Bernie Sanders Receives One Millionth Individual Donation

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders has received one million individual donations but still took in only one-third of his rival Hillary Clinton’s haul this fundraising quarter.

Bernie Sander’s average donation last week was $24.86, according to New York Magazine. Thus, despite the fact that Sanders has more donors than any other presidential candidate, he still raised only $15 million in the third quarter of 2015 against Clinton’s $45 million take.

Nevertheless, Clinton might be getting nervous.

As Sanders spent the end of the fundraising quarter trying to reach one million donations, Clinton did him one better, throwing a lavish $2,700-a-head party at Jay-Z’s New York City nightclub The 40/40 Club.

Occupy Wall Street activist Marni Halasa organized a protest outside Clinton’s fundraiser to highlight Clinton’s perceived money-loving ways.
