Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren took in about $800,000 in itemized donations from her home state last quarter. That's about 4% of the Democrat's overall haul in April, May and June.

Federal Elections Commission data show how much Massachusetts donors fueled the presidential candidates in the second quarter. Campaigns only need to report itemized data on contributions, including donor address, when they exceed $200 total from an individual during a campaign cycle. So small-money donors aren't included in this data.

Warren has eschewed big fundraising events. So has Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who drew more than $220,000 from itemized Massachusetts donors the last three months.

Fellow Democrat Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, raised about $1 million from Massachusetts donors last quarter, likely helped by big-money fundraisers in the Bay State.

Mayor Pete has returned again and again to Massachusetts, including stops over the July Fourth weekend in Provincetown, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. He raised more from Massachusetts in the second quarter than any other state — except for California and New York.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton raised nearly $600,000 from the state over the quarter, according to data released after this post was first published.

Here's what many of the Democratic candidates who filed detailed reports raised from Massachusetts in April, May and June:

  • Pete Buttigieg: $980,856 (3.9% of total raised)
  • Elizabeth Warren: $799,984 (4.2%)
  • Joe Biden: $591,049 (2.7%)
  • Seth Moulton: $571,888 (29.4%)
  • Bernie Sanders: $224,830 (0.9%)
  • Kirsten Gillibrand: $142,475 (6.2%)
  • Kamala Harris: $136,956 (1.2%)
  • Amy Klobuchar: $111,960 (2.9%)
  • Cory Booker $104,160 (2.3%)
  • Beto O'Rourke: $51,374 (1.4%)
  • John Hickenlooper: $30,420 (2.6%)
  • Andrew Yang: $28,952 (1%)
  • Jay Inslee: $19,647 (0.6%)
  • Julian Castro: $13,718 (0.5%)

Correction: An earlier version of this story highlighted Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard's impressive haul in Massachusetts. However, it appears certain candidates include their data from Massachusetts-based fundraiser ActBlue differently, skewing that data. This post has been updated to make it clear that the totals above only cover itemized donations. We regret the error.

Updates: Additionally, this post was updated throughout on July 26 with newer data from the FEC.
