Washington (AP) -- Two Democratic Presidential candidates have broken previous fundraising records for the first quarter.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton brought in $26 million in new contributions during the first three months of the year. Clinton also transferred $10 million from her senate campaign account, bringing her total receipts for the quarter to $36 million.
Former Senator John Edwards raised more than $14 million.
Among the other candidates: New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson's campaign says it brought in $6 million in primary campaign money. Aides to Senator Chris Dodd say he has raised more than $4 million.
Senator Joseph Biden has total receipts close to $4 million for the quarter. That includes less than $2 million transferred from his senate campaign account.
The rest of the Democratic field and the Republican presidential candidates plan to announce their first-quarter totals over the next few days.
