Warren says race is still ‘wide open,’ has raised $6M since Iowa

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) reported Thursday that she has raised about $6 million dollars since the Iowa caucuses, remarking that the Democratic primary race is far from over.

“Right now, it’s wide open,” she told The Associated Press Thursday. “There’s a lot of froth. It’s going to be a long process.”

The number falls well short of progressive rival Sen. Bernie Sanders‘s (I-Vt.) $25 million haul in January, but is comparable to some of the other candidates’ fundraising efforts.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said that she has raised more than $6 million since last Friday’s debate in New Hampshire, while former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg reported raising $4 million in the four days following the Iowa caucuses.

In Iowa, Warren finished third behind Sanders and Buttigieg, and in New Hampshire she finished fourth, trailing Sanders, Buttigieg and Klobuchar.

According to her campaign, Warren still has staffers in roughly 30 states, suggesting that the Massachusetts senator has no intention of leaving the race soon.

Nevada and South Carolina are the remaining “early state” contests remaining until Super Tuesday on March 3. Nevada is up next, with the next debate being held next week in Las Vegas.
