“Can Bernie Sanders win Iowa?” asks the CNN analyst covering the final-quarter fundraising in the Democratic primary. According to the presumed frontrunners’ performances — on money intake, anyway — Bernie has some serious resources to throw at the contest. Sanders scored $34.5 million in Q4, enough to take the lead away from Pete Buttigieg, who earlier announced a Q4 haul of $24.7.
Topline numbers aren’t everything, though, not to mention we haven’t seen them all yet:

Bernie Sanders raised more than $34.5 million for his White House bid during the final three months of 2019 — a sign of his considerable financial strength a little more than a month before Democrats begin selecting their 2020 presidential nominee. https://t.co/zFvjNCB8nZ pic.twitter.com/rmDpu0EQLr
