urgent: Obama Needs Money!
Advertisements [?]
If this was posted earlier -- sorry for the dup, so please consider it a kick.
I'm just seeing it in my email.

Apparently McCain and GOP have saved up for the last hoo-rah! I thought
Obama had plenty of money to wind it down.

If you can donate something, guess it would be a good idea to do so now!

here's a copy of part of the letter, though I guess most of you got it, too:

Subject: Re: UPDATE: Obama campaign finances

Yesterday the McCain campaign said they would outspend our campaign by $10 million in the final days. This is on top of recent news that, as of October 15th, our opponents had $20 million more in the bank than our campaign and the DNC combined.

As of this morning, they may be able to outspend us -- but your generosity in response to my last email gives me hope that by the end of the day, we can rise to the challenge.

We knew the McCain campaign was saving its resources for a last-minute blitz, and now we know just how much they'll pour into it.

No matter what, we need to match what our opponents are spending in the final stretch. We can't slow down between now and Election Day.

And if you give again today -- any amount -- you could be one of 5 previous donors who will have a front row seat for the big Election Night event in Chicago with Barack.


Please donate $25 or whatever you can afford right now:

My team and I are working to stretch every dollar in order to keep as many paths to victory open as possible. But we need whatever help you can provide for this crucial final stretch.

Thank you,


Marianne Markowitz
Chief Financial Officer
Obama for America
