Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Pete Buttigieg reports $19 million fundraising haul in third quarter”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

WASHINGTON – Pete Buttigieg said Tuesday that he raised more than $19.1 million during the last three months, a decline from the whopping $24.8 million his presidential campaign collected during the second quarter but still a healthy haul.

The fundraising will add to his staying power as the previously little-known mayor of South Bend, Ind., tries to break into the top tier of Democratic contenders in the polls.

After raising the most money in the Democratic field in the second quarter, Buttigieg ranked behind only Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in total fundraising. But he lags behind both senators and behind former Vice President Joe Biden in public polling.

"We will have the resources to go the full distance, and to win, the 2020 nominating contests," campaign manager Mike Schmuhl said in the announcement.

The top candidates haven't announced their fundraising totals for a quarter that typically can be less lucrative than other times of the year. Figures don't have to be publicly disclosed until filed with the Federal Election Commission by Oct. 15.
