Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar spoke during a presidential candidate forum sponsored by AARP and the Des Moines Register, Monday, July 15, 2019, in Des Moines.

WASHINGTON – Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar raised nearly $3.9 million for her presidential bid over the past three months, lagging far behind the leaders in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, but tallying enough cash to keep her on the campaign trail.

Klobuchar also announced that her campaign now has more than 100,000 "unique donors," closing in on the 130,000 needed to qualify for the third Democratic debate in September. She has surpassed the 2% polling requirement in three of the four national or early state polls needed to get on the debate stage after this month, but has shown weakness in one recent South Carolina poll.
