BREAKING: Tea Party leader Allen West wants ballots, voting machines impounded

The latest vote count gives Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy a decisive lead over Tea Party leader Allen West!

But West isn't going down without fighting it.

Even after spending millions to keep his seat, West has a huge war chest ready to challenge the ballots of Florida voters. If we want to win this race, we have to act IMMEDIATELY to make sure every single vote is counted fairly and accurately.

Will you help us knock out the Tea Party? Donate $X or more right now to help us get boots on the ground and protect the vote

If West loses, it would be absolutely devastating to the Tea Party movement.

In just two years in Congress, he's made a name for himself by calling President Obama a "low-level socialist agitator" and accusing Democratic members of Congress of being Communists. Now, all we have to do to defeat him is make sure we protect the ballots of Florida voters.

Help us make it happen!

Rep. Allen West Heads To Court Over Vote Count CBS Miami --

As of last night, with 100% of precincts reporting, Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy has expanded his margin of victory over Tea Party leader Allen West!

But Congressman West still refuses to concede. Today, he is using his $X million war chest to begin a legal battle that could be long and expensive. The next 24 hours are critical: we can't let West steal this election.

Thank you

Obama - Biden --

President Obama made a surprise visit to the campaign office in Chicago yesterday to give a heartfelt thank-you to staff and volunteers.

I wanted to pass this video along, because it's a message every single person who helped build this campaign deserves to see. He wasn't just talking to those of us in the office -- he was talking to all of you.

Thank you

In his speech on Election Night, President Obama gave you all the title you have spent the last year and a half earning:

"The best campaign team and volunteers in the history of politics."

So many times in this election, this campaign was counted out. They said our supporters wouldn't turn out, and we'd never see the kind of voter participation we saw in 2008. They said we'd be buried in money and special-interest influence. And they said that no campaign could overcome the political headwinds we faced.

Last year, a major American newspaper asked, "Is Obama toast?" As recently as two weeks ago, another ran this headline: "Can Obama win?"

Tuesday night, you all answered all of those doubts with a resounding YES WE CAN. By knocking on doors, organizing phone banks, and chipping in a few bucks when you could, you built a campaign that is unparalleled. And you re-elected our president.

You also proved that millions of ordinary people taking ownership of a cause is still the most powerful force in our political process. You showed that grassroots organizing and small donations are not only the right way to win, but also the most effective way.

How we got here must guide where we go. If we're going to accomplish the things America voted for on Tuesday, you've got to be even more involved in getting them done than you were in giving us all the chance.

We'll be in touch soon about how we can get started on some of the President's top priorities in his second term.

For now, I just want to say I am so proud of this team. And I can't wait to see where you take this incredible movement from here.
