Sanders to Appear on Fox News for Town Hall on Jobs

The town hall on jobs and the ecomony will be April 15 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and be moderated by "Special Report" anchor Bret Baier and "The Story" anchor Martha MacCallum. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, and former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper all broke the $1 million mark after 48 hours.

But campaign officials said that this financial target had always been ambitious, and was meant to galvanize Sanders' grassroots base.

Sanders' first quarter haul exceeded that of California Sen. That followed Sanders, who raised $5.9m in his first day - and later disclosed he had raised $10m in a week.

Obama's massive $25.7 million haul was a reported as a massive victory for the IL senator and a major blow to Clinton, who had hoped to crush her competition in total fundraising.

One in five of those donors gave to Sanders for the first time, campaign manager Faiz Shakir told reporters. Before the midterm elections, for example, as NPR's Peter Overby reported, the Trump campaign held 18 rallies in 20 days campaigning for Republican Senate candidates. Of 525,000 individual contributors, roughly 20 percent, or a little over 100,000, are new donors.

This is Sanders' first campaign-related visit to the keystone state. Sanders has taken the unique step of setting up the ability for donors to make automatic payments to the campaign. The $7 million number is a big one for any presidential candidate to raise in one quarter, especially for a previously unknown mayor of a relatively small city who is still operating in the exploratory committee phase. His team said 98 percent of donations were under $200, and almost all donations raised were made online.

The campaign said that "a majority" of O'Rourke's presidential donors had not contributed to his campaign previous year for a Senate seat from Texas in which he came up short against Sen. "And it's definitely ahead of what people thought we would be able to do, especially when you consider when we launched this exploratory committee, most people had never heard of me". Candidates can qualify by raising money from a minimum of 65,000 individual donors or by receiving at least 1% of support in three primary polls - as of now Sanders and Harris have both qualified.
