Cory Booker took a gambit on Saturday when his campaign manager said the New Jersey senator’s bid for the presidency come to an end soon if they don’t raise $1.7 million by the end of the month.

The threat of Booker’s withdrawal led to the best fundraising day of the campaign, his campaign manager said, bringing $300,495, — 93% of it raised online — with 8,403 total donations that make up 17.7% of the total goal, according to Booker campaign manager Addisu Demissie.

“The stakes couldn’t be higher for the future of our campaign, and we’re absolutely blown away by the response on day one,” Addisu Demissie said. “People really stepped up and responded — clearly there is a desire to keep Cory in this race and help us build our organization in a way that puts us on a path to win the nomination.”

Booker still needs to raise $155,500 every day for the rest of the month to meet his goal.
