Update: The campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has since revised their numbers: It had raised about $26 million since July and has more than $26 million in cash on hand.
BURLINGTON, Vt. — Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont raised more than $24 million for his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in the last three months, a significant sum that was fueled by a torrid pace of online donations: more than a million so far.
Sanders advisers, in announcing the fund-raising tally on Wednesday night, also said that the senator had more than $25 million in cash on hand.
His leading Democratic opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is expected to announce her fund-raising numbers soon. As of June 30, the close of the second quarter, Mrs. Clinton had $28.9 million in cash on hand compared to $12.2 million for Mr. Sanders.
Mrs. Clinton has been raising money far more aggressively than Mr. Sanders, holding 10 times as many events with donors — many of whom contribute the $2,700 maximum to her primary campaign account.
Mr. Sanders’s advisers said they did not have data yet on the proportion of the donations that were $200 or less — a measure of grass-roots support and of his popularity among Americans who are not wealthy. Donations of $200 or less accounted for some 76 percent of the money he raised in the second-quarter campaign finance report.
