"The presidential campaign of California. Senator Kamala Harris has just in the last hour announced that she has raised a total of twelve million dollars in the first quarter of this year for her presidential campaign to put it in perspective. That is what we technically call a lot. Also, the Harris campaign says ninety eight percent of its contributions were under one hundred dollars. That's important because it means that the Harris campaign can co back to those donors again and again without them hitting their donors donation maximum. The reason we're getting this declaration from Senator Harris is because we just hit the end of the first quarter of the calendar year. And that means all of the campaigns all of the presidential candidates have to report, their fundraising total. So we'll get. We'll start to get those those totals in there do every quarter. We also got numbers today from the mayor of south bend, Indiana who star is rising as fast as his name recognition in the democratic field. Thus far Pete Buddha. Judge has raised over seven million dollars in the first quarter. Again, that's versus twelve million dollars for Senator Kamla Harris. I should also tell you that people to judge will be on live with Lawrence O'Donnell in the next hour. You'll definitely want to stick around and see that interview every declared candidate though is going to have to release these numbers and pretty soon and numbers on anything money isn't everything, but these fundraising totals from this first quarter will tell us a little bit about how much cash these candidates are going to have to run their campaigns. It's also going to matter in the very practical sense. That fundraising is part of how people are going to make the cut or not to get into the first democratic debates. So these fundraising numbers are important in terms of understanding how well these candidates are doing in the money part of the race. But also whether they're going. To be on stage. When it comes time for the first debate in June. Now, the first quarter is done. We will get a fundraising totals from all the other candidates today following Harrison Buddha, judge they're going to start to trickle in."
