Other Democratic primary candidates have not disclosed these initial fundraising numbers. Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro are among those who haven’t done so, which might be connected to the fact that they have vowed to shun big donors and all PAC money during their campaigns.

This chart shows how much Democratic primary candidates raised in the first days after their presidential campaign announcements.
