” PAUL RYAN IS THE ONLY REPUBLICAN TO RECIEVE DEMOCRAT SUPERPAC FUNDING FROM SHAREBLUE AFFILIATE. “
Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and other democrats actively receive campaign donations from ActBlue. According to OpenSecrets.org, Paul Ryan and Rob Portman are the only republicans to ever accept campaign donations from ActBlue. The similarly named Shareblue SuperPAC publicly works with ActBlue as seen here on Twitter. John McCain admitted to being an early adopter of ActBlue’s online marketing strategy. However, he is not listed as receiving funds from ActBlue. ActBlue bills itself as “the online clearinghouse for Democratic action.” As a federally registered political action committee, it serves as a conduit for online contributions to Democratic candidates and committees. That is, ActBlue bundles and transmits earmarked contributions from individuals raised on their website to specific candidates. The organization assists Democratic candidates and committees of all ideological persuasion, helping moderates and liberals alike. Through mid-2010, it has helped funnel more than $134 million — and counting — in contributions. Because much of that money comes in donations below the $200 threshold for itemized disclosure, the total amount given by donors via ActBlue is considerably greater than the totals listed below, which are based on FEC filings of candidates and committees that receive this money.
