• I’ll be blunt

    We're about to get hit with an avalanche of negative ads.

    Romney-allied outside groups have already lined up more than $23 million in television spending for this week alone.

    That's been the other side's strategy from the beginning: slamming the airwaves with ads trashing the President and his record.

    I'll be blunt: They are trying to buy this election, and we're the only ones who are standing in their way.

    We've worked too hard to slow down now. We need to bear down these last 29 days, because Governor Romney and his allies aren't going to play fair or take it easy on us. Take it from their own adviser: "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers."

    We need to keep fighting and get the back of the guy who's got ours—will you chip in today?

    Thanks. Let's keep this up.
