15. Use It Or Lose It: Full Frontal Assault
If you don't know about the effort to get those Dems with safe seats and big warchests to share with other Dems, you can read the details in Chris' update here:

Call the ultra-safe Democrats in your state on this list. When you call, you will be told that these Democrats have already given money to Democratic challengers and party committees. Don't be daunted: Here are several ways to respond:

* Tell them that you know they have already given this cycle, but our target list hasn't been this deep--60-70 Republicans seats!--in over twenty years, and it needs to be fully funded, so they need to give more.
* Tell them the grassroots have never given this much before, and safe Democratic incumbents need to do the same.
* Tell them the DCCC and the DNC are taking out loans of more than $10 million in order to fund seats that have not been competitive in a decade.
* Tell them the time to buy new media is running out, and with every passing day, media buys will become more expensive for our candidates.

Remember, you won't be alone when you call. Thousands are joining you around the nation. Call ultra-safe Democratic House incumbents in your state today. Tell them you will sing their praises far and wide when they give 30%. Tell them we have to use this money, or we could lose these elections. It really is that simple.

You can report your calling experiences in the comments, or follow this link to's action report page.
