We raised over $10,000 in one day in the Corfield Money Bomb, & hit the top of ActBlue’s State Race Hotlist. Thank you, Blue Jersey, you DROVE that. — Rosi

1852What a difference a day makes! Yesterday was an amazing day for our whole team at the Corfield for Assembly Campaign and YOU played a big part! Within just 24 hours, our "Money Bomb", raised over $10,000 and propelled us to number 1 on the grassroots fundraising site ActBlue's National "Hot List" of State Races. Our effort was fueled by nearly 200 individual, small dollar contributions and dollar-matching sponsorships by groups and elected officials including the Communication Workers of America, the American Federation of Teachers, Pam's List, Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly, Mayor Jamel Holley of Roselle, The Hunterdon County Democratic Committee, and Somerset County Vice Chair Zenon Christodoulou, and driven by the power of individuals on social media. Our Twitter and Facebook feeds were buzzing with excitement as the word spread and donations came in from across the state—and the country!

I can't thank you enough for all your help and support. We couldn't be happier with the overwhelming response we received. The response from so many people both in and out of LD16 shows that New Jerseyans want to look forward, not backward, on issues such as jobs, women’s rights and education.

This is the is latest bright moment in our history of grassroots fundraising and activism. In 2012 you helped us be named the #1 Grassroots-Powered State Race in the U.S. on the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Essential Races List. Thank you again for helping us continue the momentum in true grass-roots fashion. And a special thanks to Democracy for America and the Network for Public Education for reaching out to their members yesterday. I am proud to be endorsed by both these organizations that stand up for America's hard working middle class, and I'm grateful for their role in spreading our message.
