Keep the pressure on
|Dear automat, |
We have some good news today, and it's all thanks to supporters like you.
In the month of June, the DNC raised approximately $22 million -- our best month of the year by far.
This is a stunning achievement, and it's to your credit. People like you heard the call, and thousands have answered it.
But we're facing opponents with staggering resources at their disposal. The Republican National Committee finished June with nearly $68 million in the bank.
We can't stop now. We're counting on you to help us close the gap.
Please make a donation of $5 now to keep building our momentum and bring about the change this country so desperately needs:
The DNC does not accept donations from Washington lobbyists or special interest PACs.
But John McCain and the RNC have no such standards, and together they raised nearly $100 million in June. Add to that the huge checks brought in by shadowy outside groups, there's no telling how much our opponents will spend on attack ads.
They're not backing down, and neither can we. Only by working together can we fight back against the massive funds they're raising from special interest PACs and Washington Lobbyists.
It's up to you. Take a moment now and strengthen our movement for change:
We're fighting for Democrats up and down the ballot and in every state. That means competing in a lot of battlegrounds that have not traditionally been successful for Democrats. Our 50-state strategy is working -- but we need your support to keep the momentum going.
It's going to take all of us working together to defeat John McCain and the Republicans, and we can't do it without you.
