The gap is closing
What's worse than being outraised in a critical election year?
Knowing we could have done something about it and didn't.
So, with that in mind, I've got some news:
Romney's campaign released their July fundraising numbers. We got beat again, but the gap is closing. That's right, our grassroots donations up against their deep-pocketed donors -- and we're without a doubt starting to gain. This is proof that, if we keep our eye on the ball, we can continue to close the fundraising gap, and give Democrats what it will take to win in November.
Donate $3 or more today to keep closing the gap:
Thanks -- we can do this.
Democratic National Committee
P.S. -- Romney and the RNC outraised us by $26 million in July, and $35 million in June. Your $3 donation will help close the gap.
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.
