Joe Biden raised $21.5 million in the two months since entering the Democratic presidential race in late April, his campaign said in an email to supporters.

The total puts the former vice president’s campaign behind the $24.8 million raised in the second quarter by Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who was little known outside his home state just a few months ago. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who’s been in second place behind Biden in most polls, announced Tuesday that he’d raised $18 million in the quarter beginning April 1.
