Democrat Amy Klobuchar says she raised nearly $4 million in the second quarter for her 2020 presidential bid, less than the $5.2 million she brought in during the first seven weeks after joining the race.

The Minnesota senator announced the fundraising total for April through June on Monday when all campaigns must report them.

Klobuchar raised a fraction of what her top rivals raised during the same period. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg announced he received nearly $24.8 million, while former Vice President Joe Biden said he raised $21.5 million.

Klobuchar regularly tells voters that she doesn't come from money but that she has "grit" and knows how to defeat President Donald Trump. The three-term senator notes she has won in parts of Minnesota that backed Trump in 2016.
