MANCHESTER, N.H. — Amy Klobuchar’s campaign said it had raised $2 million from donors in all 50 states since Friday night’s debate, in which she went on the offensive against the front-runners for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The pace was a sharp uptick from her previous level when she raised $11.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

“With proven grassroots support, Amy continues to outperform expectations and punch above her weight,” campaign manager Justin Buoen said in a statement.

At a debate in Manchester, New Hampshire, the Minnesota senator said Bernie Sanders would turn off moderate voters, called Medicare for All proposals unrealistic and argued that Pete Buttigieg was too inexperienced to be president.

Still, Klobuchar faces an uphill race in the Democratic primary. She came in fifth place in the Iowa caucuses, with 12.3% of the vote. In the Real Clear Politics average of polls in New Hampshire, she’s currently in fifth place.
