This deadline matters



You're probably hearing a whole lot about our FEC fundraising deadline tomorrow. Let me tell you why: Campaigns go into hyper speed after Labor Day in a two-month sprint to November 6th. To prepare for that, we spend August hiring hundreds of organizers in key battleground states -- folks who take a pay cut and give up sleep and social lives to spend every waking moment knocking on doors, registering voters, making calls, and working with supporters like you to make sure we can effectively get out the vote. The work being done on the ground in the last months is going to decide the outcome of this election. And it'll only happen because of you. That's why this deadline at midnight tomorrow matters. Our hiring decisions are based on what our budget looks like on August 1st. Make a donation of $X or more today to support the campaign, and help fund the ground game we need to win:

[url] This political climate is different from 2008 -- this race is stuffed to the brim with super PACs and special-interest groups trying to buy the election with a barrage of negative ads. It's up to us to prove that, even in these circumstances, a candidate can win a race the right way. Your donation today could help hire that extra organizer in a state like Virginia or Florida -- the one who might make the 1,000 calls that ultimately swing this election. Donate $X today to make it happen: [url]

Romney's trip to Israel

Obama - Biden --

Over the weekend, Mitt Romney took a trip to Israel with some of his supporters. Despite his pledge to keep politics at the water's edge, Romney's campaign took every opportunity to continue its blatantly false attacks on the President's steadfast support for the security of the state of Israel.

We refuse to let the Romney campaign distort the President's record. So we compiled a big list of all the false attacks, and put it together with the facts.

Get the truth on the President's record on Israel -- then, if you'd like to be a part of the group that is holding Mitt Romney accountable, join the Truth Team and spread the word.

President Obama's strong record on Israel is undeniable. He has supported the largest aid packages in history and has presided over a dramatic upgrade in U.S. support for Israeli security. Just last week, the President signed legislation strengthening the military relationship between the U.S. and Israel. And earlier today, Israeli Minister of Defense Ehud Barak told CNN that President Obama's administration has done more for Israeli security than anyone prior.

It's up to us to make sure our friends and family know about President Obama's commitment to the Jewish state. Find out what's really going on, and join the Truth Team to fight back:

So



Sometimes politics can seem very small.

But the choice voters face in this election couldn't be bigger.

Over the past two months, we have been outraised by our opponents. They've used that advantage to distort the truth and mislead people, over and over, on TV and the radio in battleground states.

Tonight is one of the most critical fundraising deadlines we'll face.

If we win this election, it will be because of what you did in moments like this to close the gap.

Please make a donation of $X or more right now:

Thank you.

I see those attack ads



I see the same ads attacking Barack that you do. We both know they're empty and dishonest.

So instead of getting frustrated, I get fired up. I want everyone to know about the kind of leader Barack really is.

You see, I've seen up close what being president looks like. The decisions that come across Barack's desk are never the easy ones. They're problems with only difficult solutions -- judgment calls where there's no margin for error.

And I can tell you exactly who he's thinking about when he's making these decisions: you.

We've got an important fundraising deadline tonight at midnight. We won't have too many more of these before Election Day, so what we do right now matters.

Please pitch in $X or whatever you can -- and let's win:

Don't do this for Barack

Obama for America

When Barack says this election isn't about him, he means it.

For him, this is about making sure he leaves behind a better world for Sasha and Malia -- and all of our kids.

I'm sure there's something motivating you just as much in this election -- and it's why you're giving everything you've got in this campaign.

So as we face down tonight's fundraising deadline, I'm asking you:

Don't do this for Barack. Do it for you. Do it for your kids and grandkids, and the future you want for this country.

Please make a donation of $X or more before midnight your time:

I'm asking you



I'm always amazed by how Barack balances his responsibilities as president, a husband, and a dad.

But sometimes even he needs a little help. And this campaign is going to take all of us pitching in.

All of the things we've poured our hearts into from passing health care reform to fighting for an economy that works for everyone are on the line.

I know I don't want to wake up on November 7th wondering if I could have done more. So I'm doing everything I can between now and Election Day to make sure we can keep moving this country forward for four more years.

We've only got a few more hours before an important fundraising deadline. Please support this campaign by giving $X or more today:

badmouthing!



President Obama needs to know that we've got his back.

He's certainly not getting any help from these Tea Party Republicans. They'd rather badmouth the President than work with him to strengthen the middle class or protect health care for seniors.

We're just hours away from the last Federal Election Commission fundraising deadline before the Republican National Convention, so you know the whole world will be watching to see how strong our campaign is.

MIDNIGHT DEADLINE: Contribute $X or whatever you can to help win a Democratic majority for President Obama -- your gift will be triple-matched

Thank you for standing up and fighting back.

Your contribution will help the DCCC win back the Democratic majority and break the Republican gridlock that's undermined President Obama and blocked Democrats from repairing the damage caused by the failed Republican policies of the past.

There's so much we still need to do to get America back on track and our economy growing again. If we want to create good middle class jobs, strengthen Social Security and Medicare and make sure the wealthy are paying their fare share, it's going to take all of us working together to get it done.

-----------------Original Message-----------------

From: Al Gore Subject: disaster

The last thing we want is the Republican Party -- a party that's been hijacked by an extremist fringe -- to win the White House and tighten its grip on Congress.

That would spell disaster for our economy and our environment.

That's why I'm helping the DCCC raise the $X million they need to have on hand by tomorrow's midnight fundraising deadline. This deadline is so important that a group of Democrats have agreed to match your contribution 2-to-1, tripling your impact.

24 HOURS TO GO: Donate $X or more to elect a strong Democratic majority for President Obama [url]

Karl Rove and the ultra-conservative Koch brothers are pouring millions of dollars into this campaign. Democrats are depending on the individual support we get from people like you.

I am fully committed to doing everything I can to make sure we win a Democratic Majority to partner with President Obama. I hope I can count on you. Please join me.

Sugar daddy

URGENT: FEC DEADLINE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT Deadline: Midnight. Stand with President Obama. Contribute.

If you have been waiting in the hopes that your help would not be needed to re-elect President Obama and a Democratic Senate -- THE WAIT MUST END.

With 98 days to go, Mitt Romney holds a closed-door fundraiser in Jerusalem with Las Vegas casino magnate and super PAC sugar daddy, Sheldon Adelson. The take for Romney from his "fact-finding" fundraiser?

One million dollars.

If you're ready to join in the fight, CLICK HERE and contribute $X BEFORE MIDNIGHT and you will be part of a nationwide effort to save our nation from the Tea Party and Mitt Romney.

Now Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson are pouring it on to give Mitch McConnell and the Republicans control of the Senate. It's enough to keep you up at night.

The Presidential race is a one-point see-saw in the polls. The fate of our Democratic Senate hangs in the balance of nine cliffhangers where our candidates have weathered millions of dollars in negative ads. I'm tossing and turning thinking about the sleaze they are pouring on.

Want to know how this story will end in November?

First, let me ask you a question: Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and help us fight before this critical FEC deadline at midnight?

Go to [url] right now.

Now are you ready to come off the sidelines and show Sheldon and company that they can't buy the White House and the Senate?

Now do you realize how much is at stake when it comes to health care; fair taxes for working families; our right to privacy and the future of the Supreme Court?

If you're ready.

Only if you're ready to join in the fight, contribute $X and you will be part of a nationwide effort to save our nation from the Tea Party and Mitt Romney.

You won't miss it. But, if Mitt and the Millionaires have their way, we are all going to miss an opportunity to keep America moving forward.

Act now! Send $X so I can get a good night's sleep.

Deadline: Midnight tonight. Contribute.

You see the latest polls? Mitt and the Republicans are out-raising us, attacking us, and – voila – they've almost got this thing tied up.

Stop looking around for the cavalry – you're it. 99 percent of the DSCC's contributions come from people like you – and we've got the biggest fundraising deadline of the whole dang campaign so far coming up at midnight tonight.

So get on it – and help us raise the last $X we need to fight back with a contribution of $X. That FEC deadline is only a few hours away.

I don't mean to be rude or anything, but I want President Obama and Senate Democrats to win, and if that means a little tough love, so be it.

We've been getting beat up for months. Quit letting them get away with it. Go to [url] and let's get the momentum back on our side.

I'm here to tell you, really quickly, about why tonight's fundraising deadline matters.

The past couple of months, our president has been vastly outraised by Republicans. Democrats in races across the country are up against the same thing, with outside groups pouring millions in to drag us down.

If we don't stop this trend, and start closing the gap, 2012 could go down as the year that powerful special interests learned that elections can have a price tag.

I'm not willing to accept that -- and I hope you aren't either.

I promise this will be the last email you get from me for a while.

Will you help close that fundraising gap?

Democrats

In 2010, my home state of Florida elected right-wing Republican Rick Scott as our governor after he outspent his Democratic opponent by $X million -- a staggering figure for a state election.

Governor Scott has gone on to slash education funding, make it more difficult for women to control their own health decisions, and tell millions of Floridians that they're out of luck if they need quality health care coverage. It's why only 31 percent of my fellow Floridians approve of the job he's doing.

Right now, President Obama and Democrats are being outraised by Mitt Romney and the Republicans. And we're going to be outspent. Take it from me, and millions of other Floridians who have learned this the hard way -- a bad Republican candidate can overwhelm a good Democratic candidate if they have enough of a fundraising advantage. And the real-life consequences are disastrous.

Donate $X or whatever you can before our critical fundraising deadline tonight, and help make sure that doesn't happen nationally:

J --

Days like today are part of what makes this job so nerve-wracking. How much we raise before the deadline at midnight tonight determines whether Democrats across the board will get the resources they need to win in November.

When we get the final total for how much we raised this month, we'll have some tough decisions to make -- and those decisions will be even tougher if we come up short.

I know that these emails I send might seem like a little much -- but they're important. The money we raise helps pay for our top-notch grassroots organization across the country to lay the groundwork to win in November.

We need your help to ensure that we can continue to operate at the level we know it takes to win.

Donate $X or more before the critical FEC deadline at midnight tonight:

The Democratic Party -----------------------

We're down into the double digits: Just 98 days before the election. Two months till the first presidential debate. Five weeks until the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.

And we're also just a few hours before our midnight fundraising deadline tonight:

Strap in, people, we're kicking into high gear.

After tonight, we have just three short months left to mobilize the largest grassroots organization in the history of American politics. And what we do tonight will play a huge role in deciding how successful we'll be.

Are you ready? Donate $X or more to help Democrats before midnight tonight:

Tonight's deadline will be the most critical so far. It's all going to come down to these last few months, and the budget decisions we make in August could make or break campaigns across the map.

Can you chip in $X or more before midnight?

I'm gnawing through my pen caps over here. Watching the numbers come in is not exactly a stress-free task, and that's because of what's on the line.

It's not just who will be in the White House for the next four years or whether we'll keep a Democratic majority in the Senate. It's what our country will look like for years to come: if our kids will have access to quality health care, education, and the careers they dream of, or if they'll grow up in a country whose leaders shrug and say "you're on your own."

It's in your hands. And I want to give those Democrats and the President the resources they need to get this done. Please give before the crucial midnight deadline:

And tomorrow: new pens.

Democrats

It's deadline day. We're down to the last few hours before we tally up our numbers -- and make some tough calls about what Democrats can do in August. This could be our most important deadline yet.If you can, please support Democrats across the country with an urgent donation of $X or more before midnight tonight.

We're getting drastically outspent in this election, and people keep asking me how we can step it up. But the reality is, we're playing a different game -- relying on people chipping in a little bit whenever they can -- and we need to do more with less. It's my job to pinch the pennies and make sure we're putting our resources where they'll do the most. That's a tight budget. And that's why I'm emailing you. I don't think anyone makes a donation just because they're happy to hear from me again over email.

Everyone who supports Democrats is stepping up for a reason. Maybe it's because you believe in winning elections the right way, building something one person at a time, and working together toward a better future. Or because you don't want to see so much hard-fought progress erased, or a return to policies of the past that sent the country into a ditch, or maybe you're just fired up to re-elect this President and win a Democratic majority in both houses of Congress.Think about your reason for supporting Democrats, and please give $X or more today:[url]

I couldn't be prouder of what we've done together. Let's make sure we don't slip in the last few months.

Thanks,

Hildy
