SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The 2020 election year is officially here, and President Donald Trump's fundraising efforts are far surpassing all his potential Democratic rivals. 

The president's campaign announced it raised $46 million in the last three months of 2019. In all, his campaign has nearly $103 million in cash on hand. 

The only candidate to come close to President Trump's fourth-quarter total is Bernie Sanders. The senator's campaign announced Thursday it raised more than $34.5 million during that time. Sanders prides himself on being funded by everyday people and said the average donation was $18.53. 

Pete Buttigieg was first to release his fundraising numbers, and his campaign brought in more than $24.7 million in Q4. Joe Biden's totals came in just shy of Buttigieg at $22.7 million. Sen. Elizabeth Warren came in just behind the former vice president, bringing in $21.2 million in donations. Andrew Yang raised more than $16.5 million, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar raised $11.4 million. 

Candidates are required to file quarterly fundraising reports with the Federal Election Commission. The last three months of 2019 were the strongest fundraising quarter of the year for a few of the Democratic candidates, including Biden, Klobuchar, Sanders and Yang.
