I don't want to lose this election.

Not because of what losing would mean for me -- Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.

This race is very close.

I'm not willing to watch the progress you and I worked so hard to achieve be undone.

Don't wait. Donate $X or more today:

From the start of all of this, I've said that if we win, it will be because of you.

In exactly two weeks, I'll be in Chicago for Election Night, and I want you there with me.

Donate $X or whatever you can today to support our people-powered campaign -- and you and a guest will be automatically entered to meet me and be there when the results come in.

Our kind of politics is facing a serious test right now.

The question is whether millions of Americans like you, chipping in however you can -- energy, time, grassroots donations -- can contend with nearly $X million a week in TV ads in a handful of key states, mostly attacking me.

The other side is placing everything they've got on the bet that a plan funded mostly by a few anonymous billionaires is enough to win an election right at the very end.

I'm betting on you just like I always have.

I'm going to be out there every day working as hard as I can.

If you're willing to give it everything you've got, too, we'll win this election and get the chance to finish what we started.

Donate $X or more today to make sure we have the resources we need to fight until the very end. When you do, you'll be automatically entered to join me in my hometown of Chicago on Election Night:

Thanks. Let's go win.

Obama - Biden OK, done a lot of contests on this campaign, but you've GOT to pay attention to this one:

A trip to Chicago to meet the President and be in the front row for his speech on Election Night.

This is the moment we've all been working toward together -- and President Obama wants you to be there for the big night.

Chip in $X or whatever you can and you'll automatically be entered for the chance.

Whatever you chip in, you can be sure we'll spend it wisely.

We're at the end of a really close race -- the best way to run this campaign, and honor the investment you've made in it, is to spend every dollar in the most efficient way possible.

That means that every dollar you chip in is going toward the most essential resources for getting out our message and making sure voters get out to the polls in battleground states. That's not just TV ads, it's simple things like clipboards, gas cards, and printer ink.

Donate $X or whatever you can to keep our campaign going strong until the last polls close, and you'll automatically be entered to join the President in Chicago in two short weeks:

Obama for America

Winning this race isn't about me or my career. No matter what, Michelle and I will be fine.

It's about finishing what we started and building a future where everybody gets a fair shot at the American dream.

It's about putting someone in the White House who will fight every day for you and your family.

I'm going to do everything in my power, but I need you fighting alongside me to make sure this close race breaks our way.

Today, if you chip in $X or whatever you can to bring this campaign home, you'll automatically be entered for a chance to fly out with a guest to meet me and have a front-row pass to our Election Night event in Chicago:

We're in a position to win this race only because of what you're doing -- and I hope I get the chance to thank you in person.

Barack

P.S. -- Mitt Romney and the Republicans started the month with a cash advantage of $X million. That's a serious spending gap. Help close that gap in these crucial final days.
