Did you see the President's email?

Five years ago today, Barack Obama launched his campaign on the statehouse steps in Springfield, Illinois.
Think about how far we've come since that day and what we, as Democrats, have accomplished together. We're all a part of this.
Check out a video that looks back on the past five years, and reminds us of what's at stake this November:
Democratic National Committee
From: Barack Obama
Subject: Five years ago today
Five years ago today, a few thousand of us gathered in Springfield, Illinois, to launch an improbable campaign for president.
The task was to build a grassroots movement capable of making the kind of change we believe in.
You've got to see this video about that journey -- it will make you smile:
From the very start this has been an experiment in our political process, testing whether ordinary people really can still come together to change this country.
We proved that it's possible. But we've also learned that entrenched interests adapt and claw back even harder, which means this election will be even more of a challenge.
I can't wait to see what you can do.
More than 1 million people like you power this campaign. If you can, please donate today.
