A virtual tie with Hillary Clinton at the Iowa caucuses (she won a few coin flips) helped Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders secure a quick $3 million in additional funds.
An aide for Sanders’ campaign said Tuesday that they raised $3 million in the 24 hours following the closely watched caucus results.
“It’s been our best day ever,” Sanders communications director Michael Briggs said of the fundraising haul.
Following his heralded speech after the nights events his campaign says four in 10 donors were giving to his campaign for the first time.
Two days ago, the Sanders campaign announced it raised a surprising $20 million in January.
