Sanders Campaign Raised $5.2 Million Since New Hampshire Polls Closed

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has raised $5.2 million in campaign contributions since the polls closed in New Hampshire on Tuesday, according to BuzzFeed Politics.

The average contribution was $34, campaign aides told BuzzFeed. They also said BernieSanders.com topped out at “51,000 concurrent visitors at one point.”

The campaign started fundraising off Sanders’ then-projected victory on Tuesday night.

Here’s what his campaign homepage looked like:

The huge haul was motivated by Sanders own call during his televised victory speech.

“I’m going to hold a fundraiser right here, right now, across America,” he said. “My request is please go to Berniesanders.com and contribute.”
