Sanders' April intake dropped nearly 40 percent from the month before. He raised $25.8 million, the campaign reported Sunday morning. Sanders raised $44 million in March and $42 million in February.

"Sanders is the candidate with the most energy and excitement. He is the candidate with the best chance of winning in November.
