Just in time for the FEC filing deadline, Bernie Sanders received his one-millionth online campaign contribution.

The announcement was first made in a post to the grassroots-run Sanders for president community on Reddit, with emails being sent out to supporters around the same time.

Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator from Vermont, has received the most donations out of any candidate for president this cycle, and is expected to report total revenues in the tens of millions in the next FEC filing.

It wasn’t until February 2008 that Barack Obama reached his one-millionth campaign contribution, and that number included donations both online and offline.

At the last FEC filing, Bernie 2016¬†reported revenues of $15 million, compared to Clinton’s $47 million.
