“We’re still crunching all the numbers, but we can already tell you that we hit our fundraising goal for Sunday’s deadline. With zero fundraisers with wealthy donors behind closed doors, zero support from PACs of any kind, and zero contributions from federal lobbyists,” Warren Campaign Manager Roger Lau said in a statement to supporters.

The campaign’s email follows a message to supporters Sunday that it was seeking 35,000 new contributions by midnight, the Federal Election Commission reporting deadline.

“[W]e also know that if we hit our goal of 35,000 new donations by midnight tonight, we’ll have the resources we need to keep powering our movement,” the campaign said in the request. “That’s how we’ll make sure the Democratic primary is squarely focused on rebuilding the middle class, ending corruption in Washington, saving our democracy, and addressing the root causes of the rigged system that led to Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE being in the White House.”

The Warren campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment about how much money it raised and how many people donated.

Though the Massachusetts Democrat has been one of the party’s higher-profile senators since she defeated a Republican incumbent in 2012, Warren has struggled to gain traction in a crowded primary race in which several of the frontrunners are appealing to the party’s progressive wing. 

Warren has sought to differentiate herself from other candidates by putting the nitty-gritty details of her policies at the forefront. While other candidates have also joined her in shunning donations from PACs, she went a step further and cut her campaign off from wealthy individual donors, a move that Axios reported led to the resignation of her campaign’s finance director. 

Her email Tuesday comes the same day as other 2020 Democrats announced impressive fundraising hauls.
