Bernie Sanders breaks fundraising record

Bernie_Poster_Large_Web_Graphic_72dpiBernie Sanders has broken the fundraising record for most contributions at this point in a presidential campaign, surpassing 2.3 million donations.

According to a Dec. 20 post on Sanders’ campaign website, the previous record-holder was Barack Obama, who had logged 2,209,636 donations by Dec. 31, 2011 during his reelection bid.

Many of these contributions are from small donors: according to the Sanders website, the average donation that came in during the third Democratic debate on Saturday was less than $25.

Sanders raised more than $26 million in the third quarter of 2015, according to the New York Times.
