The Left’s 2018 victory was fueled by millions of small-dollar donors—if Conservatives don’t catch up quickly, we will lose America Part 2 of 2

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
All total, ActBlue served as the conduit for raising more than $1.6 billion in the 2017-18 election cycle.  And remember, all of that went to the Democrats. In the midterm elections, the leftist tilt in small donations was critical for the Democrats’ success in taking over the House of Representatives.  The future is even more bleak—unless we conservatives wake up and get busy.
