Daily Kos announces release of nominee funds to Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Washington Democrats
On Tuesday night, Daily Kos announced the latest disbursement of Democratic Nominee Funds raised through ActBlue after recent primary elections in Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, and Washington. The Democratic nominees in Kansas’s 3rd Congressional District, Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Minnesota’s 2nd and 3rd Congressional Districts, and Washington’s 8th Congressional District will receive their share of over $300,000 from more than 150,000 individual, small-dollar grassroots donations the Daily Kos community has given to eject Republicans from these House seats.
“The Daily Kos community has raised over $2.1 million to oust Republicans from 40 U.S. House seats and three U.S. Senate seats since first launching our effort around ActBlue’s nominee funds last year,” said Daily Kos Political Director David Nir. “Daily Kos identified an opportunity early in the cycle to leverage the strength of small-dollar grassroots fundraising to evict Republicans from seats Democrats have a strong opportunity to flip this November. We’re thrilled to see these funds from this effort get deployed to support Democratic efforts in these key states.”
Daily Kos has led the way in supporting Democrats across the country this cycle, raising over $5.8 million for candidates in small, grassroots donations in 2017-2018. We will continue to analyze and invest in key races nationwide.
