Don't brush this off, Automat

Automat --

In less than a week, Barack is heading to Chicago for Election Night. Whether he addresses the nation that night as a winner is up to you.

Barack knows it. I know it, too. It's why he wants you there with him.

But tonight at midnight is your last chance to enter.

Donate $5 or whatever you can to stop the other side from buying and bullying its way to a win right at the end -- and you'll be automatically entered to meet Barack and get a front-row seat at the Election Night event in Chicago.

Don't brush this off.

This race could not be closer, and voters in states that will decide the election are seeing ad after ad after ad attacking Barack and me.

Even a great campaign, with the right candidate and the right ideas, can lose to that kind of strategy in the end.

I've seen it happen.

The dangers of being drastically outspent, especially right now at the end of this campaign, are real. Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $45 million more in the bank than we do for the final push. Together with outside groups, they're outspending us in nearly every battleground state this week. That's a problem, folks, unless we do something about it.

Please donate $5 or whatever you can today, so that if you meet Barack next week, you'll know you did everything you could to help him beat this back:

Thanks,

Joe

P.S. -- Don't worry about how you'll get to Chicago and where you'll stay. If you're one of the lucky winners, the campaign will cover airfare and accommodations for you and a guest.

Hurricane Sandy

Automat --

As a Floridian, I know firsthand how devastating storms like Hurricane Sandy can be for our families and our communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been, and continue to be, affected by this storm.

It's important to remember that you can make a difference at this critical moment: Relief organizations like the American Red Cross are on the ground right now in all the communities affected by the storm.

If you'd like to find out more and see what you can do to help, please visit the American Red Cross right now:

http://my.democrats.org/Red-Cross

As the President pointed out last night, one of the great things about this country is that we pull together and look out for each other in times of need.

Soon enough, we'll get back to the campaign, and the critical choice facing our country next week. But for now please stay safe, and if you'd like, lend a hand.

Thank you,

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Friend --

This is a serious storm, but we are going to do what it takes to keep people safe and secure, and make sure the communities affected get the assistance they need. FEMA is working with state and local governments to respond effectively. We all owe a debt of thanks to the first responders who will be dealing with the immediate impact of the storm.

If you live in the storm's path, please listen to state and local authorities about where and how to take shelter and stay safe -- and encourage your friends and family to do the same. If you are asked to evacuate, please take that seriously.

Barack is getting outraised

Automat --

After all Barack has done in office, and after all you have done to build this campaign, we can't afford to watch everything slip away on Election Night.

But the other side has outraised us -- our opponents have $45 million more than we do for the final stretch. And none of us has ever seen what a barrage of money like that will do.

That's why we need to do everything we can in these last days, and why we still need your support.

And, until tomorrow night, any donation you make will automatically enter you to meet Barack on Election Night and have a front-row seat for his speech.

Please make a donation of $5 or whatever you can today.

We can either give it our all in these final days, or wake up on November 7th wishing we had done a little more.

Don't wait. Supporting this campaign once more will move us closer to victory -- and enter you to win a trip to Chicago to join Barack on Election Night:

https://donate.barackobama.com/Election-Night

Thanks,

Michelle

P.S. -- This is the final contest of this campaign. You really shouldn't miss this opportunity to get a front-row seat for Barack's speech on Election Night. Donate whatever you can right now, to make sure we finish this campaign strong.

This is dangerous:

Automat --

Look -- Barack and I need you.

We recently found out that, as we head into the final push, Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $45 million more in the bank than we do.

That's a problem, folks. In a race that's as close as they come -- and with Election Day almost here -- we're not willing to lose this in the end.

The good news is we've got you. And if you chip in today, we can close that gap more quickly than you think.

Please help us out with a donation of $5 or more today:

https://my.democrats.org/Fundraising-Gap

When you do, you'll be automatically entered to come out to Chicago for Election Night -- you and a guest will meet Barack and watch his speech from right up front.

Don't pass this one up, especially when your support is so critical.

Thanks,

Joe

Some alarming news:

Democrats
Automat --

We got some alarming news: The latest FEC report shows that Mitt Romney and the Republicans have $45 million more to spend than we do.

The only thing that could make this worse is if we don't do anything about it.

If we're going to pull out a win, we need to act immediately to close this fundraising gap. Make a donation of $5 or more now.

This is a problematic fundraising gap with just 10 days to go -- and if it worries you, it should.

It translates into an onslaught of misleading attack ads targeting President Obama and other Democrats in tight races across the country.

With more resources, we can fight back on the ground and on the air.

But that's up to you. I'm proud of how we've pulled together and kept pace with the other side -- we can't let it all be taken away in the last few days of this election. There is too much on the line.

Help close this fundraising gap today and put President Obama and Democrats in a position to win:

Automat, I'm breaking with precedent

Automat --

This afternoon, I'm casting my ballot in my hometown of Chicago. I'm told I'll be the first sitting president to take advantage of early voting.

And I can't wait.

I know I can count on your vote. Now, it's on all of us to make sure our friends and family step up. Reach out to folks you know in important early vote states.

Look, this race is extremely tight. It's going to come down to which side can more effectively turn out the vote in these final days, and early vote is a huge part of that.

Whether people get out to vote this year, in this election, is even more critical than the last time around.

So this is serious, and I'm going to need your help if we want to win.

Connect with your friends and urge them to vote early:

http://my.democrats.org/Help-Your-Friends-Vote-Early

Thanks,

Barack

Pretty or plain, heavy or thin, gay or straight, poor or rich

Automat --

I am not writing to you as a black voter, or a woman voter, or as a voter who is over 70 years old and six feet tall. I am writing to you as a representative of this great country -- as an American.

It is your job to vote. It is your responsibility, your right, and your privilege. You may be pretty or plain, heavy or thin, gay or straight, poor or rich.

But remember this: In an election, every voice is equally powerful -- don't underestimate your vote. Voting is the great equalizer.

Voting has already begun in some states that President Obama needs to win. So please use this handy tool to make sure your friends in those key states know where to cast their ballot. You will be doing them a great favor.

As a country, we can scarcely perceive the magnitude of our progress.

My grandmother and my uncle experienced circumstances that would break your heart. When they went to vote, they were asked impossible questions like, "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" When they couldn't answer, they couldn't vote.

I once debated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. about whether an African American would ever be elected president. He believed it would happen within the next 40 years at the time -- I believed it would never happen within my lifetime.

I have never been happier to have been proven wrong.

And since President Barack Obama's historic election, we've moved forward in courageous and beautiful ways. More students can afford college, and more families have access to affordable health insurance. Women have greater opportunities to get equal pay for equal work.

Yet as Rev. King wrote, "All progress is precarious."

So don't sit on the sidelines. Don't hesitate. Don't have any regrets. Vote.

Go, rise up, and let your friends and family in early vote states know where they can vote today. We must make our voices heard:

http://my.democrats.org/Help-Your-Friends-Vote-Early

Your vote is not only important. It's imperative.

Thank you,

Dr. Maya Angelou

P.S. -- Not on Facebook? Send your friends to vote.barackobama.com -- don't let technology get in the way of your incredible duty to our democracy.

As offensive as it gets

Democrats
Automat --

Last night in the Indiana senatorial debate, Republican Richard Mourdock said that when a woman becomes pregnant as the result of rape, "it's something God intended."

One day earlier, Mitt Romney, the leader of the Republican Party, appeared in a TV ad supporting Mourdock's campaign, making him the only candidate in the entire country for whom Romney cut an ad in the general election. The fact that he has chosen Mourdock as the best representative for the Republican Party tells you everything you need to know.

And Governor Romney still won't back off his endorsement of Mourdock, let alone demand that Mourdock's campaign pull down the ad.

Yes, Automat, these are the kinds of candidates that we're working so hard to defeat in less than two weeks. But we can't do it unless Democrats across the country have the resources they need to win -- donate $5 or more now.

As hard as it may be to believe that a politician in 2012 actually believes something so offensive and demeaning to women, these views are part and parcel of the Republican Party's platform on women's health.

At a Mourdock rally earlier in this election, Romney said, "This is a man who I want to see in Washington, to make sure that we can not just talk about changing things, but actually have the votes to get things changed."

This man could be your president-elect in 14 days.

As a woman and a mother, I can't imagine raising my son in a country led by politicians who think so little of women and their health. And I'm going to work as hard as I possibly can every single day to make sure that we beat these guys on Election Day -- but I can't do it alone.

Donate $5 or more now to ensure that the GOP's backwards views on women's rights don't become a reality:

Stick with me, Automat

Automat --

I don't want to lose this election.

Not because of what losing would mean for me -- Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.

This race is very close.

I'm not willing to watch the progress you and I worked so hard to achieve be undone.

Don't wait. Donate $5 or more today:

https://my.democrats.org/Two-Weeks

I believe in you. If you stick with me, and if we fight harder than ever for the next two weeks, I truly believe we can't lose.

Thank you,

Barack

P.S. -- I don't know what Election Night will hold, but I'd like you to be a part of the event here in Chicago. Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a chance to meet me -- airfare and hotel for you and a guest are covered.

Before the last debate tonight...

Automat --

Tonight is Barack's last debate in his last election.

It's also the last major milestone of this campaign before Election Day.

This is it -- and your support in these final days means everything.

Can you chip in $5 or more right now?

I know Barack is ready to get out there tonight and fight for supporters like you who have built this campaign the right way -- from the ground up.

As soon as he leaves the stage, I know he'll be thinking about tomorrow, and all the work we need to do to win in these last two weeks.

If you're with him now and you're ready to dig deep until the end, chip in $5 or more and let Barack know before tonight's debate:

https://my.democrats.org/Last-Debate

If we're going to win this, it'll be because of you. Barack and I can't thank you enough.

Mitt Romney worked for me

Automat --

Typically when someone applies for a job, they offer references -- people who can speak to their past job performance.

I'm happy to volunteer to be a reference for Mitt Romney. He used to work for me when he was the governor of my state, Massachusetts. So speaking as a citizen, let me tell you as clear as I can: This man does not deserve a promotion.

Under Romney, the debt burden per capita was the highest of any state in the nation. He raised or created more than 1,000 taxes and fees on people across Massachusetts, while 278 wealthy residents in the state got a tax break. And Massachusetts plummeted to 47th out of 50 in job creation.

What does it say that the people who know Mitt Romney best trust him least? He is trailing by 20 points or more in the state where he was governor.

That should raise a few red flags, Automat.

If that's not what you want for the next four years, then chip in $5 or more and help President Obama and Democrats across the country beat Romney and other Republicans:

Thanks,

John Kerry

P.S. -- The stakes could not be higher, and we're just about out of time. Tomorrow is the final debate, and then we're just two weeks away. No regrets. Donate $5 or more today.

President Obama was terrific last night

Automat --

I know how President Obama feels right now because I've been there.

These final 20 days will be the toughest of the whole campaign. We'll win this, but only if we go after every single vote.

Right now, Barack needs everyone who believes in him to step up. If you do, that will see him through.

Midnight tonight is the last FEC fundraising deadline of this campaign, and then all of our planning and building comes down to just one last test on November 6th.

Let's bring it home for Barack. If you can, please make a donation of $5 or more today:

https://my.democrats.org/Deadline

President Obama was terrific last night, and I'm proud to be on his team. Today, he's counting on us to do our part.

Thank you,

Bill Clinton

P.S. -- The other side has launched a massive ad blitz in battleground states, and we need to respond swiftly and powerfully. Please donate $5 or more today so that this campaign's grassroots operation has the resources it needs to compete and win.

I'm going all out

Democrats
Automat --

The last FEC deadline of this election is at midnight tonight.

I actually can't overstate how important this deadline is -- how much we raise before midnight will determine whether we have the resources to get out every vote we need to win on Election Day.

In case you need a reminder of what's at stake: Mitt Romney and the Republicans will end federal funding of Planned Parenthood, get rid of Obamacare, turn Medicare into a voucher program, raise taxes on the middle class in order to cut them for millionaires and billionaires, and let Wall Street go back to writing its own rules.

It's go time. There are only 20 days left for us to do everything we can to win this thing. I'm going to leave it all out on the field -- and I hope you will, too.

Donate $5 or more ahead of our midnight deadline to give Democrats the resources we need to win:

We can do this,
