Scott Murphy won his special election today for the NY-20 seat after James Tedisco conceded (TPM, NYT).
ActBlue was there from start to finish. His early numbers at ActBlue demonstrated his viability in the first weeks of the race. As the race tightened in the final weeks, Senator Gillibrand and General Wesley Clark added to the momentum with fundraising asks. And within hours of the initial election results, we set up the New York Victory Protection Fund between the state party and the campaign to protect the election.
Each of these successes contributed to the next because of our commitment to transparency. Donors, fundraisers, and the press could all see the campaign building strength each day.
We’re proud to play a role in every step of Democratic victory. Congratulations, Congressman Murphy.
