Thanks a lot to everyone who gave. We raised 1.3 million this cycle.
It’s fair to say that the down ballot races didn’t go as well as hoped, despite tons of money pouring in. I’m going to think about what are the best causes to raise money for as we go forward (I’m also going to raise money for Warnock and Ossoff, yes). Here is one that really delivered: Stacey Abrams’ group Fair Fight. By my count, there were 49 states where things didn’t go as well as I’d hoped last week and ONE STATE where things went much better. That one state is Georgia. This group’s work in registering 800K new people and getting automatic registration passed almost certainly played a big role in Biden winning Georgia.
I hope there is a lot of thinking being done by lots of Democratic donors right now and that they are considering making Fair Fight, and other groups like it, a top priority.

And, remember, don’t gloat, organize.
