Democratic Small Donor Group Close to Raising a Massive $1 Billion For 2018 Midterms

As America gets closer and closer to the 2018 midterm elections, it appears Democrats will be going in with a substantial war chest if ActBlue’s fundraising numbers are any indication.

The fundraising tech company announced that they have raised $783 million since January 2017 — the month of President Donald Trump‘s inauguration — to support pro-left causes and candidates in the upcoming midterm elections.

While the 2016 election came with an overall price tag of approximately $6.5 billion, ActBlue’s $783 million is already more than what Hillary Clinton spent on her presidential campaign. Obviously, that just goes to show money isn’t everything in politics, but it also shows Democrats are giving it all they’ve got in hopes for a blue wave to sweep through Congress.
