The GOP is feeling the pressure. Paul Ryan gave House Republicans a warning last week, saying it's unacceptable for Democrats to be outraising them, after Democratic challengers raised more money than over 40 GOP House incumbents in the last quarter of 2017. Ryan warned Republicans that they need to work harder.

Dear byong,

The GOP is feeling the pressure. Paul Ryan gave House Republicans a warning last week, saying it's unacceptable for Democrats to be outraising them, after Democratic challengers raised more money than over 40 GOP House incumbents in the last quarter of 2017. Ryan warned Republicans that they need to work harder.

What exactly does that mean? They'll need to spend time courting more mega-donors, and finding more folks to write massive checks. And not just for House races.

Politico is reporting that Democrats are "dominating the Senate fundraising battle" and Republicans are worried about holding their majority.

Not only are Democrats raising more money, but they're raising it from grassroots donors using ActBlue. And doing that takes real organizing work to build a winning movement. It's not as simple as raising a quick million dollars from one or two donors.

At ActBlue we work hard to make sure our fundraising platform is fully equipped to help every small-dollar donor make their voice heard over big-dollar backers. We're a nonprofit, so we need your help to make sure we can continue helping Democrats outraise the GOP. Will you chip in $3 a month to support our tools?

Because you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Express Donate: $3 a month

Express Donate: $10 a month

Express Donate: $25 a month

Express Donate: $50 a month

Using ActBlue to raise small-dollar donations, Democrats hit the ground running in 2018, and their early efforts have them at an advantage.

But folks like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson are already preparing to shell out millions to elect Republicans in November, and more mega-donors will come out of the woodwork. Democrats will need to keep up their work straight through Election Day in order to win big.

We're scaling up our tools to make sure our platform is ready to help thousands of Democrats raise the money to win this year, and we're counting on you to help us do it. Will you chip in $3 a month?
