Happy Blogosphere Day

A little late on the ball (I have a life, unfortunately), but the Swing State Project is participating in a July 19th one day event (Happy Blogosphere Day) to help raise funds for Paul Hackett, a Democrat running for a special election to Congress in Ohio’s 2nd District – and to demonstrate the power of the Blogosphere to change the financial dynamics of a political race overnight.
So far, according to Act Blue, he’s raised over $100,000 from approximately 2000 donors in a single day.
Pretty impressive. Not quite a match for the Republican fundraising machine (which deals in $50,000 chunks of chump change, not $50 chunks), but still quite nice.
