Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke raised over $3.6 million during the last three months, according to his campaign.

It’s a disappointing figure after O’Rourke entered the race with high expectations in mid-March, quickly emerging as one of the field’s top fundraisers. He hauled in $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his candidacy and $9.4 million in the first 18 days.

Monday was the deadline for campaigns to report their second-quarter finances to the Federal Election Commission.
