YOUNG JOE BIDEN:

Beto O'Rourke Raised $6.1 Million Online in First 24 Hours of Campaign (Jonathan Martin, March 18, 2019, NY Times)

Beto O'Rourke raised more than $6 million online in the first 24 hours after announcing his presidential campaign last week, according to his campaign, outpacing his rivals for the Democratic nomination and making an emphatic statement about his grass-roots financial strength. [...]

Mr. O'Rourke's early burst of fund-raising illustrates how much he has captured the imagination of many Democratic activists around the country, who propelled him to break financial records last year in his ultimately losing bid to unseat Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. There were some doubts as to whether those same grass-roots donors would also contribute to him when he was not facing Mr. Cruz -- a detested figure on the left -- but rather was one more entrant in a sprawling presidential primary.
