Trump and Sanders Campaigns Lead 2020 Fund-Raising Race

WASHINGTON — The two presidential candidates who entered 2019 with the largest bases of supporters — President Trump and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont — led the 2020 field in fund-raising in the first quarter of the year.Presidential candidates were under a Monday night deadline to file their fund-raising numbers for the first three months of 2019.
The Trump campaign reported bringing in about $30 million in the quarter, while Mr. Sanders’s campaign raised about $18 million in the quarter.Other Democrats reporting large hauls to the Federal Election Commission included Senator Kamala Harris of California, whose campaign raised about $12 million, and former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas, whose campaign raised more than $9 million.

John Hickenlooper of Colorado raised $2 million. Only 10 percent of Mr. Hickenlooper’s total came from donors giving $200 or less.
Both candidates entered the race in early March.Julián Castro, the former housing secretary, raised about $1.1 million.Another Democrat who is trying to gain more attention, former Representative John Delaney of Maryland, has plenty of money — but as a result of his own wealth, not an outpouring of donations.
. Mr. Delaney provided $11.7 million in loans to his campaign during the first three months of the year, and his campaign ended the quarter with $10.6 million in cash on hand...
