See the 2020 candidates hauling in the most cash from Maine donors

Written on November 3, 2019

Vermont Democrat Sen. Bernie Sanders has so far pulled in the most money from individual contributors in Maine, where in 2016 he won the party caucus.

FEC data shows Sanders pulled in more than $131,000 from 504 contributors who have given his campaign more than $200 so far (campaigns do not have to disclose the addresses of donors giving smaller amounts).

Sanders is the only Democrat who has raised more in Maine than Republican incumbent Donald Trump.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttegieg raised the next highest amounts in Maine.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who dropped out of the Democratic primary in August, raised more than former Vice President Joe Biden, through the end of September.

Trump had a significant head start, with individual donations from Maine starting to flow steadily in late 2018.

Sanders’ donations picked up strongly in late February of this year, while Warren, Buttegieg and Biden began raising more significant amounts from Maine donors starting in April.
