It doesn't get closer than this: twelve Senate races are polling within single digits.

And make no mistake: the Republicans are looking at the same polls we are. And as we saw during the Republican presidential primaries, thanks to the Citizens United decision, Karl Rove and the Republicans' biggest billionaire moneymen can pour tens of millions into heinous attack ads to make those races go their way.

If a single ad goes unanswered – now, today, this week, next week – you could lose the Senate or even the White House.

Everything we've worked for together – from women's rights to Social Security – hangs in the balance. We must put $X in the bank for the DSCC in the next 15 hours so they have enough to defend our candidates and fight back when it counts.

Do not wait one minute. That's what Karl Rove is counting on. Races will be won and lost with the money we raise right now.

Click here to rush $X or more to the DSCC. Only 15 hours ‘til the May FEC fundraising deadline and we can, must, and absolutely will hit that $X goal.

Take it from me. I've seen firsthand just how low they'll go.

That horrifying, race-baiting playbook The New York Times exposed? That's the canary in the coalmine. The very worst of the worst mudslinging is coming – fast, and the Senate races will all be hanging in the balance. Unlike in any year before, lies and smears will be bankrolled to reach further than ever before.

It's up to us to make sure they don't carry the day - immediately and in the months to come. Coming together under the DSCC banner in these critical hours means we can give our candidates the resources they need to neutralize Rove's cash advantage.

If we don't hit back – hard – against every single attack, Republicans can and will destroy your Senate firewall.

Click here to rush $X or more to the DSCC. Only 15 hours ‘til the May FEC fundraising deadline and we can, must, and absolutely will hit that $X goal.

We've seen tough fights before. And together, we've always worked together to win. But this time the mountain of corporate cash pouring into the 2012 elections will make this our toughest fight yet. So stand with the DSCC – we've got our work cut out for us!
