Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) presidential campaign raised $3 million in the first quarter of 2019, her spokesman announced Sunday, putting her behind other senators who are also running for the White House in 2020.

Gillibrand’s campaign ended the quarter with $10.2 million in cash on hand, the spokesperson, Meredith Kelly, said in a tweet.

Gillibrand’s first-quarter fundraising fell well short of fellow Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who have also announced 2020 presidential bids. Sanders raised more than $18 million, Harris raised more than $12 million and Warren raised $6 million in the first three months of the year.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who are also running for the White House, each raised more than $5 million during the period. Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) had a haul of $9.4 million and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is expected to announce his presidential candidacy on Sunday, raised more than $7 million in the first quarter.
