Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has a solution for those who get frustrated during Thursday’s Republican presidential debate: donate to his campaign.

Sanders’ presidential campaign has broken fundraising records, racking up high numbers of donors contributing under $25. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sanders has seen an increase in donations amid recent attacks from his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Sanders’ focus on the GOP debates as a tool for garnering support is not new. The Vermont senator has live-tweeted several debates so far, slamming Republicans for their arguments against climate change, Planned Parenthood and more.
