Democratic fundraising platform ActBlue has reported getting at least $100 million from small-dollar donors in the wake of iconic liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death on Friday, and that surge in giving coincides with news that the party’s presidential nominee, Joe Biden, started this month with more cash on hand than President Donald Trump.

ActBlue tweeted on Sunday morning that people had given $100 million to “candidates up and down the ballot and orgs on the front lines of the impending judicial confirmation fight.” More money likely has come in through Monday morning, with Democratic voters inspired to open their wallets as Trump urges the Republican-run Senate to consider his upcoming nomination “without delay.”
