ActBlue Numbers

Ned just hit 1,000 donors, for a total of $54,631.69 so far.

Update: Ned blogs about the 1,000th donation at MyDD:

Last night at 9:52 PM EST, a little over two weeks from when we started receiving donations, and before we even officially announced my candidacy, the Lamont for Senate campaign received its thousandth donation online via ActBlue.

These are small donations, averaging less than $100 each by people who care deeply about having a vibrant democracy in our own country and who believe that voters in Connecticut deserve a choise in who will be their Senator in Washington.

Professors and students, mail carriers and writers, housewives, truck-drivers, meterologists, and people from all walks of life have come together to particpate in American democracy. Much of this initial support has been driven by the Netroots. This support symbolizes the type of grassroots participation that it will take to win on August 8th.

Thank you for the early boost and we look forward to your continued participation in our campaign to replace George Bush's favorite Democrat.
