It's deadline day. We're down to the last few hours before we tally up our numbers -- and make some tough calls about what Democrats can do in August. This could be our most important deadline yet.
If you can, please support Democrats across the country with an urgent donation of $3 or more before midnight tonight.
We're getting drastically outspent in this election, and people keep asking me how we can step it up. But the reality is, we're playing a different game -- relying on people chipping in a little bit whenever they can -- and we need to do more with less. It's my job to pinch the pennies and make sure we're putting our resources where they'll do the most. That's a tight budget. And that's why I'm emailing you.
I don't think anyone makes a donation just because they're happy to hear from me again over email.
Everyone who supports Democrats is stepping up for a reason. Maybe it's because you believe in winning elections the right way, building something one person at a time, and working together toward a better future. Or because you don't want to see so much hard-fought progress erased, or a return to policies of the past that sent the country into a ditch, or maybe you're just fired up to re-elect this President and win a Democratic majority in both houses of Congress.
Think about your reason for supporting Democrats, and please give $3 or more today:
I couldn't be prouder of what we've done together. Let's make sure we don't slip in the last few months.

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.
