Romney-Ryan Friend,

I know from experience what a tough competitor Mitt Romney is. I was impressed by his tenacity and resolve during the first presidential debate.

I know he's ready to bring the same conviction to the October 16th debate, and I'm ready to see him confront President Obama on his administration's dismal foreign policy record. I'm anticipating another victory for the Republican team.

This contest is a chance for one lucky supporter to watch the October 16th debate with Mitt's team.

Donate $X or more now to be automatically entered for a chance to watch with Team Romney-Ryan.

The last debate struck a powerful blow against President Obama and his liberal allies imagine what could happen next?

This one matters:

--



According to the Houston Chronicle, Republicans have launched an "aerial bombardment" on Texas Democratic candidate Pete Gallego.

That's right. An aerial bombardment.

That's what Boehner Cantor, and their Super PAC buddies are capable of when they see one of their Tea Party Congressman in danger of losing their seats.

We can fight their lies and win this race -- but first, Pete needs our help to get on the air and set the record straight. Will you help him raise $X before Monday's ad buy deadline?

Donate $X or more right now to help Pete fight back against the Republican aerial bombardment.

The stakes are high in this race: Boehner and Cantor know they could lose control of the House if they lose this seat in the heart of Texas.

But first things first - we have to help Pete fight back against all these incoming attacks.

Help Pete set the record straight.

holy smokes!

--



Since the Biden-Ryan debate, we've received nearly 20,000 donations to defeat the Tea Party House!

Just think about it: no more Paul Ryan budgets to end Medicare. No more government shutdowns over Planned Parenthood. An end to Speaker Boehner's reckless obstruction of President Obama's agenda.

Right now, we're at 18,400 donations -- will you put us over the top?

Donate $X or more to elect Democratic majority for President Obama.

From today's Washington Post: "Romney tries to bury Obama in ads"

The Washington Post just reported Romney's final stretch strategy: double – or in some cases triple – spending in swing states such as Florida, Ohio, Nevada and Virginia. And last week, the GOP already outspent us by 50%.

POLLING UPDATE - 10/13 State Poll Advantage Florida Obama 48, Romney 47 Obama +1 Nevada Obama 47, Romney 45 Obama +2 Ohio Obama 48, Romney 47 Obama +1 Virginia Obama 47, Romney 49 Romney +2 We have a strategy to prevent them from buying this election, but we need your urgent help.

If we double our own spending in deadlocked battlegrounds, we can fight off Romney's Rove-funded barrage of ads. But we need 2,021 donors this weekend to make it happen.

Will you rush $X or more immediately? If we have your urgent support, we will take on Romney's billionaire financiers and win this election.

If we don't, we could let these four battlegrounds, President Obama, and a Democratic Senate run out of our reach.

Please give $X or more by midnight Sunday » [url]

Thanks for your support, Guy Cecil
