This week, Republicans are gathering in Tampa for their convention, posing for the cameras, falling over each other to prove who's the most severe conservative of them all. There's plenty of angry, misleading rhetoric, but not much in the way of real action or results.

Here's what Democrats are doing this week:

     -- Welcoming volunteers to hundreds of field offices in all 50 states      -- Logging hundreds of thousands of volunteer-hours of one-on-one voter outreach, over the phone and at the door      -- Organizing thousands of watch parties for our convention next week

That's just one week for our organization, and it's only going to get more intense from here. Because that's the only way we'll win.

Help make sure we have the resources to get it done by pitching in $X before our critical fundraising deadline on Friday.

Republicans are in the middle of four days of Obama-bashing and truth-distorting attacks -- and they're hoping it will give them a badly needed bump in the polls. The reality is, we're probably going to see it come true over the next couple days. When the Republicans leave Tampa, it's pretty likely they'll be ahead in the horse race.

That's why Democrats aren't wasting any time.

Our organizers and volunteers are working nationwide and around the clock to get our message out. While Republicans are ramping up the attacks and extremism, we're doubling down on our grassroots strategy. For us, the convention is an opportunity to share our message face to face with as many Americans as possible, culminating in a week of grassroots action immediately after the President officially accepts the nomination.

We're building our organization for the only polls that matter: the ones on November 6th. Your support now, before our fundraising deadline on Friday, is critical to making that happen. Donate $X or more today:

Gov. Howard Dean
