100% chance we will lose
There are polls and pundits, amateurs on Twitter and professionals on TV (and professionals on Twitter too, now that I think about it), and they're all saying different things that can make it pretty hard to figure out how our odds in November really look.
There's a prevailing wisdom that we, or the President's party generally, are going to be doomed 100% of the time during off-year elections like these.
But the numbers I'm looking at tell a different story. We have key opportunities to pick up some governor's mansions and seats in the House. We can do this AND hold the Senate if we make a commitment today to work harder than we thought we'd have to -- not just in the really close states and districts, but everywhere.
We're looking for 460 people from San Francisco to step up. Can you chip in $3 or more right now to help Democratic campaigns work even harder?
If you've saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.I know we can only ask so much of you. But think of the stakes -- this isn't just any off-year election. It's the last chance we'll have to give President Obama a Congress that will work with him, and it sets the bar for what we accomplish in the next two years.
QUICK DONATE: $3

And thanks for stepping up when we need you.
