Question:



I know we ask you to do a lot, and I cannot tell you how grateful I am for all you do.

Right now, all of the progress we've made together is in danger of being undone. We just found out we're being outraised in this last month by a wide margin.

We've always known this race would be close, and we've always known we'd have to work harder than the other side -- the question is, will you step up and do that right now?

Please chip in $X or more today:

In less than a week, Barack is heading to Chicago for Election Night. Whether he addresses the nation that night as a winner is up to you.

Barack knows it. I know it, too. It's why he wants you there with him.

But tonight at midnight is your last chance to enter.

Donate $X or whatever you can to stop the other side from buying and bullying its way to a win right at the end -- and you'll be automatically entered to meet Barack and get a front-row seat at the Election Night event in Chicago:

[url]

Don't brush this off.

This race could not be closer, and voters in states that will decide the election are seeing ad after ad after ad attacking Barack and me.

Even a great campaign, with the right candidate and the right ideas, can lose to that kind of strategy in the end.

I've seen it happen.

The dangers of being drastically outspent, especially right now at the end of this campaign, are real. Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $X million more in the bank than we do for the final push. Together with outside groups, they're outspending us in nearly every battleground state this week. That's a problem, folks, unless we do something about it.

Please donate $X or whatever you can today, so that if you meet Barack next week, you'll know you did everything you could to help him beat this back:

P.S. -- Don't worry about how you'll get to Chicago and where you'll stay. If you're one of the lucky winners, the campaign will cover airfare and accommodations for you and a guest:

Obama - Biden OK, -- this is literally the last email you're going to get from me about a contest on this campaign.

There's less than a week left until Election Day, and there's a lot of work left in these next few days. But after it's all over, wouldn't it be awesome to fly to Chicago to meet the President and have a front-row seat for his Election Night speech?

This chance expires in just a few hours, at midnight tonight.

Don't wait: Donate $X or whatever you can right now to be automatically entered to come to Chicago for Election Night and get front-row tickets to history.

It's all going to come down to these last few days, and every dollar you donate today will go straight to getting our message out -- and getting voters to the polls -- in battleground states across the country.

You can make sure we don't get beat by the barrage of outside spending -- and you'll be entered for a chance to meet President Obama and be in Chicago for his speech on Election Night. But not if you wait.

Volunteer now to celebrate a win with Barack on Election Night in



When we wake up a week from today, this election will be over.

The race in Nevada is extremely close -- and those six electoral votes could mean the difference between victory and defeat. That's why it's up to Californians like us to pitch in with our counterparts in Nevada and get folks there who support President Obama to the polls.

Watch this video, and then sign up for your VERY LAST CHANCE to join our get-out-the-vote effort in Nevada from November 5th through November 6th:

[url]

Here's the good news: We could very well get to victory in the Silver State if we make this a full sprint to November 6th. We're getting out more early votes and mobilizing more folks than our opponents -- but we can't afford to slow down, not one bit.

At this point, we're either moving forward or we're falling behind -- there is no middle ground.

It has to be today. This is the very last chance to sign up -- and if you do, someone from our travel team will contact you to confirm your plans:

We can do this.

You



Every choice you make determines your future.
  
 But the choice I'm asking you to make in the next 16 hours will affect everyone's future: Do something, or do nothing.
  
 And I believe with all my heart that doing nothing would be a tremendous mistake.
  
 If enough of us do nothing, Mitt Romney could become your President. Republicans could take over the Senate. And you'll watch everything we've fought for dismantled—all while you wish you had done more right now.
  
 That's why you should choose to donate $X before the deadline in just 16 hours. Choose President Obama, choose a Democratic Senate, and choose to give $X because you are willing to fight for this. And for just 16 hours, Democratic Senators will match your gift 3-to-1, tripling the impact of your gift.
  
 I'm counting on you so that we can win this together. Choosing not to fight this one last time could mean that Mitt Romney and the far-right become the leaders of our country.
  
 So don't walk away from this challenge.  Make the right choice today: [url]

You think Karl Rove is panicking yet? Since President Clinton called us to action this morning, we've raised $X to protect the Democratic majority— and we're just 1,491 gifts away from setting a single-day fundraising record. INCREDIBLE!

But take President Clinton seriously: To stop the Republican takeover, we must match Rove dollar-for-dollar BY MIDNIGHT —and immediately wire emergency funds to hotly-contested battlegrounds like Ohio and Wisconsin.

Will you urgently put $X into the “Stop the Takeover Fund” in the next 6 hours? We need 249 contributions every hour until midnight to match Rove.Every gift will be matched 3-to-1! -Patty

Oatmeal



Here are two thought experiments. Indulge me, won't you?

It's the morning after Election Day. 8 a.m. You stumble out of bed. Make some oatmeal. Turn on the TV to find out what happened in that Senate race, the one that was too close to call all night. But you gave an extra $X by clicking on this link.And, lo and behold, your favorite Senate candidate — maybe Elizabeth Warren or Sherrod Brown — pulled it out by a few votes. Oatmeal never tasted so sweet.

But there's another way it could go. 8 a.m. Oatmeal. TV. But in this example, you DIDN'T give an extra gift. And, by a few hundred votes, some Tea Party extremist is now a U.S. Senator-elect — and Republicans have captured the majority. How's that oatmeal taste now?

Look, I know you've just given $X and that's great! Thank you! I hate to ask again so soon, but can you dig deep and give another $X?

You still have time to choose one of those scenarios. But when I say “time,” I don't mean days. I mean minutes. Don't wait for tomorrow. Don't even wait to read the rest of this email. Click here right now and make a contribution — it will be matched three to one, tripling its impact!

You've seen the polls — we're neck and neck in race after race. Moving the numbers just a little bit could mean the difference between victory and defeat — trust me, I've been there.

But with just days to go until the polls close, every minute counts. Your extra contribution won't be funding some far-off future plan - it'll be the money that will be put to use first thing tomorrow. It could be your $X that makes the difference for Tammy Baldwin, keeps Todd Akin or Richard Mourdock out of the Senate, or even saves our majority.

Please make an additional $X contribution to the DSCC right now — it'll be on the air in a battleground state or in the field as part of a get-out-the-vote program by tomorrow morning. And, even better, it will be matched 3-to-1!

If you want to know why I'm standing with the DSCC in the final days of this election, here's why: On November 7, I don't want my oatmeal to taste like regret. I want my oatmeal to taste like victory.

How about you?

Here we go again



Eight years ago, in one of the closest elections in history, you and I learned what happens when we don't have the resources to hit back hard enough and fast enough to crush well-funded Republican lies.

Here we go again — if we don't respond to Karl Rove's historically-large attack campaign with six days left, Democrats could lose the Senate majority by a single seat.

I need you in the next 10 hours: Help me execute the “Stop the Takeover” Plan.

By midnight, we must urgently raise enough to take on Rove dollar-for-dollar. We'll triple match every gift and immediately wire funds to deadlocked battlegrounds like Ohio and Virginia. And we'll win.

I'm told you gave recently, but the end-of-month deadline is crucial to the Senate majority, and I need to ask again. Can you put $X into the “Stop the Takeover” Fund in the next 10 hours? We still need 1,712 contributions in the 10 hours—and every gift will be matched 3-to-1.

Today, 11 Senate races are statistical ties. But Republicans only need four seats to take the Senate majority.

The “Stop the Takeover” Fund will ensure that Rove's giant attack campaign doesn't cost Democrats the Senate in six days.

Please contribute immediately — before tonight's end-of-month deadline. Your contribution will be triple matched [url]

Thank Kerry

Karl Rove's going to freak out when he hears about this: We've had a record-breaking 40,000 contributions in the past 48 hours — and we're only 450 away from hitting this midnight goal! Breaking new Senate polls show four ties in Massachusetts 47-47 Elizabeth Warren , Ohio 46-46, Nevada 44-44, and Wisconsin 47-47 after Karl Rove's largest attack campaign ever.

Republicans are only four seats from taking the Senate majority — and eleven races are currently tossups.

Now, let's match Rove and stop the Republican takeover! Tomorrow morning, we'll wire every dollar we raise before midnight to deadlocked battlegrounds like Ohio and Virginia to fight Rove. Please give $X immediately — we can do this!! We'll match every gift 3-to-1. 4 more hours. –Jason Rosenbaum

Romney for President

What you’re doing is working

Romney-Ryan Friend,

What a difference a few days makes. Supporters like you got behind our latest initiative to expand the electoral map, and take Governor Romney and the Republican team's plan for a real recovery to new states.

Thanks to your support, the Obama campaign and his liberal allies have been forced to play defense and place significant television buys in states they once considered "safe" wins.

Minnesota has now been moved from solid blue to "Lean Dem." And now the Obama campaign is buying ads in Pennsylvania they're even sending in Vice President Biden to help prop up their flagging campaign.

With one week to go, and 96% of the vote on the table on Election Day in Pennsylvania, this expansion of the electoral map demonstrates our momentum.

Your fundraising efforts have enabled us to compete with the billion-dollar Obama juggernaut on a level playing field helping us shape the landscape for this presidential election.

The Republican team has the resources to expand the map in ways that weren't possible in past cycles without reducing any effort in any other target states.

After fully funding the paid media effort, the ground operations, and the voter contact programs, Governor Romney's plan continues to resonate with voters, volunteers, and donors.

Your help is working and together, we will win on November 6th.

Please contribute now to help us and the Republican team keep up the momentum.

Romney-Ryan Friend,

November 6th is less than a week away. And with your help, we will win this election.

Thanks to your support, we've been able to level the playing field against the billion-dollar Obama juggernaut. You've helped shape the landscape for this election, and Barack Obama is not going to win.

Last Saturday, we launched an effort to raise $X million in 7 days to take our message into states that until recently leaned solidly Obama. It's because of you that we're now on the air in Pennsylvania, spreading our message of a real recovery, and our plan to create 12 million new jobs.

Your help is working.

Please contribute $X now to help Mitt Romney.
