Activity Report: September 9th-15th, 2007

This is our latest installment of our Weekly ActBlue Activity Reports. The last posted report is here. (Week over week changes in parentheses)

I’ve added a new statistic this week– the total number of campaigns/committees who received funds for the first time though ActBlue. These are often new campaigns that have filed and started raising money and will continue to do so into the future. Others are candidates or groups ActBlue has listed in our directory for some time and have only just now had their first contribution through us.

Total Amount Contributed last week: $378,409.86 (+ $59,418)
Total # of Contributions: 2,935 (- 2,457)
Avg. Contribution size: $128.93 (+ $69.77)

A quick glance at this activity shows a lot of money moving into campaigns for the U.S. Senate. Last week saw the entrance of Mark Warner into the Virginia Senate race which helped rocket him up the ActBlue charts. Tim Johnson’s colleagues continued to raise funds in honor of his return to the Senate which we discussed in this post. Sen. Tom Harkin hosted his 30th Annual Steak Fry over the weekend boosting him into the top tier as well.
