The presidential campaign for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., took in $10 million in less than week from several hundred thousand donors.
According to The New York Times, Sanders' campaign — which officially began last Tuesday — earned $10 million in donations as of Monday.
The Times cited people who were at Sanders' campaign headquarters when the campaign kicked off as saying that within minutes of the 7 a.m. ET announcement, donations from all across the country were pouring in. By Monday, 359,914 people had given money to his White House effort.
Sanders raised roughly $230 million for his 2016 presidential campaign, which fell short of winning the Democratic primary to Hillary Clinton.
