Bernie Sanders Raises $15m So Far in Campaign for Democratic Nomination

Bernie Sanders has raised $15m for his presidential bid since joining the race as a longshot challenger to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, his campaign has announced.
About 250,000 donors have given money, giving the senator a solid foundation from which to build an insurgent campaign against Clinton and establishment Democrats.
Sanders has drawn large crowds, including about 10,000 in Madison, Wisconsin, on Wednesday night, and the money raised will bolster his attempt to become a liberal alternative to Clinton. Clinton’s campaign has amassed $45m since mid-April.
