VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign says it raised more than $46.5 million in February.

The impressive show of financial strength was announced a day after the Vermont senator finished a distant second behind Joe Biden in South Carolina's primary.

His chief rival for the Democratic Party's progressive wing, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, announced raising $29 million for the same month.

Sanders' team also said it was making television ad buys in nine states voting on March 10 or 17. It said it is “currently on the air in 12 out of the 14 states” voting on Super Tuesday in two days.

Warren's campaign also announced ad buys for Super Tuesday and beyond, and said it expects the Democratic field to winnow substantially in the coming week.
