$4.6 million in grassroots gifts support record-breaking February
Today the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced it raised a record-breaking $11.6 million during February, outpacing any previous on-year or off-year February haul in the DCCC’s history.
Of the $11.6 million, $4.6 million came through grassroots networks online, on the phone, or in the mail. Grassroots supporters gave nearly $3 million in online donations alone, with an average contribution of $18 in February.
“Democrats across America aren’t wasting a second to protect and expand our new majority,” said DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos. “The fact that we just had our strongest February in the history of the DCCC shows that our momentum is only growing. I’m proud to lead a DCCC that’s supported by grassroots donors who believe in bringing down the cost of health care, raising wages for everyday Americans, and holding Washington Republicans accountable for their culture of corruption.”
