Campaign officials estimated in February that Sen. Amy Klobuchar would need about $25 million to get through Iowa's Feb. 3 caucuses and into New Hampshire's Feb. 11 primary election.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., raised $5.2 million in the first seven weeks of her presidential candidacy, a total that passed an important test of campaign viability among political veterans as the 2020 Democratic field expands.

Fundraising success is an early measure of presidential candidates' prospects, and the number of individual donors is a mark of grassroots support. "It's a good effort and something that she should be proud of, and it makes her viable - very viable," said Mitchell Berger, a longtime Democratic fundraiser in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "She has the resources and the ability to take it to the next step."
