Pete Buttigieg, the latest Democrat to launch a full-fledged 2020 presidential campaign, raised $1 million just hours after announcing his official bid, according to his spokeswoman.

The fundraising haul, shared Sunday by Buttigiegs team after his announcement speech, provides the latest data point indicating the South Bend, Indiana, mayors growing profile on the national stage in the few months since entering the contest as a relative unknown.

In the 24 hours after launching an exploratory committee in late January, for instance, Buttigieg raised about $120,000, according to spokeswoman Lis Smith. But after his campaign launch Sunday, Buttigieg collected seven figures in donations in about four hours, the campaign said.

Buttigieg, the youngest of the 18-plus confirmed candidates to join the race against President Donald Trump, had already reported raising over $7 million in the first fundraising quarter during his exploratory campaign phase. That sum put the 37-year-old mayor ahead of a number of more nationally established candidates for the quarter.

Buttigieg has used his campaign funds more sparingly, according to a recent filing from the Federal Election Commission. Of the $7,091,224.39 Buttigieg reported raising, he spent less than $700,000. That leaves him with more than $6.4 million in cash on hand, even before adding in the latest $1 million reported by his campaign on Sunday.

Thats an especially low burn rate, experts and media figures have claimed, and one that his spokeswoman chalks up to the self-described millennial mayors intent to run a 21st century campaign doing more with less.

Buttigieg told CNBC in a February interview that I understand this is an underdog project. Yet the Rhodes Scholar and Afghanistan War veteran, who would be both the youngest and the first openly gay president in U.S. history if elected, has matched his fundraising gains with sizable jumps in polling since launching his exploratory committee.

A Emerson national poll of the 2020 contenders in mid-February, for instance, notched Buttigieg at 0% support, falling well below 12 other Democrats in the primary at the time.

But the latest national poll from Emerson released Monday morning saw Buttigieg rise to the No. 3 slot with 9%, beating 17 other Democrats and falling behind only former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders both of whom have been leading names in American politics for years.


This man is absolutely killing it.

I find it weird this guy is getting so much support. It might be due to him getting on major news networks though, he's like the only fucking dem in the party to realize name recognition is literally the thing that wins elections.

Don't go assuming things. Especially after what happened last time. There's still a tremendous amount of homophobic voters in America so this guy's orientation along with his age is going to make the election a huge uphill battle against the boomers and republicans alike.

That's not winning Bernie any votes.
Also pete is a fan of PC culture from what I've seen in his interviews, so... depends on what your definition of "radical" is.

I feel like hes getting the buzz that Beto was supposed to get, the far left is noticing and pushing off the gas from Beto attacks and moving to Pete attacks.

My congressman is a surrogate for Bernie and hes been sending out anti Pete tweets for the past week. This debate cannot come fast enough

He is getting Millennial support (likely due to his age) and has actually been pulling supporters AWAY from Bernie. I can look for the polling if you want.

I expect Bernie is gonna talk about college more since Pete has made comments against Free College I think that will be a healthy debate and will hopefully force the candidates to discuss the logistics of their free college proposala

It sorta shows many of these candidates are sorta just riding on their names/personality which is how many voters seem to base their vote.

To go from Bernie -> Pete seems like thats what it is anyway

He's not for medicare for all. He has soft support for eventually, one day, getting a public option. Policy wise he's been open lately about not having any yet. He says Dems focus too much on policy and should instead communicate general philosophy like Republicans.

This is a big factor. Hes not only likable but radiates that natural-leader aura and gives off that vibe of an intelligent, calming presence.

Hes got a little of the Obama magic in his presence and speaking.
