Whether or not you think Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won Tuesday night's Democratic debate, it's clear his campaign's bank account did.

Sanders raised $1.3 million dollars in the hours after the debate began, his campaign said in a statement. According to his campaign, they received at least 37,600 individual donations.

It wasn't for lack of trying, though. During the debate, Bernie 2016 emailed supporters touting a joke he made about being sick of Hillary Clinton's "damn emails."

"He got the biggest applause of the night," the email bragged.

Watch the quip in the video above.
