I've been getting a ton of questions about the George Clooney contest—what are the odds? Will you pick my mom? Can staff win? (For the last time, the answer’s no.)
Honestly, I really don’t care who wins unless you're talking about Election Day.
But if you’re counting the hours to when the winners are picked, I won’t judge—and congrats if you’re one of them. What I’m counting is how many people step up between now and our midnight FEC deadline. These next few hours are a major test of our organization.
Will you donate $3 or whatever you can to support President Obama before midnight tonight?
The way I see it, this contest is really about more people owning a piece of this campaign. (And, yes, any donation you make today also happens to automatically enter you for a chance to meet President Obama and George Clooney on May 10th in L.A.)
Just a few hours left—thanks for stepping up.
