Obama for America
8:44 a.m. ET
The end?



It's August 23rd. And 75 days from now, I'll either be looking at another four years in the White House -- or the end of this opportunity.

I know what's at stake for the parents worrying about health care, the kids who need help to go to college, and the seniors who want a secure retirement.

But we're getting outspent by wide margins in critical battleground states -- and what we do about that today could be the difference between winning and losing on November 6th.

So as we near one of the last fundraising deadlines of this campaign, I'm asking you to pitch in $X or whatever you can, right now:

I'm looking forward to that moment when the confetti drops.

If you've ever stood on the floor of the convention, you know what I'm talking about. When a united Republican party comes together to choose their nominee -- it's an inspiring and exciting moment.

This contest is your chance to be there when it all happens.
