Democratic Donations After Ginsburg Death Near $100 Million

Donations to Democratic candidates and causes surged upon the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, nearing $100 million early Sunday and still rising.

ActBlue, a key fundraising platform for the left including Joe Bidenís campaign against President Donald Trump, took in more than $97 million between the announcement of Ginsburgís death and 9:30 a.m. Sunday. Using ActBlue, donors earmark money for Democratic candidates and causes they want to support.

Donors set records for the amount raised in one day on Saturday, giving $70.6 million, and twice broke the record for donations in one hour. In August, ActBlue brought in $485.4 million, or about $15.7 million a day.

ActBlue processes grassroots donations for Bidenís campaign, as well as for Senate candidates and key liberal groups. While the Biden campaign refrained from including a fundraising link in an email sent to supporters on Friday night, one was included in a Saturday morning message signed by vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

5. True. Plus I don't think any of the Magats that I know could

name their own senator or house member let alone pick a competitive race in another state for donation.
