By BRIAN SLODYSKO
WASHINGTON (AP) - From Ben Affleck and Susan Sarandon to Anna Wintour and Willie Nelson, celebrities lined up to give money to their favorite Democratic presidential candidates.
Fundraising reports made public this week show 2020 contenders including Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, California Sen. Kamala Harris, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tuh-juhj) and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke raised money from stars.
Candidates in the crowded field of more than a dozen contenders have aggressively courted key figures in music, television, publishing and film. They are among the party's most reliable sources of campaign cash.
Although many donors remain on the sidelines, the reports offer a glimpse of who is drawing attention from the entertainment industry in the early stages of the race.
