Sanders’ campaign, according to aides, still does not spend any money on polling, but has started to invest more heavily in data and list building, especially because most of their fundraising comes online.
Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign raised about million in the third quarter of 2016, his campaign confirmed Thursday. Meanwhile, Clinton’s campaign announced it raised more than million.
The takeaway: Sanders’ numbers for the third quarter are impressive, but Clinton still has one big advantage – her super PAC, which can raise and spend millions of dollars without pesky contribution limits.
Holding only seven campaign events this past quarter, Sanders’ campaign said $25 million of the $40 million raised is still on hand. We do all of our work that way. It specifically mentions the “internet exemption”, which has been previously reported as one loophole in campaign finance law that allows the pro-Clinton group Correct The Record to coordinate with the Clinton campaign. As Sanders has built a national campaign infrastructure, though, his own expenditures have increased to an estimated $15 million this quarter, giving him a net gain of $11 million.
Anyone on a campaign mailing list understands how desperate the candidates are to pad their stats before the end of a fundraising quarter. Sanders only held a handful of fundraisers and supporters could get in with a $50 donation.

In contrast, the race’s second place contender, Bernie Sanders, has a long history of defending gay rights, even declaring a gay pride day during his time as the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, in 1983 – 32 years before SCOTUS would make its federal ruling on gay marriage.
The Syrian civil war, which grew out of an uprising against Assad, has killed more than 250,000 people since March 2011 and sent millions of refugees fleeing to other countries in the Middle East and to Europe.
