kid and she was bused to school as a little girl. Her campaign tweeted her photo as a child and managed to sell 1440 shirts with that photo on them alongside the phrase “That little girl was me” and she got herself half a million dollars online.
Kamala Harris is now in second place in some surveys after Biden after the big boost she got as a result of the last debate.
Juan Rodriguez, Kamala Harris’s campaign manager said that “as it has been from the beginning, this campaign is powered by the people. These resources will help expand Kamala’s growing strength in this primary and put her position to win the Democratic nomination.”, Pointing fingers towards the fundraising report.
We are waiting now to see how it will go for Kamala Harris and her campaign.
