ActBlue had already announced that Democratic candidates had received more than $91 million in 28 hours after the Supreme Court announced Ginsburg’s death on Sept. 18. 

Swing Left, a Democratic group that aims to flip the Senate to Democratic control, told The Hill that it has raised more than $2.6 million for Senate candidates and more than $1.7 million for state legislative races since Ginsburg's passing.


The group says that, for the entire election cycle, it has raised more than $18 million from grassroots donors.

Catherine Vaughan, the co-executive director of Swing Left, told CNN that donations usually ramp up closer to Election Day, but the justice’s death sparked a flood of contributions. 

GiveGreen, an organization that supports environmentally friendly candidates, confirmed to The Hill that it has received more than $37 million to support its candidates as of Monday morning.

In 2016, GiveGreen said it raised $8 million, less than a fourth of this year's total. 

ActBlue reported record donations — $6.3 million in one hour and $70.6 million in one day — following Ginsburg's death. The previous hourly record reached slightly more than $4 million, and the previous daily record hit $42 million.
