Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) announced the surge in donations in an interview Sunday. The funds came pouring in after her third place finish in last week’s Democrat primary in New Hampshire.
Although, she is still trailing behind her 2020 rivals financially.
Klobuchar said she’s finally gotten the resources she needs to open offices in Super Tuesday states, while Michael Bloomberg has been able to saturate the air-waves with an unprecedented numbers of ads.

The Minnesota senator stated she is very confident she can beat Michael Bloomberg.
“I think he has to come on the shows and I personally think he should be on the debate stage,” stated the senator. “I’m never going to beat him on the air-wave, but I can beat him on the debate stage.”
Her comments come as she heads into the Nevada primaries. She is polling in fifth place behind Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Tom Steyer.
