• “My promise to you and Barack tonight”

    Vice President Joe Biden sent this note ahead of tonight’s vice presidential debate:

    I told Barack I have one mission tonight: tell the truth and stand up for what we believe in. Our side is always going to win when we do that.

    But take a look at what we're up against this week:

    • It's one of the last four weeks we have remaining.

    • This week alone, the other side is spending nearly $37 million on Mitt Romney's behalf in eight battleground states.

    • The resources we have in the bank at midnight tomorrow will determine how big we can go for our final push.

    It's urgent that everyone dig deep—and fast. That means you.

    I can't predict if Paul Ryan will follow Mitt Romney's lead tonight, hiding and flat-out denying their unpopular ideas, or if he'll come prepared to have a real debate about where this country should go.

    Trust me, I'm ready for anything, but I can't do this alone. Your donation will put us in the strongest position possible tomorrow, ahead of a major budget-decisions deadline.

    Please make a donation today.

    Thanks for your support tonight.

    Joe
