Last email from me for a while
I'm here to tell you, really quickly, about why tonight's fundraising deadline matters.
The past couple of months, our president has been vastly outraised by Republicans. Democrats in races across the country are up against the same thing, with outside groups pouring millions in to drag us down.
If we don't stop this trend, and start closing the gap, 2012 could go down as the year that powerful special interests learned that elections can have a price tag.
I'm not willing to accept that -- and I hope you aren't either.
I promise this will be the last email you get from me for a while.
Will you help close that fundraising gap?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee
P.S. -- We've got less than 100 days left until Election day. Thank you for everything you've done, and everything you do these next 98 days to help Democrats win. You won't regret it.
Contributions or gifts to Obama Victory Fund 2012 are not tax deductible.
The first $5,000 of a contribution to OVF 2012 will be allocated to Obama for America (with the first $2,500 designated for the primary election, and the next $2,500 for the general election). The next $30,800 of a contribution will be allocated to the Democratic National Committee. Any additional amounts from a contributor will be divided among the State Democratic Party Committees as follows, up to $10,000 per committee and subject to the biennial aggregate limits: FL (17%); OH (16%); PA (13%); CO (11%); NC (11%); VA (11%); NV (6%); WI (6%); IA (5%); and NH (4%). A contributor may designate his or her contribution for a particular participant. The allocation formula above may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution. Contributions to OVF 2012 will be used in connection with a Federal election, and may be spent on any activities of the participant committees as each committee determines in its sole discretion and will not be earmarked for any particular candidate.
