I believe there should be balance in your life -- normally. But today's the last day before the biggest FEC fundraising deadline of this election so far.
So even though it's my birthday, my husband and son will be dining on their own tonight. And I'm here at the office, sending this email and hoping you'll respond before midnight. No complaints -- I'm happy to be here. This is important.
That deadline is a few hours away. Can I count you in for $5 or more?
We've got a month left to sprint to the finish, and do everything possible to help Democrats win.
People are working SO incredibly hard across the country because, if Mitt Romney wins, that's a victory for Karl Rove, Sheldon Adelson, and the Koch brothers.
And it would be a crushing, scary defeat for women, for our children, for veterans, college students, and anyone who works hard to retire with the benefits they've earned. Or anyone who's sick or whose children depend on affordable health care. In short, pretty much all of us.
So please, if you can, chip in now. Tomorrow we've got to make some tough calls about what races we can and can't lean into, and your help right now could make the difference:
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

P.S. -- I promise, we won't be emailing you again today, this is it! Make a donation of $5 or more before midnight.
