Montana Gov. (D) raised $2 million for his 2020 White House in the second quarter of 2019, his campaign said Friday. 

The Democrat entered the crowded race in May and only had about a month and a half to raise the money.

“Since announcing his campaign in mid-May, Governor Bullock received grassroots support from all 50 states and raised over $2 million, without the transfer of other funds,” said campaign manager Jenn Ridder in a statement.

“It’s clear Governor Bullock’s message of winning back places Democrats lost in 2016 and ending dark money’s corrupting influence will resonate in early states like Iowa and New Hampshire, and he will continue working to earn every vote,” she added. 

Bullock’s total is comparable to that of some other candidates, such as Sen. , who also joined the race in May and raised $2.8 million, according to CNN

The totals trail those of frontrunners, like former Vice President , who raised $21.5 million in the second quarter, according to his campaign. 

Bullock fell short of making the first 20-person Democratic primary debate last week.

He is among more than two dozen candidates vying for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination.
