Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke just eclipsed Sen. Bernie Sanders’ record one-day post-announcement fundraising haul. Back in February, Sen. Sanders raised $5.9 million in the 24-hour period after he became an official candidate. Late last week, Mr. O’Rourke officially announced his candidacy and brought in $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his new campaign.
It appears evident that the former Congressman will be able to continue the torrid fundraising pace he engendered in his unsuccessful US Senate race where he attracted over $80 million in contributions for his Lone Star State contest.
