Senate Democrats' campaign arm raised an impressive $2.5 million during the two and a half days following the Supreme Court's decision to uphold President Obama's health care law.
The high court delivered its ruling on the morning of June 28. On the same day, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee broke its previous record for the number of online donations in a day, the committee announced on Thursday. On June 30, the committee broke its record once again.
The DSCC's success is on par with what House Democrats hauled in the days following the ruling. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee brought in $2.3 million in the days following the ruling.
The financial success enjoyed by the two party committees is a reminder that divisive policy measures and rulings aren't only catalysts for adversarial enthusiasm; proponents of the health care law have clearly been energized by the high court's decision.
