Williamson appeared to acknowledge her total was on the smaller side, but said it speaks to the support her long-shot candidacy has garnered. 

“It’s so obscene, the part that money plays on our political system,” she said. “Most of us live in a universe where $3 million is like a big deal. In presidential fundraising, it’s like she just squeaked by.” 

“But 3 million dollars definitely says there are a lot of people out there saying you still and you keep going, and I appreciate that so much,” she added.

Williamson has garnered attention due to her unconventional campaign style. She earned the title of most searched for candidate during the second Democratic debate in July after her comments about reparations, poverty and “dark psychic forces” drew rounds of applause from the debate-hall audience.

However, Williamson has since lagged in the polls and did not qualify for the September and October debates.
