It’s now crisis point for Barack Obama’s campaign – according to their own campaign manager, Jim Messina. He sent out a desperate fundraising email today decrying the campaign’s funding shortage:
I'm asking you to dig a little deeper, Benjamin:
We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.
The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.
We know what that means -- more and more misleading, negative ads trashing the President, you, me, and everything we've accomplished together over the past four years.
And we know what we have to do ….
After a year and a half of building and fighting and getting ready for Election Day, we cannot allow ourselves to be outdone at the very end.
On November 7th, when this campaign is behind us, you'll be glad you stepped up now.
Here's the good news: Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a free trip to Chicago where you'll meet the President and have front-row tickets to his speech on Election Night.
Please make a donation right now:
Obama for America
The headline of the email: “Some bad news.”
The worse news is that the Obama campaign still seems to think that the smaller it goes, the better it will do at the polls. And no number of $3 donations will fix that problem.
