Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is piling up the campaign contributions even though he is not up for re-election for four more years.

Sanders' latest filing with the Federal Election Commission shows he raked in a whopping $715,955.13 in the last three months for a total of $871,977.11 since his last election in 2012.

Sanders already had a huge amount left over from that race and now has a total of $4,402,194.42 in the bank.

The spike in donations in recent months may have been caused by his interest is the 2016 presidential race. Sanders says he is considering running to make sure progressive issues have a voice in the campaign.
