Red to BOLD was officially launched earlier this week and, within hours, the PCCC said the seven candidates received more than $30,000 collectively with support from celebrities like Kerri Washington, Mark Ruffalo, Rosie O’Donnell and Alyssa Milano. 

“To achieve big change, I need more allies in Congress,” Porter said in an email kicking off Red to BOLD. “This country, and our work in Congress, will look very different if these Red to BOLD champions win in November. And I’m asking for your help to make it happen.”

The PCCC’s initial fundraising goal for Red to BOLD is $100,000 total and the group has already raised more than $1.3 million for all of its endorsed candidates this cycle.
