O'Rourke's early fundraising had fewer donors than Sanders
CLAREMONT, New Hampshire (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke says his first-day $6.1 million in campaign donations came from 128,000-plus contributions in all 50 states.
Campaigning in New Hampshire on Wednesday, the former Texas congressman said the average contribution was $47.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who raised about $6 million during the first 24 hours of his campaign, had average contributions of about $27 from roughly 225,000 donors.
California Sen. Kamala Harris' campaign has said she raised $1.5 million in the first 24 hours, with average donations of $37 from 38,000-plus contributors.
Other campaigns took in less early money. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar's campaign said it raised $1 million in 48 hours, while Washington Gov. Jay Inslee launched his campaign on a Friday and announced reaching that mark the following Monday.
