WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Vice President Joe Biden raked in $21.5 million (£17.1 million) in the second fundraising quarter of the year, the second-highest total reported so far by a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, placing him behind only Pete Buttigieg, who raised $24.8 million.

In an email to supporters, the Biden campaign pointed out that Biden entered the race in late April after the quarter began, meaning that his per-day rate was the highest of any candidate so far.
