Obama for America
8:39 p.m. ET
Join the volunteer training in Cambridge



In an election as close as this one, every call made and every door knocked makes a difference.

That's why this Thursday, we're holding trainings across Massachusetts -- to make sure our organizing is as effective as possible, especially as we work with our neighbors in New Hampshire to talk to every last potential supporter to ensure President Obama wins the Granite State this fall.

These trainings will help us maximize our scarcest resource: time.

Come out to the training in Boston and learn how to bring your organizing to the next level.

Here are the details:

What: Volunteer training in Boston

Where: 77 Summer St. 10th floor Boston, MA 02110

When: Thursday, September 27th 7:00 pm

Trainings like the one on Thursday help us act as better advocates for the President and the progress we seek. After just a few hours together, we'll transform from lone volunteers into organizers and leaders.

When it's all over, you'll have smarter conversations and better phone banks, and be prepared to talk to New Hampshire voters about what's at stake in this election. You'll also meet some great people from your area who are just as dedicated to electing Democrats as you are.

Don't worry if you don't have much experience with organizing -- this training is meant for volunteers new and old.

If you care about this election and winning New Hampshire, and want to find out how to truly make an impact -- this is your answer.

Come out and join the team in Boston for a few hours this Thursday:

Trust me, this is happening



I know what you're probably thinking -- it's another monthly fundraising deadline, so of course there's another email from Julianna Smoot in my inbox.

But guess what? There are only 40 days left until Election Day, so a. you won't be hearing from me much longer, and b. you're running out of time to make your mark on President Obama's last campaign.

Seriously, this is your chance to help out when it matters most: Chip in $X or more before Sunday's FEC deadline:

[url]

Here's why this deadline is so huge: Your donation goes much further right now than later on, when it becomes more expensive to put your money to good use.

If we wait any longer to add organizers on the ground in key battleground states, we'll run out of time to recruit and train those extra volunteers we need for the final get-out-the-vote push. And that means it'll be harder to knock on those last few doors or make those last few phone calls that could be the difference.

Don't wake up on November 7th wishing you had done more!

Make a grassroots donation before the last quarterly fundraising deadline of President Obama's last campaign:

Thanks -- you're great.

There just aren't too many people who know exactly what this job is like.

President Clinton is one of the few, and he's been a great friend and ally of mine.

He and I will be campaigning together in California next week -- want to join us?

Chip in $X or whatever you can, and you'll be automatically entered to meet us next week:

Not only is Bill Clinton one of the smartest people I've met, he also has the rare ability to take complex issues and make them easy to understand. We all saw that on full display at the convention a few weeks ago.

He's an important part of our team -- and so are you. So join us on the campaign trail.

I want to thank you for all you're doing for this campaign.

If we get to continue this work, it's going to be because of you.

Next week I'm meeting up with President Clinton on the campaign trail, and we both want to thank you in person.

Donate $X or whatever you can today to be automatically entered to fly out to join us:

[url]

This Sunday is the biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far.

There's no billionaire donor or lobbyist waiting around to write a $X million check.

How you respond right now determines if we move into the final stretch of this election with the resources we need, ready to close this out, or if we're struggling to keep up with the other side.

And that's the way it's been from the beginning.

If we had listened to the pundits and the critics and the powers that be inside Washington whenever they tried to stand in our way, we would have given up a long time ago.

Let's finish September stronger than we've ever been. Donate $X or whatever you can today:

[url]

Barack

P.S. -- If there's one person who knows how hard we need to fight in these final weeks, it's President Clinton. I'm grateful he'll be joining me on the trail. You should be there, too:

[name] think of it this way:

--

We have the momentum. We have the message. We DON'T have the money.

The Super PACs funding the Tea Party Republicans' campaigns don't have that problem. They've got hundreds of millions of dollars, and they're using it to attack President Obama and our candidates with vicious and misleading ads on Medicare, healthcare and the economy.

If we don't close the spending gap with the Republican Super PACs right now, we may see our candidates washed out with ads in the final weeks of the campaign.

Sunday is the most important fundraising deadline of the election. Contribute $X right now to win a Democratic majority for President Obama

The tidal wave of attack ads hitting our candidates right now could be devastating to our chances in November. They're saturating the airwaves from California to New York, and threaten to swamp our candidates' in the final run up to Election Day.

Democrats maintain slim leads in many competitive districts, but they've got to have the money to avoid being drowned out in these final weeks of the campaign.

Contribute $X right now

Let's win this.

it wasn't a bluff



We just got word that Rove's Crossroads GPS group is going up TODAY with ads to save Boehner's Tea Party Republican House.

If Boehner can hold on to his Tea Party majority -- even by one seat -- it could be enough to sink President Obama's entire second term agenda.

We're not going to match the Republicans dollar-for-dollar -- but if we don't hit this $X.6 million grassroots goal by this Sunday's FEC deadline, we won't be able to fund Democratic campaigns in too-close-to-call races.

48 HOURS LEFT: Will you donate $X or more right now to back up our Democratic candidates and fight Republican Super PAC attacks?

We cannot emphasize this enough, this is the most important deadline of the 2012 elections. What we raise in the next 48 hours will determine how hard we can fight in the final days of this campaign. Please donate $X or whatever you can today: [url]

BREAKING: $X.3 Million Republican Ad Blitz --

The country's largest corporate special interest group just dropped $X.3 million to defeat our Democratic candidates in too-close-to-call races.

There's no doubt: if we want to win the House, we have to raise $X.3 million more by Sunday's FEC deadline to rebut the coming flood of Super PAC attacks.

Help us respond right now: Donate $X or more before the FEC deadline and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar

Most of these ads will air in the next week.

Don't let them off the hook!

If Boehner can hold on to his Tea Party majority -- even by one seat -- they will use every trick in the book to try and torpedo President Obama's agenda.

So say it with me, "Leave No Republican Behind!" My friends at the DCCC are going after the 25 Republican seats that Democrats need to win the House -- but first, they've got to raise this final $X.3 million before the FEC deadline.

Will you donate $X or whatever you can to win a Democratic House for President Obama?

The latest polls show Democrats lead the race for Congress by a few points, but it's going to be close. Too close to give up an inch to the Republicans.

we didn't expect this!!!





WOW! Boehner sure didn't bargain for this:

Just one week after Republican House members kicked in $X.2 million to save Boehner's teetering majority, we're on the verge of surpassing them.

As of this morning, we're less than $X away from overtaking their big cash dump -- all in grassroots donations!

FW: [name] [name]., if we win…

I'm putting everything I have into this campaign. You understand why.

The next 39 days will affect our lives for the next four years.

On Election Night, either we'll win the chance to keep moving our country forward. Or, we'll lose that chance, and everything we've already accomplished together. It all depends on the next 39 days—and you.

The deadline we face in 72 hours marks the final leg of this race. Control of the Senate depends on what we raise right now. Can you give $X before midnight Sunday to help Democrats in Senate races across the country?

We know the path we want to take. We just don't know if we have enough to get there.

This is it. 39 days left. Let's give it everything we've got:

As Mitt sinks in the polls, Karl Rove is expected to shift his money into a Republican Senate takeover. And we now believe one single seat could cost us the Senate majority. Deadline: 72 hours. All gifts matched 3-to-1. Contribute.

As Mitt sinks in the polls, Karl Rove is expected to shift his money into a Republican Senate takeover. And we now believe one single seat could cost us the Senate majority.

We need Elizabeth Warren to win in Massachusetts, Claire McCaskill to defeat Todd “legitimate rape” Akin in Missouri, and Tammy Baldwin to win in Wisconsin. And each race is polling within the margin of error.

The final quarterly FEC deadline hits in 72 hours—time is running out. Can you give $X immediately? The risk is so great that for the next 72 hours ONLY, a group of Democratic Senators will match your gift 3-to-1.

We watched as House Republicans voted to defund Planned Parenthood. We saw them vote to repeal Obamacare not once, not twice, but 33 times! If the Senate falls into Republican hands too, there will be nothing stopping them from enacting their extreme agenda.

Not "ladylike"??



It's not hyperbole to suggest that this is the starkest choice for president that this country has had in my lifetime.

Barack and I have a fundamentally different vision and profoundly different values than our opponents do on everything from Medicare to how to balance the federal budget to a woman's right to make her own health care decisions.

That's why it's absolutely critical that we have the resources we need over these final weeks to win tight races across the country.

Chip in $X or more today -- before our big quarterly fundraising deadline.

If you think your donation doesn't matter, just look at what congressional Republicans have done over the past four years. They've dug in their heels to oppose the President and his agenda every chance they've gotten -- and a lot of their disagreements aren't based on the facts or their principles or what the American people need. They're just trying to shut him down.

I think if President Obama said he liked mustard on his hot dogs, you'd hear a lot of the other guys start talking about how pro-ketchup they are.

That's not leadership, and it's why this election -- and what you do today -- is so important. Make a donation of $X or more now:

Want to know what really frightens me?

It frightens me that Mitt Romney is the leader of the Republican Party -- and there are hundreds of Republican candidates across the country who think just like him. And they could win on November 6th. If they do, boy, is our country in trouble.

Just look at what Republicans in the House have tried to do in this last legislative session alone: They voted to defund Planned Parenthood and voted 33 times to repeal Obamacare -- yet never voted once for the President's jobs bill to help put Americans back to work. It is never acceptable -- never -- to put politics before people.

Our most important fundraising deadline yet is on Sunday -- and we have just a little over a month left to do everything we can to make sure that President Obama and Democrats across the country win on Election Day.

Seriously -- I hope you feel the urgency I do. We can't let these Republicans control the White House and Congress for the next four years.

Todd Akin -- the man who offended just about everyone when he made the dead wrong claim that there is a medical difference between "legitimate rape" and other instances of rape -- was just officially locked in as the GOP opponent for Claire McCaskill's Missouri Senate seat.

Today, here's what he had to say about the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Missouri, after he observed that she seemed "aggressive" in Friday's debate:

" In her 2006 campaign, McCaskill had a confidence and was very much more sort of ladylike ."

If you've heard enough, chip in $X to stop him. The critical September fundraising deadline is when Democrats will decide if we have the resources to really take on candidates like this one -- so it's up to you, right now.

Mr. Akin thinks Missouri's Senator, who serves on the Senate Committee on Armed Services, Committee on Commerce, Committee on Science and Transportation, Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and Special Committee on Aging, is not "ladylike" because she wasn't sweet to him in their debate.

"She came out swinging," Akin said, "and I think that's because she was threatened."

You're in a position to stop this man from holding office in our nation's Senate and to stop him from authoring our laws. You're in a position to stand with Senator McCaskill as she enters the fight of her life. The September FEC fundraising deadline is in just a few days, and that's when we're going to have to make calls about how hard Democrats can fight against extreme GOP candidates like this.

Donate $X or more to help Democrats shut this guy down and take on the cynical, win-at-any-cost backers funding him:

Todd Akin's crossed the line again and again, and we're the ones who are going to tell him that he can't take his ignorance, his fanaticism, and anything else he has to say about what's ladylike and what's not to our Senate floor.

Thanks for everything you do,

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

The GOP has just pulled a particularly craven 180.

First, they condemned Rep. Todd Akin for his incredibly offensive comments toward women and tried to force him from the Senate race in Missouri.

That failed, so now they're backing him again.

What happened to the moral outrage following Rep. Akin's comments on "legitimate rape"? Clearly, it was nothing more than pandering.

In fact, Akin's radical view on abortion is even codified in the Republican Party platform: ban it even in cases of rape or incest.

This is a pretty clear example of the kind of politics and candidates we're up against. The stakes are high. Donate $X or more today to help Democrats and defeat Republicans like Todd Akin:

There is a critical fundraising deadline coming up on Sunday -- and we know that, like us, the other side will be making decisions for the final month of this election based on how much they raise in the next few days.

It's up to each one of us to do everything we can to stop Republicans across the country like Todd Akin from winning on Election Day.

We know that the policies that come from Republican establishment-backed candidates -- even ones who haven't said stupid, offensive things -- would be disastrous for women.

Fight back before our major fundraising deadline by chipping in $X or more today:

P.S. -- If you're not already fired up, here's what Akin said today about his opponent Sen. Claire McCaskill, referring to her strong performance in Friday's debate: "She had a confidence and was very much more sort of ladylike in 2006 ." Let's win this:
