Klobuchar’s Dark-Horse Campaign Gets Funding Boost

Democratic presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar raised $2.5 million in four hours after her third-place finish in the New Hampshire primary, her campaign said on Wednesday, a boost as she tries to beef up her operations for the upcoming contests in Nevada and South Carolina.

The moderate senator from Minnesota had languished in the middle of a large Democratic pack before a strong debate performance last Friday — and rival Joe Biden’s stumbles in Iowa and New Hampshire — sparked new interest in her candidacy.

“Thanks to the team’s strong showing, we raised more than $2.5 million since the polls closed,” campaign manager Justin Buoen said on Twitter. “Bring on Nevada, South Carolina and beyond!”
