NYT, “Democrats shatter the ActBlue site’s donation records in the hours after Ginsburg’s death.”

2 min read

From The New York Times:

Democratic donors gave more money online in the 9 p.m. hour after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died — $6.2 million — than in any other single hour since ActBlue, the donation-processing site, was launched 16 years ago.

Then donors broke the site’s record again in the 10 p.m. hour when donors gave another $6.3 million — more than $100,000 per minute.

The unprecedented outpouring shows the power of a looming Supreme Court confirmation fight to motivate Democratic donors. The previous biggest hour saw $4.3 million in donations processed on Aug. 20, according to an ActBlue spokesperson, the final night of last month’s convention, when Joseph R. Biden Jr. spoke.

This is very encouraging because it shows that our side is riled up and ready to go. We have a huge fight ahead of us and winning the White House and the Senate have never been more important than now. Let’s keep up the momentum in honor of RBG’s legacy.
