Before midnight:

Democrats
Automat --

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:

I want to win

Automat --

I can't do this on my own.

Before tonight's fundraising deadline, I'm asking for your help.

We're on the brink of a milestone American politics has never seen: 10 million grassroots donations in one election year. Help get us there.

Chip in $5 or more today:

I'll keep this short

Democrats
Automat --

I'll keep this short.

Tonight is the most important fundraising deadline of this election so far, and it's time for us all to step up.

How much we raise before midnight tonight will determine the resources we have heading into the final month of this election. It will determine how many doors we can knock on, how many TV ads we can run, and whether we have what we need to get every voter we can to the polls between now and Election Day.

The way we win is by doing this together, each of us stepping up to do our part.

Donate $5 or more before tonight's critical fundraising deadline and let's head into this final month with as much momentum as we can get:

The biggest deadline we've faced

Automat --

Voters are already casting their ballots early in some states, and the first debate is next week.

In almost no time at all, this race will be over.

One of the very last fundraising deadlines is coming up tomorrow, and the resources we have by then will help decide how this race turns out. Barack can't do this alone -- to win, he needs supporters like you giving it your all.

Donate $5 or more before that deadline so we're ready for the final days of this campaign.

Believe me, every time Barack hears someone tell him he's earned their vote, it makes his day. That doesn't get old.

To hear that you're out there, lending your voice and getting others involved, means the world to us both.

The $5 you give before the deadline is what makes this campaign possible.

Help grow this campaign in these last weeks, when it matters the most:

https://my.democrats.org/September-Deadline

This election is in your hands.

Thanks,

Michelle

P.S. -- This is incredible. We're about to reach 10 million grassroots donations since January alone. Add yours to help reach that goal -- your donation will go a lot further right now than it will closer to Election Day.

Big deadline

Automat --

We're facing our most critical fundraising deadline yet tomorrow at midnight -- the money we raise now will be used to get us through the final month of the election, and across the finish line on November 6th.

As a former chair of the DNC, I know how important this final month is. People are already voting in Iowa, and other states will start voting in a matter of days.

This is where the rubber meets the road. Whether we win or lose on Election Day will be determined by whether Democrats have the resources we need to go after every single vote.

There is one surefire way you can help -- by chipping in $5 or more today:

https://my.democrats.org/Fall-Deadline

I know that, together, we can win this thing.

The biggest deadline yet

Automat --

They want to cut taxes for high-income Americans while the middle class shoulders the burden.

They want to let Wall Street write its own rules again, and remove the financial regulations President Obama has put in place to prevent another crash.

They want to cut the budget in a radical way, decimating programs that help the middle class, poor children, seniors, and those in science and technology that will create the good jobs of the future.

They want to turn Medicare into a risky voucher program that could actually raise costs for seniors by as much as $6,400 per year.

This week, both campaigns -- Mitt Romney's and President Obama's -- face the biggest fundraising deadline yet.

If we want President Obama in that White House for another four years, we can't take anything for granted, especially critical moments like this.

Donate $5 or more today, and let's bring this home for President Obama and Democrats across the country:

https://my.democrats.org/Fall-Deadline

Thanks,

Bill Clinton

P.S. -- Your donation will go further now than it will next week. That's because it will immediately be put to use -- if your $5 (for example) goes toward hiring an organizer in Akron, Ohio, she'll have more time to do her job and reach more voters. And that's how elections are won.

Tea Party stranglehold

Automat --

This is one of the last times I'll send you an email about a critical fundraising deadline in this election.

So here it is: We need your help if we're going to defeat Mitt Romney and take back Congress from the Tea Party stranglehold.

Why? Because in six weeks, this thing is going to be over. Win or lose, good or bad, it'll be the end of this election. And your donation is going to make the biggest impact right now.

So I need you to help out, Automat. Can you donate $5 or more today?

Millions of Americans are counting on us -- there's more on the line than ever before.

If we don't do all we can between now and Election Day, there are simply no words to describe the regret we could feel. Mitt Romney and a cohort of extreme Republicans could be at the helm of every policy decision that affects you, me, and all Americans for generations to come.

Can I count you in to help build this movement by chipping in $5 or more?

I'm proud to be standing with you,

Good morning

I hope you'll pay attention, Automat.

We're facing a big FEC fundraising deadline -- after this, there's only one more before Election Day.

Here's why that matters: Your donation will go further now than it will next week. That's because it will immediately be put to use -- if your $5 (for example) goes toward hiring an organizer in Akron, Ohio, she'll have more time to do her job and reach more voters. And that's how elections are won.

Not "ladylike"??

Democrats
Automat --

Todd Akin -- the man who offended just about everyone when he made the dead wrong claim that there is a medical difference between "legitimate rape" and other instances of rape -- was just officially locked in as the GOP opponent for Claire McCaskill's Missouri Senate seat.

Today, here's what he had to say about the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Missouri, after he observed that she seemed "aggressive" in Friday's debate:

"[In her 2006 campaign, McCaskill] had a confidence and was very much more sort of ladylike."

If you've heard enough, chip in $5 to stop him. The critical September fundraising deadline is when Democrats will decide if we have the resources to really take on candidates like this one -- so it's up to you, right now.

Mr. Akin thinks Missouri's Senator, who serves on the Senate Committee on Armed Services, Committee on Commerce, Committee on Science and Transportation, Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and Special Committee on Aging, is not "ladylike" because she wasn't sweet to him in their debate.

"She came out swinging," Akin said, "and I think that's because she was threatened."

You're in a position to stop this man from holding office in our nation's Senate and to stop him from authoring our laws. You're in a position to stand with Senator McCaskill as she enters the fight of her life. The September FEC fundraising deadline is in just a few days, and that's when we're going to have to make calls about how hard Democrats can fight against extreme GOP candidates like this.

Donate $5 or more to help Democrats shut this guy down and take on the cynical, win-at-any-cost backers funding him:

https://my.democrats.org/Defeat-Republicans

Todd Akin's crossed the line again and again, and we're the ones who are going to tell him that he can't take his ignorance, his fanaticism, and anything else he has to say about what's ladylike and what's not to our Senate floor.

Here's the deal:

Automat --

It's not hyperbole to suggest that this is the starkest choice for president that this country has had in my lifetime.

Barack and I have a fundamentally different vision and profoundly different values than our opponents do on everything from Medicare to how to balance the federal budget to a woman's right to make her own health care decisions.

That's why it's absolutely critical that we have the resources we need over these final weeks to win tight races across the country.

Chip in $5 or more today -- before our big quarterly fundraising deadline.

If you think your donation doesn't matter, just look at what congressional Republicans have done over the past four years. They've dug in their heels to oppose the President and his agenda every chance they've gotten -- and a lot of their disagreements aren't based on the facts or their principles or what the American people need. They're just trying to shut him down.

I think if President Obama said he liked mustard on his hot dogs, you'd hear a lot of the other guys start talking about how pro-ketchup they are.

That's not leadership, and it's why this election -- and what you do today -- is so important. Make a donation of $5 or more now:

https://my.democrats.org/Fall-Deadline

Thanks for all you do to support this organization.

A little bittersweet

Automat --

My favorite campaign tradition started five years ago -- check out the email below.

It's just incredible how much we've grown -- from 100,000 individual donors at that time to more than 3 million in this campaign alone -- and how much we've accomplished together.

Tomorrow night, we're selecting the guests for the last dinner of my last campaign. I'm looking forward to closing out this tradition the way it started: with supporters like you.

Will you be there?

Make a donation of $5 or whatever you can, and you'll be automatically entered:

https://my.democrats.org/Dinner

It's bittersweet, but this is the last time we'll do this on this campaign. I'd love for you and your guest to be there. As always, your flight and hotel are on us.

Thanks,

Barack

Dear friend,

When we launched this campaign, we decided not to take the easy money offered by Washington lobbyists and special interest political action committees.

Instead, we put our faith in you, and we couldn't have made a better choice.

I'll be meeting four of you for dinner sometime soon, but what's happening across this country is bigger than me, or my candidacy.

Together we're re-shaping the political process based on the idea that a movement of people who care about the common future of all Americans can be more powerful than any special interest.

I hope you'll take a minute to make a donation, and perhaps we'll be seeing each other soon.

Thank you,

Barack

Here's the kicker:

Democrats
Automat --

We learned recently what Mitt Romney says behind closed doors -- that 47 percent of Americans "believe they are victims." He says, "My job is not to worry about those people."

Here's the real kicker, folks:

He's raising millions of dollars even as he says stuff like that. That's actually how he's building his campaign: Belittling half of this country, including our veterans who depend on the VA and students building their future through student loans.

Shame on him.

Let's show Mitt Romney and Republicans across the country something about how we build our organization. Right now.

Chip in $5 or what you can to give Democrats the resources they need to win:

Dinner?

Automat --

As we're organizing the last dinner with supporters on my last campaign, our kind of politics is running up against a very cynical calculation:

That a few billionaires writing $10 million checks are enough to overpower the voices of millions of Americans.

That's why I want to meet you for dinner.

Donate $5 or whatever you can to our people-powered campaign, and be automatically entered to join me -- hotel and airfare covered for you and a guest.

Overnight, we aren't going to change the rules that allow outside groups to spend hundreds of millions of dollars attacking me on the airwaves.

So we have to stay on the case every day.

Last week we learned that more than 1.1 million donors in August alone -- out of more than 3 million people supporting this effort -- had outraised Mitt Romney and the Republicans for the first time since April.

If we keep doing this our way, I guarantee you there'll be no stopping us.

Donate $5 or whatever you can today and you'll be automatically entered to be at the table:

Barack

When Romney thought the cameras were off

Democrats
Automat --

When he thought the cameras were off, this is what Mitt Romney told a group of wealthy donors he really thinks about half of America:
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the President no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what...These are people who pay no income tax...

"My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
Think about that for a second. A man who is running for president of the United States thinks that half of all Americans aren't worth his effort or time -- that they see themselves as victims, and don't take responsibility for their lives.

Putting aside the factual inaccuracies in that statement, think about how badly he's misjudged the character of this nation. This man should not be president.

Pitch in $5 or more today to help us fight.

This is the kind of mentality that President Obama and Democrats across the country are up against. We believe that every American deserves a fair shot -- no matter where they come from or who their parents are.

And you know what? It is the job of the president to worry about every American, no matter whether they voted for him or not.

I can't stomach the thought of Mitt Romney and Republicans who think like he does winning in 49 days. But we've got a tough road ahead of us, and we need your help to fight back.

Donate $5 or more today to give President Obama and Democrats the resources they need to win on Election Day:

The end of a campaign tradition

Automat --

Every couple of months, Barack gets to have dinner with supporters like you -- and he loves it.

But now that we're in the final stretch, the last dinner of this campaign is coming up.

So please give $5 or whatever you can to be automatically entered for your seat at the table.

It'll be fun, but probably a little bittersweet, too.

Not only is this Barack's last campaign, but it's also the end of a long tradition. He held the first of these dinners early on during his first presidential campaign.

So don't miss this last chance to join Barack for dinner. You'll get to bring a guest with you, and we'll cover the airfare and hotel, too:

Michelle

I'm saving a seat for Automat

Automat --

I'm only going to get to sit down to dinner with grassroots supporters on this campaign one last time.

It's one of the most meaningful things we do, and represents exactly the kind of politics we believe in: All of us, at one table, together.

So if you're someone who is helping to build this campaign, I want to meet you. I want to thank you in person. And I'd love to hear what's on your mind.

This is the last time we'll be able to sit down together for one of these -- so I hope you'll take me up on it.

Your donation of $5 or whatever you're able to chip in will automatically enter you:

https://my.democrats.org/Dinner

Thanks.

Barack

P.S. -- Flight and hotel are on me. All you have to do is come and eat.

So much on the line

Automat --

My daughter Zoe was born with a congenital heart defect that required her to have multiple open heart surgeries in the first few months of her life. By the time she was six months old, she had already reached over half of her lifetime insurance cap, which would have left us unable to pay for the continuing care and future surgeries required for Zoe to survive.

I can't tell you how relieved I was when Obamacare passed. I got a letter from our insurance company telling us that Zoe's lifetime cap had been removed. It meant my family wouldn't have to lose everything to keep my daughter alive.

And the Republicans want to take this away?

There is just so much on the line in this election. The best thing we can do right now is give President Obama and other Democrats the resources they need to win in 54 days.

Please chip in $5 or more today.

Mitt Romney and the Republicans say that if they win on November 6th, they'll repeal Obamacare on Day One. That means that millions of Americans -- including children like Zoe, who have already overcome insurmountable odds -- stand to lose the coverage they need to stay healthy.

The stakes are incredibly high, and incredibly personal. And I, for one, can't sit by while the Republicans threaten my daughter's health and my family's well-being -- and I hope you can't, either.

Donate $5 or more today to protect Obamacare and help Democrats fight in these last weeks of their campaigns:

Thank you so much for fighting,

I don't usually email you

Automat --

I usually don't email you -- but I have an amazing invitation I have to share.

Jay and I will be meeting up with President Obama for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And we want you to be there!

Until midnight tonight, if you pitch in $5 or whatever you can, you'll be automatically entered to be flown out to join us.

I've had the honor of meeting President Obama and the First Lady a few times -- and believe me -- it's an opportunity you don't want to miss.

Don't worry about the airfare and hotel, it's taken care of. And you can bring a guest.

But the countdown is on -- this opportunity ends at midnight:

Can't wait to meet you!

Pledge to vote

Automat --

I know we've been asking a lot from you lately. What I'm asking today is easy -- but critical if we want to win this election.

Please take a moment to commit to vote this fall, and get at least one other person to do the same.

In a matter of days, voting will have already started in some states, and I just want to know that you plan to do your part to make sure Barack gets four more years to move this country forward.

Please say that you'll vote, and get others to join you.

We know what's at stake this year. And if each of us makes the commitment to vote now and gets others excited about doing the same, we'll be one step closer to winning this election.

So check your registration, pledge to vote this year, and then get your friends and family to do the same:

You proved them wrong

Automat --

Just when the pundits and everyone else thought they knew the equation in this race -- you're changing it.

I learned today that, for the first time since April, we closed the gap. We outraised Mitt Romney and the Republicans.

We can't let it be the last time.

More than 3 million Americans now own a piece of this campaign -- in August alone, more than 1.1 million people stepped up to make a donation.

Let's close that gap for good. Show what we're capable of with a donation of $5 or more:

https://my.democrats.org/August-Numbers

What an incredible week.

Fwd: I'll be damned

Automat --

This is an enormously big deal: We closed the fundraising gap in August, with the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party raising $114 million compared to the $111 million raised by Romney and the Republicans.

Thanks to you, we outraised the other side for the first time since April. But we can't stop now -- we need your help to keep that gap closed.

These numbers don't include super PAC or outside spending, and the other side is going to do everything they can to outraise us in the next 57 days. We need to keep up the momentum.

Check out Obama campaign manager Jim Messina's email below for more details, then donate $5 or more today to help keep this close:

https://my.democrats.org/August-Numbers

Thanks,

Patrick

From: Jim Messina
Subject: I'll be damned

Friend --

Huge news:

We finally closed the gap. We outraised Mitt Romney and the Republicans $114 million to $111 million in August.

Unbelievable. After three straight months of getting beat -- and not by a small margin -- more than 1,170,000 supporters made a donation to close the gap.

We can't let up for one second. These August numbers don't reflect outside group fundraising or spending -- and in that category we're still getting thrashed.

Right before the conventions, we were being outspent by super PACs alone in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin. That margin was more than 2 to 1 in Florida, Iowa, and North Carolina.

Already, more than 3 million grassroots donors have stepped up to make sure they can't drown us out. According to our records, you weren't among them. Are you going to let this campaign go by without joining in?

Stand up and be counted -- donate $5 or more today to help build on this momentum.

We recently learned Karl Rove is rounding up the most powerful Republican donors to give all they've got to beat Barack Obama.

And it's clear the Romney campaign has been building up a cash advantage that would allow them to blanket the airwaves with negative ads even if we did close the gap. Last week a Romney-Ryan official compared their latest ad campaign to the "daisy cutter" bombs used in the Iraq War. Another adviser to the campaign said their goal from now to Election Day is to "carpet bomb" President Obama and Vice President Biden.

After all our hard work over the past 17 months, I'll be damned if the Romney campaign, Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, and a handful of anonymous billionaires "carpet bomb" the President and end up deciding this election for millions of Americans in the last 57 days.

We just proved we can go head to head with Romney and the Republicans and win. That can't stop now.

This will be a tight race to the end. Donate $5 or more today:

https://my.democrats.org/August-Numbers

Together we're proving that ordinary Americans -- not special interests or super PACs -- will decide this election. I'm proud to be a part of this campaign, and even more determined to make sure our hard work translates into a win for President Obama in November. I hope you feel the same way.

Thanks for all you're doing.

Messina
