The Democratic party pulled in over $12 million in donations within 2 hours of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death this Friday, the New York Times reports.

“Democratic donors gave more money online in the 9 p.m. hour after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died — $6.2 million — than in any other single hour since ActBlue, the donation-processing site, was launched 16 years ago,” the Times’ report stated. “Then donors broke the site’s record again in the 10 p.m. hour when donors gave another $6.3 million — more than $100,000 per minute.”

Just hours after Ginsburg’s death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised to confirm whomever President Trump picks to replace her.

“President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate,” McConnell said in a statement.
