Booker meets fundraising goal one day ahead of deadline

Senator warned presidential campaign could end if he didn’t raise $1.7 million by October

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s campaign reached its self-imposed fundraising goal Sunday night.

Booker’s campaign said it brought in at least $1,783,505 million by 8:16 p.m. Sunday, beating it’s $1.7 million goal a day ahead of its Sept. 30 deadline.

The senator’s presidential campaign is now aiming to raise $2 million before midnight Monday, though that fundraising push isn’t accompanied by a doom-and-gloom call saying Booker may have to end his bid if the goal is not reached.

The campaign said it received 40,625 over the nine-day period following the first call for donations.

On Sunday, Booker announced he had reached the donor-threshold needed to qualify for the November Democratic presidential primary debate.

The Democratic National Committee raised the requirements to qualify for that debate, mandating that candidates must amass 165,000 unique donors with at least 600 from 20 states to appear on stage.

Booker has already qualified for October’s Democratic presidential primary debate.
