Beto O’Rourke’s campaign is reporting that the former congressman raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours after announcing his bid, surpassing the haul brought in by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the same window, who previously held the financial record.

Per CNN, the campaign said that the contributions came from every state and territory.
