Washington (CNN)Bernie Sanders' campaign said Tuesday it had raised $3 million through online fundraising 24 hours after he nearly beat Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses.

The campaign raised the massive haul after Sanders gave his speech Monday night, campaign spokesman Michael Briggs said.
It's a show of fundraising prowess from Sanders that comes right as he and Clinton square off in New Hampshire.
Sanders has largely kept pace with Clinton in the money race throughout the campaign, logging $20 million in January alone, according to his campaign.
The Sanders campaign has touted its online fundraising after events like Democratic and Republican debates and taunted the Democratic National Committee in December, saying it raised $1 million following a dustup over a voter database breach.
