The Democratic Party -----------------------

Our next big fundraising deadline is Tuesday -- and we need your help.

As former chair of the Democratic Party, I know that after each of these FEC deadlines, hard decisions have to be made about where resources go -- whether we can afford to hire more organizers to register voters in Florida, or if we raised enough to pay for that big TV ad in Ohio to fight back against distortions and misinformation from the other side.

We need your help to make sure our Democratic candidates across the country have the resources they need to win on Election Day. Donate $X or more right now:

We've got a tough road ahead of us. Mitt Romney and the Republicans have outraised us two months in a row -- and after this critical fundraising deadline, they're going to be making decisions about where to send their funds, too.

That's why it's so important we make sure that Democrats at all levels have the resources they need to fight back and talk about what we stand for. Nobody likes the money race -- but we can't let a small group of powerful interests buy this election.

That's why we need your help -- one donation at a time, we're fighting back.

Donate $X or whatever you can right now before our critical fundraising deadline:

Thanks,

Gov. Howard Dean

The next $X of a contribution will be allocated to the Democratic National Committee. Any additional amounts from a contributor will be divided among the State Democratic Party Committees as follows, up to $X per committee and subject to the biennial aggregate limits: FL 17% ; OH 16% ; PA 13% ; CO 11% ; NC 11% ; VA 11% ; NV 6% ; WI 6% ; IA 5% ; and NH 4% . A contributor may designate his or her contribution for a particular participant. The allocation formula above may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution. Contributions to OVF 2012 will be used in connection with a Federal election, and may be spent on any activities of the participant committees as each committee determines in its sole discretion and will not be earmarked for any particular candidate.

I'll make this short, since I know that around fundraising deadlines your inbox can start to be pretty cluttered.

For the last two months, Mitt Romney and the Republicans have outraised Democrats and President Obama -- by $X million in June alone.

If we don't reverse this trend right now, Democrats across the board risk falling too far behind. As former chairman of the Democratic Party, I'm asking you to help make sure that doesn't happen -- help us close this fundraising gap. Your support could be the difference between winning and losing in November.

There's a critical fundraising deadline Tuesday at midnight, and we need to do everything we can to keep the Republicans from pulling away.
