WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden raised $26 million for his presidential campaign in the 24 hours that followed his announcement that California Sen. Kamala Harris would be his running mate.

Biden’s campaign says the sum more that doubled the campaign’s previous record.

It also received contributions from more than 150,000 new donors.

Harris is a prolific fundraiser, and she is expected to play a prominent role bringing in money for the campaign.

Democrats are close to matching the massive $300 million cash stockpile President Donald Trump and the Republicans reported in July.
