Sen. Gillibrand raises $3M in first quarter for 2020 race

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand (KEER’-sten JIHL’-uh-brand) says her campaign has raised more than $3 million in the first three months of the year.

Gillibrand’s communication director Meredith Kelly says that 92% of donations were under $200 and the average online donation was $25. Nearly two-thirds of contributors are women.

Advocacy for women and victims of assault and harassment have been early themes of Gillibrand’s campaign.

Kelly says the campaign now has about $10.2 million cash in hand.

The New York senator’s fundraising tally trailed other Democratic contenders who have voluntarily disclosed their totals. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has raised more than $18 million; Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has raised $6 million.
