We're being seriously outraised, and there's not much time left.
As of last week, Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $45 million more to spend than we do.
That puts us at an alarming disadvantage in a close race with just 9 days to go. Please help close the gap today.
We have more than 4 million people who own a piece of this campaign, and the other side wants to straight-up buy this election from under your feet with a few big checks, and flood the airwaves with negative ads that distort the President's record and attack his character outright.
I know it can be aggravating. Believe me. But we have to stay focused.
Look, We knew this onslaught of spending was coming, and that's why we're here day after day asking you to help drive us forward. Now it's a reality.
We need to fight this now, without delay—or we risk losing everything we've built and invested in.
Also, tomorrow is your absolute last chance to get a free trip to Chicago to meet the President, and be there front row for his speech on Election Night. What you do now will decide just how that night goes…
