Joe Biden, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Pete Buttigieg are the frontrunners among the biggest fundraisers in the Democratic Party, Politico reports.

Of the 1,923 big donors who raised money for former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, nearly half have contributed to the current field of candidates. Biden, Buttigieg, and Harris have secured most of those donations.

Biden, the former vice president, leads the presidential primary race, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., not far behind, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey.

Harris and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., each have 13% of support while Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, rounds out the top five contenders at 7%.

Sanders and Warren, according to a Politico analysis of Federal Election Commission data, have brought in most of their campaign funds through small donations online.

But wealthy individuals are mostly backing Buttigieg, Biden, and Harris. Biden has received the most donations from the fundraisers, bringing in money from 253 of them.

"The main issue with [Warren] is that she hasn't been doing events, and I'm not saying this on behalf of myself, but I think for some people having that opportunity to meet her is really important," Dale Schroedel, a political organizer and former Clinton fundraiser, told Politico. "So, they don't give, if they don't have that opportunity."
