Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign broke its record for the most money raised in a single hour during the first debate with President Donald Trump on Tuesday, CBS News reports.

Biden’s communications director and deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, told reporters following the debate that the candidate raised $3.8 million just between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., which was the second hour of the debate. This not only set a new record for the campaign, it also set a record for ActBlue, the largest online platform for Democrat fundraising, with almost $8 million raised on the site between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Fellow deputy campaign manager Rufus Gifford added on Twitter: “Never before in my 16+ year political career have I received more calls/texts/emails from people wanting to give money to the campaign than I have in the last 12 hours.”

Bedingfield also said that despite the chaotic first debate, Biden has no intention of backing away from the remaining two.

"I think there is an open question here, based on what we saw from Donald Trump tonight, is he going to try to bully actual voters? Is he going to insult his way through the next debate?" she added. "You know, Joe Biden's going to show up. Donald Trump hasn't shown up for the American people once, since he became president. And we'll see if he decides to show up in Miami next month." 

The second presidential debate is set to take place on October 15, one week after the vice presidential debate on October 7.
