Democrats --

Real quick -- before you move on to your next email:

This is one of your last chances to get your name in the running to fly out to Chicago for Election Night next week -- and meet President Obama.

Take it from me, if you get the opportunity to go to Election Night in Chicago -- and meet the President -- you should take it.

Races are neck-and-neck for the President and Democratic candidates from California to Maine, and you can still make a difference.

Make a donation of $X or whatever you can to help Democrats and President Obama in this critical, final week of the election and you'll be automatically entered for the chance to win that trip to Election Night in Chicago:

On behalf of Democrats across the country, thank you for everything you're doing to help.

When we bring home wins next week, you'll know what a big part you played.

Thanks,

Debbie

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Chair Democratic National Committee
