Bernie Sanders says his campaign has raised $18.2 million in the 41 days since he launched his Democratic presidential bid. California Sen. Kamala Harris and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg have also reported impressive totals for the first quarter of the year, which ended on Sunday.

According to campaign manager Faiz Shakir, this $18.2 million was raised with nearly 900,000 individual donations, from 525,000 contributors.

Harris' campaign release their first quarter fundraising totals Monday evening, reporting that the campaign raised $12 million from more than 218,000 individual contributions since she officially launched her bid on January 21, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Sanders' announcement comes the day after California Sen.

One in five of those donors gave to Sanders for the first time, campaign manager Faiz Shakir told reporters. "Elizabeth Warren of MA, one of the biggest names running, who raised a relatively modest sum of $300,000 on her first partial day in the race", the outlet reported.

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke of Texas likely poses the most serious fundraising challenge to Sanders.

Sanders is the third candidate in the Democratic primary to release his first-quarter numbers, which must be reported to the Federal Election Commission by April 15.

The profession with the most donors to Sanders' campaign was teachers, according to Shakir. (The Trump campaign had raised about $28 million from individual contributions.) Two additional political action committees that function as joint fundraising committees with the Republican National Committee, Trump Victory and Trump Make America Great Again Committee, had raised an additional $100 million.

Sanders' average donation is around $20, as opposed to the $27 he touted when running for the nomination against Hillary Clinton in 2016. The average age for Sanders's donors was 39-years-old, the campaign said, and almost all donations raised were made online.

Sanders fueled his unsuccessful 2016 campaign with grassroots giving. Roughly 525,000 individual donors have contributed to the campaign.

"Proving that young voters see more than age, it's notable that the candidates with the most experience in government service are leading a diverse field at this early stage in the process", said John Della Volpe, Director of Polling for the Institute of Politics. "And it's definitely ahead of what people thought we would be able to do, especially when you consider when we launched this exploratory committee, most people had never heard of me".
