Pete Buttigieg Announces $7 Million Fundraising Haul for First Quarter

Buttigieg was the first 2020 Democratic candidate to announce his fundraising haul for the first quarter of 2019

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and a fast-rising 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, announced Monday that he raised more than $7 million since launching his presidential exploratory committee in January, NBC News reports.

"This is just a preliminary analysis, but our team’s initial report shows we raised over $7 million dollars in Q1 of this year," Buttigieg tweeted. "We (you) are out-performing expectations at every turn. I'll have a more complete analysis later, but until then: a big thank you to all our supporters."
