Yes we did. It happened over night. To everyone that contributed thank you so much.

I've been a pain in the ass to get us to this point. But it worked. Not bad for an old man with dementia problems.

I'm not upping the goal for a few days while we take this all in.

(22,421 posts)I do want to point something out, just in case anyone is wondering why there's an apparent discrepancy between the fact that DUers can raise a million dollars for Joe Biden but I had to dig out Grovelbot last week and hit everyone up for a few bucks: the answer is that if you Google the phrase *Donate to Joe Biden*, Steve's ActBlue page is the third result from the top:

https://www.google.com/search?q=donate+to+joe+biden&oq=donate+to+joe+biden

It appears just below an ad for ActBlue and the official Joe Biden website. We suspect that a LOT of non-DUers are finding Steve's page this way, which is why he's been able to reach such a huge total. So while I'm sure a great many DUers have generously donated through Steve's page, it's not just DU members who have contributed to that million dollars.

This isn't meant to diminish Steve's achievement at all! In fact, it's a combination of his tenacity promoting the page, and DU's reach, which has caused the page to rise to the top of the search rankings and collect so many donations. So well done Steve, and also well done to everyone at DU.

While I encourage everyone to give what they can to the Biden campaign, it looks like Duhneece's campaign could use a boost, so if anyone has any cash to spare I'd definitely suggest folks make a donation to her campaign.
