Most recently, presidential candidate and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $5 million to the group just before Christmas, while Montana philanthropist Diana Blank, ex-wife of Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank, gave $500,000, as did - combined - two major national unions.
About three-fourths of the money from those who contributed $100 or more came from outside of Georgia. With Bloomberg’s contributions, New York ranked as the largest donor by state, with $6.1 million. Californians gave about $2 million in the final six months of 2019.
Fair Fight received money from tens of thousands of donors.
The pattern was similar to Abrams’ gubernatorial campaign, when she raised a record $27 million and took in money from thousands of donors across the country who gave small amounts and big.
The PAC contributed more than $1 million to state Democratic Party organizations across the country, from Maine to Arizona. Georgia’s Democratic Party received $375,000.
