The DNC also saw a 60 percent increase in the number of donors who contributed in the first 100 days of the Biden administration compared to four years ago, which a senior spokesperson said is “further demonstrating strong enthusiasm for President Biden.”

The DNC said the average donation in the first 100 days was $23.

One of the DNC’s top 10 fundraising days was last week, when Biden delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress, the organization said.

The party brought in six times as much money online between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. Eastern time than it did the night before. The night brought in donations from all 50 states, according to the DNC.

A senior DNC spokesperson said that “organic online contributions were up over 700% from the previous day before the speech.”

Additionally, the party said it saw an increase in donations when Biden held a campaign rally in Georgia to celebrate his first 100 days.

The news of the DNC’s fundraising numbers comes nearly one month after the party beefed up its finance team, hiring a slate of experienced staffers to help support the committee as it heads into the 2022 midterm cycle.

Last month, the Republican National Committee announced that it raised nearly $17.8 million in March, bringing its first-quarter fundraising haul to $44.4 million.

The party said it was its best off-cycle quarter for digital fundraising, and its third-best March total ever.
