Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of the top candidates for president for the Democratic Party, has become the top fundraiser for the 2020 election – and she is clearly gaining momentum. She will not stop rejecting PAC money or avoiding closed-door, high dollar fundraisers beyond the Democratic primary and into the general election if she is in fact selected as the frontrunner to lead the party. “I gonna keep doing what I am doing, and that is funding my campaign in the primary and the general election through small dollar contributions,” she told reporters in South Carolina on the campaign trail on Wednesday. To date the Senator from Massachusetts has raised enough to fill her war chest to the total sum of $50 million by working with small dollar donors and rejecting the large corporate donors that so many candidates of both parties have counted on in the past.
However some specialists from the fundraising world are now saying that Warren is making a mistake as building a much bigger war chest would help the Democrats in the next elections to win the Senate and hold on to the House as well as a refocus on State Governors across the Midwest. Her decision comes as the Democratic National Committee struggles to pay off $7.5 million in debt, while the Republicans have raised $125 million in the past three months. The US election is eventually going see billions of dollars spent by August 2020.
