The media is pretty psyched about Bernie Sanders’ “massive” 4th quarter fundraising numbers:
NEWS: Bernie Sanders raised more than $34.5 million in the final three months of 2019, according to the campaign — a massive sum. It’s the strongest quarter any Democratic presidential candidate announced thus far for the year. https://t.co/rvdvr6zhdR

It’s a “major haul,” you know:
NEW: @BernieSanders with a major Q4 haul:
$34.5 million raised ($9.2m increase from Q3)
1.8 million donations this Q
900k donations in December; strongest month of the quarter totaling over +$18 million.
+5 mill contributions since February announcehttps://t.co/1S7JmgACzZ

This is “the largest single-quarter haul bay any candidate so far in the Democratic party race”:
Senator Bernie Sanders raised $34.5 million last quarter, his campaign said, the largest single-quarter haul by any candidate so far in the Democratic primary race https://t.co/LItuORK88m

And then the Trump campaign released its 4th quarter fundraising numbers, which blew away Bernie’s:
President Trump’s campaign raised $46 million in the final quarter of 2019, per Brad Parscale.

And Trump has over $100 million of cash on hand:

An “unstoppable juggernaut,” indeed:
JUST IN: Trump campaign says it raised $46 Million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and has a “whopping” $102.7 million cash on hand. “The President’s war chest and grassroots army make his re-election campaign an unstoppable juggernaut,” Trump campaign manager @parscale says.

And this doesn’t even include RNC $$$:
$46 million in Q4.
This is a big, unprecedented number, at this point, raised by @realDonaldTrump’s campaign.
And it does not include money raised by RNC or the joint committees between the campaign and RNC.
That combined total will be awe-inspiring.https://t.co/1rev6FiTcb
