Sen. Kamala Harris of California says she raised $12 million in the past three months — roughly equal to what she collected in the first fundraising quarter, which ended March 31.
Her fundraising total is significantly less than the $24.8 million raised by Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind.

Harris also raised less than former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Her campaign said July 5 that of the money she raised this quarter, half a million dollars came from her online store.
The campaign is pointing to sales of a shirt seeking to fundraise on the much-watched moment from the first Democratic presidential debate, when Biden struggled to respond to Harris’ tough questions about his past positions on public school busing.
