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

This is your last chance.

The contest to win a free trip to the Democratic convention ends tonight -- and I want to make sure you get your name in the hat for this incredible prize.

I've been lucky enough to take some of our supporters to some pretty cool events with the President and the First Lady. But I can say without a doubt that this trip to the convention -- complete with VIP passes to events, the chance to meet President Obama, and sitting up front in the First Lady's section while the President speaks -- is the neatest experience I've heard of yet.

And what's better? All you have to do is chip in $X or whatever you can today to be automatically entered to win:
