Doug Jones, Democratic candidate for the Senate in Alabama, has been bringing in about $250,000 per day in online campaign donations since allegations were first published last week accusing his Republican foe Roy Moore with sexual misconduct, NBC News reported Friday, citing unnamed sources.

The donations coming in for Jones had reached "Ossoff-level money," according to one Democrat, referring to failed Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, who earlier this year lost his bid in a Georgia special election after bringing in $30 million in contributions.

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut raised over $135,000 for Jones, according to an aide. And Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, and Tim Kaine of Virginia have reached out to their online donors on Jones' behalf.

"We have seen a pickup in fundraising since Roy Moore was nominated and Alabama's choice became clear," Jones' campaign chairman Giles Perkins said in a statement.

The Republican National Committee and the Senate GOP arm have severed ties following the allegations against Moore, while numerous GOP groups in Alabama, including the Alabama Republican Party, have continued to back Moore, Politico reported Thursday.
