We're facing our most critical fundraising deadline yet tomorrow at midnight -- the money we raise now will be used to get us through the final month of the election, and across the finish line on November 6th.

As a former chair of the DNC, I know how important this final month is. People are already voting in Iowa, and other states will start voting in a matter of days.

This is where the rubber meets the road. Whether we win or lose on Election Day will be determined by whether Democrats have the resources we need to go after every single vote.

There is one surefire way you can help -- by chipping in $X or more today:

I know that, together, we can win this thing.

I became chair of the Democratic National Committee in 2005, in the depths of the Bush years.

Bush and the Republicans in Congress passed the most disastrous economic policies America has seen in generations. They led us into two wars without paying for them, crashed our economy, and gutted the middle class.

Over the past four years Democrats have been cleaning up the mess they left and getting America back on its feet and moving forward again.

We can't stand by and watch the Republicans attempt to drag us back to the exact same policies that failed the American people.

I won't.

You shouldn't, either -- because this election is in your hands. Donate $X or more today, before our most important fundraising deadline yet.

We've rebuilt the American auto industry, ushered in 30 consecutive months of private sector job growth, and begun laying the foundation for an economy built to last.

And we did it despite the most obstructionist Republican Congress in generations, doing everything they could to block policies to turn our economy around no matter how much it hurt the American people.

Your support can ensure that we keep America moving forward. With your help we can fight even harder in this last critical month of the campaign.

With your help we will win this fall. The last FEC fundraising deadline is just two days away and we need you more than ever.

Pitch in $X or more to support Democrats today:

Thanks,

Gov. Howard Dean

P.S. -- This is it. 38 days -- just over a month -- to go before the last ballots are cast on November 6th. 38 days to make our last, best case to the American people. Donate today.
