Sanders led the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate field following wins in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada but fell behind as former vice president Joe Biden picked up more and more states. Sanders’s campaign ended February having raised $182 million in funding, including $46 million in February alone.
