Sanders joins a crowded field of Democrats in the year 2020-race; the reaction and the analysis from the ‘Special Report’ All-Star panel.

Sen Bernie Sanders on picking up almost $6 million since the launch of its 2020 bid for the White house — per day.

The independent senator from Vermont presidential campaign announced on Wednesday morning they received an eye-popping $5.9 million of contributions in the 24 hours since 7 PM Tuesday, when Sanders officially announced his candidacy to take back.

The campaign touted the 223,047 people’s contributions, on average, almost $27 per person, just as it was during his 2016 offer.

BERNIE ENTERS 2020 RACE

The haul was the product of an aggressive fundraising push by the Sanders campaign with E-Mails and texts, to ask for contributions until late in the Tuesday evening.

An E-Mail that hit inboxes at 9 a.m. ET, pointed out that “the clock is ticking towards midnight, we’re pretty close, in a couple of goals we do not believe us, frankly, would be possible on the first day.”

The big fundraising haul is more than double the $1.5 million Sen. Kamala Harris of California – one of Sanders’ many rivals for the nomination, raised last month in the first 24 hours of the action. Harris had the largest first-day Fund-raising campaign under the ever-growing field of 2020 Democrats.

COLBERT MOCKED SANDERS

Sanders is entering the race as the apparent leader in the polls, thanks to his nationwide name ID, a massive campaign E-Mail list of supporters across the country, and a powerful digital team.

But while Sanders, was to rekindle the energy of his 2016 primary bid, basically a one-to-one competition between him and Hillary Clinton at the end he stands in front of a much wider field in this time-against a number of candidates who have accepted, his big-government policies.

The Republican National Committee, in a statement, calling him a “self-confessed socialist who wants to control double your so that the government can worry about their health.”

On Wednesday, President of the Trump brand, the him “Crazy Bernie tried.”

Sanders hit back with a tweet calling trump a “racist” — and with other fundraising appeal.

The progressive firebrand announced his candidacy in a video by E-Mail to supporters, as well as interviews, the Vermont Public Radio and CBS News. His campaign was broadcast, that the video was viewed more than 8.3 million times on social media.

In 2016, Sanders is a longshot against all-but-certain Democratic candidate, Clinton. But his crushing defeat of Clinton’s started this year in the New Hampshire primaries him in a marathon battle with the eventual candidate. The showdown at the end, not until he endorsed Clinton, in the summer.
