I'm asking for your help, because I have some bad news: We just found out Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.
The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.
We know what that means—more and more misleading, negative ads trashing the President, you, me, and everything we've accomplished together over the past four years.
And we know what we have to do. Close the gap—chip in right now.
After a year and a half of building and fighting and getting ready for Election Day, we cannot allow ourselves to be outdone at the very end.
On November 7th, when this campaign is behind us, you'll be glad you stepped up now.
