Obama for America
8:15 p.m. ET
Holy moly!!!



CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??

This deadline at midnight tonight marks the end of THE. LAST. FUNDRAISING. QUARTER. EVER. !!!

Well, for President Obama at least. I'm guessing the FEC will keep doing their thing.

And you know what? Maybe it's the sleep deprivation talking, but I'm feeling pretty nostalgic. We are getting SO CLOSE to Election Day -- and these moments always reveal just how amazing you all are.

Proof: We're already at 9,950,540 grassroots donations since January alone. We could actually hit 10 million before midnight. Will you chip in $X right now -- and strengthen this campaign when it matters most?

Holy moly. What a ride. Thanks for coming along.

Thank you

I have two incredibly exciting items to report today. First, thanks to your grassroots support, we just had our strongest month ever. I can't thank you enough for being a part of this.

But more importantly, your support is working to win races. A Talking Points Memo analysis of polling data released this morning shows Democratic Senate candidates have significantly moved the needle in the past 30 days: Recent Surge in Senate Races for Democrats

Make no mistake. You're responsible for this positive momentum. Together, we're fighting every day to combat the millions of Rove and Koch dollars flooding the airwaves.

And while we still have a 50/50 chance of keeping the Senate in Democratic hands, polls are trending in our direction thanks to you.

This is a time for excitement, but it's not a time to rest. There are 35 days left—a lifetime in politics. So let's continue to buckle down, get to work, and win this.
