Former vice president Joe Biden raised $6.3 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) raised a similar $5.9 million. Elizabeth Warren raised $300,000 within 24 hours of announcing her exploratory campaign but did not provide a number for her official announcement. Pete Buttigieg raised $1 million within four hours of announcing his campaign but did not provide a number for 24 hours. Kamala Harris raised $1.5 million. Beto O’Rourke raised $6.1 million but is not polling in the top five for the Democratic nomination. 

Trump kicked off his campaign with a rally in Orlando Tuesday night. According to the New York Post, his campaign set a fundraising goal of $7 million to reach by 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
