Bernie Sanders Raised a Ton of Money Last Night

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has raised $5.2 million since his (sort-of) victory last night in the New Hampshire primary. The average donation size was $34.

At his victory speech, Sanders encouraged his supporters to send in small donations. Apparently, they listened.

Sanders crushed rival Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday. During his victory speech, he urged people to donate to his campaign.

“I'm going to hold a fundraiser right here, right now, across America,” Sanders told the crowd at his victory speech in Concord, N.H.

“My request is please go to BernieSanders.com and contribute. Please help us raise the funds we need, whether it's $10 bucks, $20 bucks, or $50 bucks. Help up us raise the money we need to take the fight to Nevada, South Carolina, and the states on Super Tuesday.”

Sanders outraised Hillary Clinton by $5 million in January.

Looks like quite a few people are feelin' the Bern.
