Sanders' bid reaches turning point

OMAHA (KMTV) — Bernie Sanders received about $120,000 from Nebraskans through the end of June. That’s more than a quarter of the about $400,000 given from Nebraskans to all Democrats running for president during the same time frame.

3 News Now analyzed data including most individual donations to Democratic candidates for president. The data was provided by the Center for Public Integrity.

Joe Biden, who leads the polls by about 13 points, received about $42,500. That’s less than Sanders, Pete Buttigieg ($58,500) and Elizabeth Warren ($53,000).
