Roger R.,

The race for the White House is a dead heat. Great Democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown are  getting swarmed with negative ads. Karl Rove and the Koch brothers are using their billionaire donor network to drown out your voice.

So, yeah, this a big moment. Like, a history book kind of moment. And you – yes, you – have a job to do right now.

Your job is to protect President Obama and the Democratic champions who are under attack. Believe me, there's no one else who’s going to do it but you.

Without your $5 contribution, the DSCC can’t hit its $1.4 million goal by midnight Saturday – and tied races will turn into uncontrollable deficits real fast. See, the other side doesn’t have much use for grassroots organizing. They rely on groups with phony sounding names, but should be called, “Anonymous Billionaires for Destroying the President,” that do nothing but sling trash at President Obama and Democrats.

But when it comes time for our side to fight back, just about all we have is grassroots support. Last month, 99% of the DSCC’s contributions came from grassroots supporters. People who aren’t billionaires. People like you.

That kind of grassroots support can break this tie – but only if everyone joins this fight today.

Have you helped us get to our $1.4 million goal? We’ve only got 4 days left to get there – so click here right now and contribute $5 to help President Obama and the Democrats fight back against Rove and the Koch brothers.

We’ve got a tie ballgame on our hands. We’ve got a President and a bunch of great candidates out there fighting for working families. We’ve got Rove and the Koch brothers sounds like the worst doo-wop group of all time throwing mud by the millions.

And you’ve got a job to do. Thanks for stepping up.
