WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says he has raised more than $1 million since launching his Democratic presidential campaign Friday.
That’s a notable haul for a governor who starts his campaign less widely known than many of his competitors in a field dominated by senators.
Inslee disclosed his mark Monday on MSNBC. He’d already announced that he has contributions from all 50 states.
Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar raised more than $1 million in her campaign’s first 48 hours. California Sen. Kamala Harris topped $1.5 million in her first 24 hours. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders dwarfed the field with a nearly $6 million haul on his first day.
Inslee is hinging his bid on an ambitious pledge to make combating climate change his top policy priority.
