The numbers are in
Our fundraising numbers from June are in. Along with President Obama's campaign, we raised $71 million, making this month our biggest yet. That's something to be proud of.
But we still got beat. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party raised more than $106 million -- making it the second month in a row that they outraised us, this time by $35 million.
That's a big gap. And if we don't do everything we can to close it now, we risk losing more than just a fundraising race in November.
Donate $3 or more today to close the gap.
Donations from Democrats like you are directly helping us at all levels across the country.
Over the last three months, your donations have helped us:
-- Continue to open field offices in all 50 states, including our 30th field office in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
-- Hold nationwide voter registration drives and register hundreds of thousands of people.
-- Organize the National Youth Summit, which gave more than 1,000 young people the tools to organize in neighborhoods and on their college campuses.
-- Run a four-day, six-state "Romney Economics: The Middle Class Under the Bus" tour highlighting Romney's failed economic record and vision -- which received an astounding amount of local press coverage, showing that exposing Romney's record is working.
We're working hard to make sure Democratic candidates win in November, but we've got an uphill battle if Romney and the Republicans continue to outraise us at such a pace. While Mitt Romney and the Republicans rely on mostly big donors to fund their campaigns, in June alone, more than 700,000 donors stepped up to support the DNC and Obama campaign.
We've got to do everything we can to put a stop to the Republican momentum -- so donate $3 or whatever you can to close the gap. It can't wait another day:
