The campaign to re-elect President Donald Trump in 2020 will report the first quarter fundraising totals, and it will eclipse that of Democratic candidates Senators Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

According to numbers obtained by the Associated Press, the campaign will report raising $30.3 million for the first quarter of 2019.

Harris reported raising $12 million, while Sanders reported raising $18 million in the same period. Beto O'Rourke reported $9.4 million.

The vast majority of Trump's reelection fundraising (99 percent) came from donations that were less than $200 each, according to the campaign.

In a CNN interview with Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, he said they were developing a digital voter list that would dwarf the efforts that first got Trump into the Oval Office.

"It now has hundreds of millions of records in voter history, consumer data, and when we put polling data in that machine and we say this is what's happening," Parscale explained to Dana Bash, "it can spit out models saying these are the people you need to talk to, and these are the messages you should talk to them about."

The campaign now has $40.8 million on hand — an unprecedented sum for so early in a reelection campaign.
