In North Carolina, Cal Cunningham raised $6 million. And we nonetheless don’t know the way a lot Mark Kelly in Arizona or Sara Gideon in Maine or Jaime Harrison in South Carolina or Amy McGrath in Kentucky have raised—all or any of them may need topped Cunningham, and for Harrison, that may come on high of a multimillion greenback week earlier than Ginsburg’s demise. Already, Gideon has reserved a further $600,000 in cable advertisements.
Jon Ossoff or Raphael Warnock in Georgia might have completed very nicely. Or Theresa Greenfield in Iowa. Steve Bullock in Montana. MJ Hegar in Texas. John Hickenlooper in Colorado. Any of those candidates might have had report weekends.
ActBlue had a report $160 million weekend, so we are able to assume that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in all probability did okay as nicely.
None of this will get again the nice Justice Ginsburg. None of it undoes the far-right extremist decide the Republicans are about to jam via the Senate in report time. We nonetheless don’t know the way the general voter mobilization impact of the Supreme Courtroom combat will shake out—will Republicans retain their historic edge in turning out voters over the courts, or does this monetary tsunami on the Democratic aspect portend a voting tsunami as nicely?
However the cash doesn’t damage one bit in the case of placing each doable seat on the desk.
