O'Rourke's campaign has averaged $522,000 a day, Sanders' has averaged $444,000 a day, Harris averaged $171,000 a day, and Buttigieg averaged $103,000 a day.
Sanders touts that he's held zero traditional fundraisers and has an average donation of US$20 - less than 1 per cent of the US$2800 maximum.
"I think they're playing for the long haul here", Shakir said of those donors.
"While we had to in 2016 make choices about where we could compete...this campaign will have the resources and the volunteer grassroots strength to compete in every state in the primary process", said Weaver.

The 2020 presidential primary is shaping up to be fiercely competitive, with other candidates showing impressive fundraising ability despite not yet revealing their total for the quarter.
The figure, released by Sanders' campaign manager Faiz Shakir on Tuesday, is likely to put Sanders in front of the Democrats who seek to unseat incumbent President Donald Trump. The senator's campaign noted that of his 525,000 unique donors, about 20 per cent are new, about 100,000 are registered independents and about 20,000 are registered Republicans.
He has sworn off donations from lobbyists and political action committees. Donations collected between January 1 and March 31 must be disclosed by April 15.

Beto O'Rourke, the former congressman from Texas, said Wednesday that his campaign raised $9.4 million during the first quarter of the year, a haul that places him third among Democratic presidential hopefuls who have announced totals.

Twenty percent of those donors had not previously given money to Sanders.
While this is the first time O'Rourke has taken a position on Lee's legislation, he never explicitly committed to supporting direct monetary payments.
