Special Act Blue/Kos Fund targeting House GOP hits 1 MILLION IN 24 HOURS!

This is unbelievable. No, not that House Republicans voted to take health care from 24 million people and then celebrated with beer and a White House photo op—that’s all too believable—but the productive fury with which the grassroots responded. In just over 24 hours, the Daily Kos fundraising effort targeting 24 vulnerable Republicans who voted for Trumpcare has raised $1 million. That is one million dollars from more than 21,000 small donors. As Daily Kos political director David Nir said Thursday, and the community followed through on, “We will raise in five hours what we raised for Jon Ossoff in a week and for Elizabeth Warren in a year.”

This isn’t just about the money that will go to the eventual Democratic nominees facing those 24 Republicans, though that’s an important piece of the puzzle. This is also about sending a message to Republicans, including Senate Republicans, that voting against affordable health care will have consequences. So it’s important that the word gets out about what the Democratic grassroots is doing here—at Daily Kos and elsewhere. And yes, word is getting out.

The Atlantic: “Democrats target vulnerable Republicans over Obamacare repeal vote.”

Vox: “’I’ve never seen anything like this’: progressives see huge donation spike after AHCA vote.”

Washington Examiner: “Liberals raise $2 million off GOP healthcare bill.”

Business Insider: “Democratic groups raised millions for 2018 after House Republicans passed their healthcare overhaul.”
