Inslee campaign says it’s received 10,000 donations since CNN debate

Just hours after the second democratic presidential debate wrapped up, Washington Governor Jay Inslee’s campaign announced it had received 10,000 new donations since the nationally televised event.

The debate concluded at 8:00 p.m. PST. Inslee tweeted the news at 10:25 a.m. PST.

The campaign will need to continue the momentum in order to make it onto the stage for the next debate, set for Sept. 12 and 13 in Houston. Requirements to quality for that debate have been set much higher.

For fundraising, candidates will need the support of at least 130,000 unique donors, including at least 400 unique donors per state in at least 20 states. While it’s not clear how many individual donors the Inslee campaign has garnered so far, the 10,000-donor post-debate push represents at least a small step in the right direction for Inslee.

For polling, candidates need to receive 2% support or higher in four different polls between June 28 and August 28. The polls must be produced from a list of pollsters approved by the Democratic National Committee.

According to the New York Times, only seven candidates have already met the third debate criteria. Those candidates are:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey

Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind.

Senator Kamala Harris of California

Former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts
