Donald Trump had an impressive fundraising year in 2019.
He and his supporters raised about $46 million in the final fundraising quarter and about, depending on the source, somewhere between $400 million and half a billion dollars overall for his reelection.
Unfortunately for him, the Democratic Presidential Candidates had a better 2019.
Looking at the candidates that have reported their fourth-quarter contributions, Democrats raised over $120 million dollars. These include:
Bernie Sanders: $34.5 million
Pete Buttigieg: $24.7 million
Joe Biden: $22.7 million
Elizabeth Warren: $21.2 million
Andrew Yang: $16.5 million
Amy Klobuchar: $11.4 million
Tulsi Gabbard: $3.6 million
These figures have yet to account for the contributions from the Bennet, Bloomberg, Booker, Delaney, Steyer, and the candidates that dropped out like Julian Castro and Marianne Williamson.
Overall, Democrats and their supporters raised, according to Politico, $463 million dollars in 2019.
Money is apparently not going to be a problem for the Democrats in 2020.
Enthusiasm for defeating the 2016 Popular Vote Loser also known as the KKK Endorsed Candidate, Individual One, and the third President impeached in United States History is at a fever pitch.
For Democrats to be successful in 2020 up and down the ballot, it is essential that enthusiasm, as well as high fundraising, remains high no matter who the nominee is.
Unity and enthusiasm for Democrats are the keys to changing the direction of the country in November.
