Red to Blue

Last week the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC)
unveiled phase one of their Red to Blue fundraising campaign, which
focused on raising funds for Democrats running in open districts.  The
DCCC has partnered with ActBlue to raise funds through the Red to Blue fundraising page. Initially eight
candidates were chosen, but the announced retirement of Republican Congressman
Jim Walsh (NY-25) created yet another opportunity for Democratic
victory. 

ActBlue’s
website makes it easy to make immediate changes to any fundraising
page.  Within 24 hours Democratic challenger Dan Maffei was added to
the Red to Blue campaign and its page.  Upon hearing the news Democrats
could immediately go online and take action for Maffei.  As of this
morning 681 ActBlue Democrats have contributed $22,014 to Maffei’s
campaign.   

It’s worth noting that the list of Red to Blue
candidates reads like a virtual Who’s Who of ActBlue stars.  Many of
these candidates had trouble attracting institutional support, but a
strong presence on ActBlue allowed them to build and showcase their
grassroots momentum online.  The Red to Blue Campaign is just one of
hundreds of examples of how ActBlue Democrats are changing the face of
politics across the nation.
