From the Democratic National Committee to the DU (thanks for the $2.4 MILLION+ in 2020)

The DU is now recognized as a player! Here is the letter.


Hello Steven,

I hope this email finds you well! My name is Eduardo, and I’m a staffer on the DNC’s Donor Cultivation team. I’m reaching out today to thank you for your generosity to the Biden-Harris reelection campaign.

The ActBlue community forms you created have generated incredible revenue for the campaign, allowing us to invest in staffing operations, campaign infrastructure, voter protection, and more. We could not be more grateful for your contributions and the support you have cultivated.

Last quarter, the campaign raised $72 million, which we could not have achieved without the support of dedicated Democrats like you. We’re going to need all hands on deck as President Biden and Vice President Harris return to the campaign trail to make their case to the American people. Together, we’ll lead the Biden-Harris ticket and Democrats across the nation to victory in 2024.

Thank you again for your support.

Impressive work, well done!

Just so everyone knows, not all of the money raised comes from DU members. We're kind of the "launchpad" if you like, but Steve has been so successful with his fundraising that he's managed to get his DU Act Blue pages at the top of Google's search results. For example, try searching for "donate to biden" and you'll see Steve's page right near the top.

So people from all over the Internet, not just on DU, are finding his pages and donating. That is not easy to do, so I'm glad the DNC has recognized his efforts.

I already have these three.

Donate to Biden-Harris here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/du4biden

The other two aren't so well known. The first is Ruben Gallego. He is running for Senator Sinema's seat in AZ.

Donate to Gallego here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/duforgallego

And Tony Vargas US Congress (NE-2). This is a toss up race in a battleground district. The DCCC has this on their target list to flip the house.

Donate to Tony here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/duforvargas24

I won't be creating any more links in the near future. Remind me around the first of the year.

Thanks for the suggestion,
