  Is 8 enough? Court vacancy could roil possible election case WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death has left the Supreme Court shorthanded during a polarizing presidential campaign in which President Donald Trump has already suggested he may not accept the outcome and the court could be called on to step in and decide the fate of the nation.

Swing Left, a Democratic group that aims to flip the Senate to Democratic control, told The Hill that it has raised more than $2.6 million for Senate candidates and more than $1.7 million for state legislative races since Ginsburg's passing.

The group says that, for the entire election cycle, it has raised more than $18 million from grassroots donors.

Catherine Vaughan, the co-executive director of Swing Left, told CNN that donations usually ramp up closer to Election Day, but the justice's death sparked a flood of contributions.

GiveGreen, an organization that supports environmentally friendly candidates, told CNN it has received more than $37 million to support its candidates as of Monday morning. More than $18 million is designated for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign, and more than $12 million is marked for House and Senate races.

In 2016, GiveGreen said it raised $8 million, less than a fourth of this year's total.

ActBlue reported record donations - $6.3 million in one hour and $70.6 million in one day - following Ginsburg's death. The previous hourly record reached slightly more than $4 million, and the previous daily record hit $42 million.
