This is bad:

Obama - Biden

We just found out how much more money Mitt Romney and the Republicans have in the bank: $X million.

I hope that sounds like a lot to you, because it is. And it doesn't even include outside groups.

That is a massive advantage to have with such a short time left. We have the power to decide whether that will be the determining factor in this election but only if everyone gets on board and does their part.

Help close that cash-on-hand gap so our voices don't get drowned out in a tidal wave of negative ads chip in $X or more now.

I know this campaign has asked a lot of you. That's why it's so important that you step up now, when this race is so close.

A $X million disadvantage means we could have to fight back against an estimated 780 30-second ads in a battleground state like Colorado. With only 11 days left, that's a devastating prospect.

Thanks to more than 4 million other grassroots donors, we're close, but we really need to close this gap and close it immediately.

So, please don't wait any longer. Donate $X or more right now to keep this campaign strong straight up until the last vote is cast on November 6th:

Obama - Biden

When folks talk about this election decades from now, what will you say?

How about: "I was there. And I was a part of it."

This election will come down to a few key votes in a few key battleground states. That's why passionate Californians are teaming up for one of our last trips to Nevada.

Will you step up and join us in Nevada?

While Team Nevada is hitting the streets and working their very hardest even as you read this , they could sure use some fired-up Californians on the ground -- connecting with folks, getting out the vote, and helping to deliver a win to President Obama and other Democrats.

That's where we come in. We'll be working hard, making new friends, and having some great conversations about the President's record and what's at stake for this country.

We need you in this last stretch to put Nevada over the top, and I'd like to personally invite you to make a trip to Las Vegas or Reno during the all-important "get out the vote" phase, starting this weekend and running through Election Day on November 6th.

Sign up today and a member of our team will be in touch directly:

Final statement

Our team is going through supporter records today, and we saw you haven't yet made an online contribution I've copied and pasted your record below :

Supporter record: [id] Name: Kristina 2012 online support: pending Suggested support: $X

You are running out of time to impact this election. Because of Karl Rove's largest ad campaign ever, Republicans are rising in the polls: 10 Senate races are now tossups, and Republicans only need to win four seats to take the majority.

We can turn this around and prevent Rove from buying the Senate majority for the Republicans, but we must match him dollar-for-dollar.

Can you urgently give $X before midnight tomorrow? We need 8,198 donations in the next 36 hours. We'll immediately send it to deadlocked Senate battlegrounds like Virginia and Ohio.

There are just 10 days until the election, and look at these deadlocked polls: Democrats are up two in Massachusetts, up one in Virginia, and down one in Wisconsin.

We must increase our spending in deadlocked battlegrounds by midnight Sunday to win. Please give $X in the next 36 hours: [url]

Thanks so much, Jason Rosenbaum DSCC Online Communications Director

Politico Headline: Romney ad bomb here

Politico reports that the Republicans' strategy has been "saving up cash for a final strike" to win the White House and Senate in the final 10 days.

Polls show that this final "barrage of ads" could allow them to pull ahead: Nationally, Obama is down three. And he's tied in Colorado, and only up two in Ohio.

We can turn this around with our emergency "Close the Gap" Fund, and immediately increase spending in White House and Senate battlegrounds. We need 9,847 urgent Democratic donations in the next 36 hours to fight this off!

Can you immediately contribute $X to the "Close the Gap" Fund? We'll urgently send funds to key White House and Senate states like Ohio and Virginia. Until the deadline we'll match your gift 3-to-1! Your $X gift will be worth $X.

The election is in just 10 days. And Romney's onslaught of ads is already moving the White House and Senate in his direction.

Please make a $X contribution to the "Close the Gap" Fund in the next 36 hours. We'll put it to work in battlegrounds immediately: [url]

They seriously outraised us

J --

We got some alarming news: The latest FEC report shows that Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $X million more to spend than we do.

The only thing that could make this worse is if we don't do anything about it.

If we're going to pull out a win, we need to act immediately to close this fundraising gap. Make a donation of $X or more now.

This is a problematic fundraising gap with just 10 days to go -- and if it worries you, it should.

It translates into an onslaught of misleading attack ads targeting President Obama and other Democrats in tight races across the country.

With more resources, we can fight back on the ground and on the air.

But that's up to you. I'm proud of how we've pulled together and kept pace with the other side -- we can't let it all be taken away in the last few days of this election. There is too much on the line.

Help close this fundraising gap today and put President Obama and Democrats in a position to win:

We've got a better ground game than Romney and the Republicans. We're getting more voters to the polls in states where they can vote early, and we're ramping up for a massive get-out-the-vote operation on November 6th.

But with more resources, there's always more we can do -- buy more clipboards, rent more vans to drive voters to the polls, or hire more organizers to knock on as many doors as possible to combat all of the negative advertising the Republicans will be rolling out over the next few days.

Look -- Barack and I need you.

We recently found out that, as we head into the final push, Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $X million more in the bank than we do.

That's a problem, folks. In a race that's as close as they come -- and with Election Day almost here -- we're not willing to lose this in the end.

The good news is we've got you. And if you chip in today, we can close that gap more quickly than you think.

Please help us out with a donation of $X or more today:

When you do, you'll be automatically entered to come out to Chicago for Election Night -- you and a guest will meet Barack and watch his speech from right up front.

Don't pass this one up, especially when your support is so critical.

Thanks,

Joe
