Obama for America
4:33 a.m. ET
Good morning



If President Obama gets four more years to finish the job, it will be because of what you did at moments like this.

When you're running for re-election, every day in the final stretch is critical.

But President Obama is facing something I never did: a strategic, coordinated effort to take him down, one battleground state at a time, funded by outside groups with virtually unlimited money.

The biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far is in a few days.

Donate to support the campaign today -- you'll be automatically entered to fly out to meet President Obama and me on the trail next week.

Now, the Republican argument is: "We left a huge mess. The President hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in."

That just doesn't add up, and we both know it.

If we want President Obama to win this election, we can't take one day or one dollar for granted.

Donate $X or whatever you can before the big fundraising deadline, and you'll automatically be entered to join us on the trail next week:

[url]

Thanks, and maybe I'll see you soon.

Bill Clinton

P.S. -- In the end, an election comes down to simple arithmetic -- but the numbers will only be on our side on Election Night if we all chip in and do our part.

I hope you'll pay attention, facing a big FEC fundraising deadline -- after this, there's only one more before Election Day.

Here's why that matters: Your donation will go further now than it will next week. That's because it will immediately be put to use -- if your $X for example goes toward hiring an organizer in Akron, Ohio, she'll have more time to do her job and reach more voters. And that's how elections are won.

I hope you'll donate $X or more before the September fundraising deadline:

Thanks for everything you do.

They want to cut taxes for high-income Americans while the middle class shoulders the burden.

They want to let Wall Street write its own rules again, and remove the financial regulations President Obama has put in place to prevent another crash.

They want to cut the budget in a radical way, decimating programs that help the middle class, poor children, and seniors, and those in science and technology that will create the good jobs of the future.

They want to turn Medicare into a risky voucher program that could actually raise costs for seniors by as much as $X per year.

This week, both campaigns -- Mitt Romney's and President Obama's -- face the biggest fundraising deadline yet.

If we want President Obama in that White House for another four years, we can't take anything for granted -- especially critical moments like this.

Donate $X or whatever you can today, and let's bring this home for President Obama. When you do, you'll automatically be entered to join the President and me on the campaign trail next week in California:

Voters are already casting their ballots early in some states, and the first debate is next week.

In almost no time at all, this race will be over.

One of the very last fundraising deadlines is coming up on Sunday, and the resources we have by then will help decide how this race turns out. Barack can't do this alone -- to win, he needs supporters like you giving it your all.

Donate $X or more before that deadline so we're ready for the final days of this campaign:

[url]

Believe me, every time Barack hears someone tell him he's earned their vote, it makes his day. That doesn't get old. To hear that you're out there, lending your voice and getting others involved, means the world to us both.

The $X you give before the deadline is what makes this campaign possible.

Help grow this campaign in these last weeks, when it matters the most:

This election is in your hands.

Michelle

P.S. -- Any donation before midnight tonight will also automatically enter you to fly out and meet up with Barack and President Clinton on the campaign trail in California

Picture this: One week from now, you could find yourself in California, hanging out with my husband and President Clinton.

All you have to do is chip in $X or whatever you can to help this campaign before midnight tonight, and you'll automatically be entered to fly out and meet Barack and President Clinton on the trail.

As we approach Election Day, the days are getting busier and longer, and everything we're doing -- every phone call, every conversation, and every donation -- becomes so much more important.

In fact, folks in a number of states are already casting their ballots. That means voters are making their final decisions about Barack and how we want to move forward in the next four years.

It's an exciting -- and important -- time to be a part of this campaign.

Plus, I know two presidents who think you should really give it a shot.

All you have to do is make a donation of $X or whatever you can today, and your name will be automatically entered in the running:

For many months, we've been building this campaign -- through door knocks and phone calls and donations.

And now it's all coming down to these final 39 days.

Sunday is the biggest fundraising deadline of this campaign so far. Chip in $X or more to make sure we have the resources we need for this final leg.

Your commitment to building this campaign the right way -- with grassroots donations and old-fashioned hard work -- is how we're going to win this thing.

It won't happen without you.

Obama - Biden Cherrine

If you thought the past year has been crazy, well, hold onto your hats, because you haven't seen chaos until you've experienced October during a presidential election.

This campaign is about to go into overdrive. Field organizers and volunteers will be working insane hours to make sure every person who can vote shows up at the polls. There'll be canvasses based out of coffee shops and volunteers sleeping on strangers' couches in every battleground state.

After this Sunday's critical fundraising deadline well, as my colleague Rufus likes to say, the soup's going to hit the fan.

It's going to be bananas but if and when we win on November 6th, it will have been worth it. Chip in $X or more right now to be a part of it all.

We're already working around the clock to make sure this campaign doesn't get away from us if you're anything like me, you're having dreams about electoral votes and FEC deadlines. This race is too close and the stakes are too high to sit back and take a breather.

If we want to keep up the momentum and finish with a win we need the resources to run this organization.

We're staring down a critical fundraising deadline this Sunday at midnight.

Will you chip in $X or more to help fund the campaign in the last month?

I'm excited. This is when it really gets fun.

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
5:44 a.m. ET
Don't believe me?

Elizabeth Warren or Todd Akin? The majority will come down to one seat, and either our side or theirs will win. Deadline: 48 hours. All gifts matched 3-to-1. Contribute.

Elizabeth Warren or Todd Akin? The majority will come down to one seat, and either our side or theirs will win.

Don't believe me? There are 12 Senate races that are polling in single digits.

Everything's in place to win – all but the money . For that, we need you. Fact is, 99% of our contributions are from grassroots supporters.

You're so vital to this campaign, Democratic Senators will match your gift 3-to-1 . If we don't hit our $X goal before this very last quarterly FEC deadline in only 48 hours , Republicans could take the Senate by one seat .

Donate $X or more immediately – we'll triple-match your donation so we can reach our goal by the FEC deadline midnight Sunday.

Fight to save the Senate right now – today – or we hand the keys to the radical fringe, obliterating everything President Obama has achieved.

We just can't risk the Senate. Losing would mean the end of health care reform, the end of Medicare as we know it, and new juice to the GOP's war on women. So much depends on what you do in the next 48 hours.

Contribute $X here [url]

Three-to-one match for only 48 more hrs. Your $X = $X.

Three-to-one match for only 48 more hrs. Your $X = $X. [url]

----Original message from Sen. Barbara Boxer---- 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.

72 hours left. Please give here and we'll triple match your gift [url]

FW: Al Franken's message



You know I like to talk about math in these emails.

You know I like to talk about math in these emails.   Well, check out this equation: 4 seat Democratic majority + 12 races polling within the margin of error – you = disaster.   See, without you, we lose the Senate – and Republicans get to treat President Obama's agenda like a piñata.    Not that they're literally going to hit it with sticks although you never know with this crowd . They'll just repeal all the stuff we've already passed and block everything else.

That would be awful. So don't let it happen. Click here and make a $X contribution so we can hit our last and most important quarterly fundraising goal of the whole campaign.   Every dollar you give will be matched 3-to-1. Give $X and it'll count for $X. Give $X.33, and it'll count for $X.99. You get the idea.   You're the X factor in this race. Get us over the top now, and we can win this thing. Otherwise…eek.

P.S.: You don't have to do the math yourself to take advantage of the 3-to-1 match. Just click here to give what you can, and we'll handle the multiplying-your-impact-by-3 part.

Little by little



Little by little, Mitt Romney's showing us more of his true self -- and I'll be honest, the thought of a president who flat out said it's not his job to worry about 47 percent of Americans is absolutely terrifying.

We can't have a president who is willing to write off any portion of Americans. That's clear to me. That's clear to you.

Still -- this is a close election, Romney is well funded, and the debates are just around the corner. We can expect the polls to tighten. We can expect an onslaught of negative ads. That's why we need to step up now, before it's too late to fight back.

Right now, we're facing the biggest fundraising deadline we've seen in this election. Donate $X or more today to make sure Democrats have the resources they need to defeat Mitt Romney and Republicans like him.

I spend my days traveling across the country talking to voters of all stripes, and the one thing I always make sure to tell them is that President Obama and Democrats are fighting for them.

They want to make sure that every American, whether they are Republican or Democrat, has access to health care, a quality education, and equal pay. Simply put, they're fighting so everyone has a fair shot.

If that's the kind of President and Congress you want in office after November 6th, then help build this movement by donating $X or more today to help Democrats in the final month of this campaign:

This is one of the last times I'll send you an email about a critical fundraising deadline in this election.

So here it is: We need your help if we're going to defeat Mitt Romney and take back Congress from the Tea Party stranglehold.

Why? Because in six weeks, this thing is going to be over. Win or lose, good or bad, it'll be the end of this election. And your donation is going to make the biggest impact right now.

So I need you to help out, Dan. Can you donate $X or more today?

Millions of Americans are counting on us there's more on the line than ever before.

If we don't do all we can between now and Election Day, there are simply no words to describe the regret we could feel. Mitt Romney and a cohort of extreme Republicans could be at the helm of every policy decision that affects you, me, and all Americans for generations to come.

Can I count you in to help build this movement by chipping in $X or more?

I'm proud to be standing with you,
