Kamala Harris Raised the Least of Any Top-Tier 2020 Dem in Q2

With Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) announcement Monday that she raised $19 million in the second quarter of 2019, all of the top-tier candidates have disclosed their fundraising totals for Q2.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) raised the most of anyone, raking in an impressive $24.8 million in April, May, and June. Former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) came in second, raising $21.5 million in Q2, followed by Warren at $19.1 million. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was not far behind Warren with $18 million.

And trailing that pack of top-tier candidates by about $6 million is Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who raised just short of $12 million.

The California Democrat raised nearly $12 million from more than 279,000 donors in the second quarter, according to her campaign. Over the course of the campaign, she has raised more than $23 million.

The San Francisco Chronicle noted that Harris’s total “lags behind” the other top-tier candidates, a troubling sign for her campaign.

Harris made waves during the first Democrat presidential primary debate last month in Miami. By attacking Biden on the issue of race, Harris put herself in the spotlight in the primary. Her campaign claimed it raised $2 million in the 24 hours after that debate.

So, if Harris hadn’t had a good debate, her fundraising total would have been even worse than the already poor figure she posted.

It will be another three months until these candidates have to share their next round of fundraising totals, but suffice it to say, Harris will need to make a vast improvement to keep up with the competition.

Here’s a rundown of the top fundraisers for Q2 of 2019:

1. Pete Buttigieg: $24.8 million

2. Joe Biden: $21.5 million

3. Elizabeth Warren: $19 million

4. Bernie Sanders: $18 million

5. Kamala Harris: $12 million
