Ginsburg's passing really broke my wife.

She was crying last night. Ginsburg really was her hero. I want to make a donation in Ginsburg's memory to the senate seats most likely to flip. Any suggestions? Progressives, women, or minority candidates would be a bonus but I am a pragmatic guy would prefer seats which are winnable.
Based on suggestions I am going to donate to
in memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in order to try and turn the Senate blue and protect her legacy.
Page came up and if i donated again it was 600% match.
McGrath is down nearly 20 points. Shes so done shes falling off the bone.
"A recent poll carried out by Quinnipiac University showed McConnell with the support of 49 percent of Kentucky voters compared to just 44 percent backing McGrath. But polling by Bluegrass Data Analytics showed a somewhat closer race, although McConnell still led by 3 percentage points. In that survey, the Republican was supported by 49 percent of Kentucky voters as opposed to 46 percent who backed the Democratic challenger." Per Newsweek, on 9/15.
She can do it.
Get Mitch or Die Trying
Contributions are split among about a dozen top Senate races that the organization believes will make the biggest difference, including Jaime Harrison.
We are all devastated by the loss of RBG, but my heart goes out to your wife for taking it so especially hard.
And to Jaime Harrison directly and to the NVDems. Three donations in 1 hour after learning of RBGs death. Im a retiree and on a fixed income, but this is the most important election of my life and I give what I can.
As soon as we heard the bad news my wife called our granddaughter to console her. I can't think of a better role-model than Ginsburg and I'm so glad my granddaughter felt a strong attachment to her.
I made contributions to Biden/Harris, Doug Jones-Alabama and Lauren Underwood-House-Illinois, this morning.

So def going with ...
Any other suggestions welcome. Thanks.
the race is a dead heat and we really need to get Ernst out of there.
She is on the list. Thanks.
Alcohol may or may not have been involved. Anyways money for a good cause.
The passing of RBG has not put her into a better state of emotional health.
an alternative, like moving to another country, as hard as it would be. She needs to not let him win over her.
She'd prefer Canada, but they don't take people over 60 unless sponsored by a relative. Unfortunately my sister has some serious health problems and will soon turn 66.
For the most part she's been positive in dealing with her health but Trump has almost driven her to despair, and I hope RBG passing won't push her over the edge.
Thank you for caring.
They are in a tie right now. There is a good chance to win this.
the other three are good idea as well.
Not sure why the Gideon donation got split with Merkley but that's what ActBlue said.
This race is kind of easy to overlook, but this may be the biggest bang for the buck. Because of the small number of people living in Alaska there are fewer individuals to flip for the seat that counts as much as any other state.
This is how I "sprinkled the infield"....
(NC-D) Cal Cunningham
(MI-D) Gary Peters +4
Georgia (D)Jon Ossoff
(SC-D) Jaime Harrison DOUBLE
Kansas (D) Dr. Barbara Bollier
Alaska (I- backed by Ds) Al Gross
Iowa-D Theresa Greenfield
I left work early last night because I was so upset. I decided to donate to Amy McGrath in RBG's memory.

There is a map where you can hover over a state and see the Senate race(s)
Scroll down a ways, and there is a table below the map, default is sorted by 538's probability of winning. As of Sept 19, in order of the tightest races (these are probabilities that the indicated party will win (all of the Senate races are listed, I'm just showing the top 4 here) :
#1 Maine 52% (D),
#2 Iowa 59% (R),
#3 N.Car 62% (D),
#4 Colo 68% (D) .
In 3 of the 4, the Dem has best chance to win. The other, Iowa, has horrible sickening Joni Ernst (R) ahead of Theresa Greenfield -- this after being almost tied.
Click on any row in this table to see the polls for that race
Being from Minnesota, I so want that Iowa puke-wagon out.
(Minnesota doesn't have a close Senate race, thankfully, despite two (two!) Cannabis party clowns on the ballot -- yes, two (two!) legalize cannabis parties achieved major party status in Minnesota (the Green Party did not, but I wonder which is more of a spoiler threat).
I heard a sound at my window and went out and found one of my hummers dead on the ground. It was like all things beautiful were dying. It was the straw that broke the camel's back. I'm beyond sad.
I spoke with a friend, a female minister today, in person at an event. We both just shook our heads in grief over RBG's passing, "for so many reasons," she said.
