Beto O’Rourke Raises More than $6 Million Online in First 24 Hours

WASHINGTON (AP) – Beto O’Rourke’s Democratic presidential campaign says he raised more than $6 million online during the first 24 hours after he announced
his White House bid last week.

O’Rourke spokesman Chris Evans tweeted Monday the “record-breaking” $6.1 million came “without a dime” from political action committees, corporations or
special interests.

The $6.1 million is the highest 24-hour number reported by any campaign, just above what Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders reported.

O’Rourke jumped into the 2020 presidential race on Thursday, shaking up the already packed field and pledging to win over voters from across the political spectrum. The former Texas congressman lost a U.S. Senate race to incumbent Ted Cruz last November.
