It hurts to lose
I have good news and bad news. So let me give you the good news first.
Democrats are supposed to struggle in midterm elections, but this year, that's not happening. In race after race, great Democrats are running neck and neck with their opponents, and the pollsters and pundits are saying that control of the Senate is a straight tossup.
In other words, we're in a place where smart political organizing can make a huge difference. And that's something Democrats like you and me are good at! We know the value of getting the word out, expanding the vote, knocking doors, and making calls.
So help make sure we can take our case to voters these next 40 days. Please chip in $3 or more right now!

Our opponents are seeing the same polls that we are, and they know the stakes just as well as we do. But because they can't out-organize us, they're turning to a different strategy. Outside special interest groups and super PACs have invested their resources by blitzing the airwaves with as many negative ads as they can produce.
We don't need to match their spending dollar for dollar, but we do need to make sure that Democrats are able to make good on the plans we've made -- that we can execute our own strategy.
And that's why I'm asking you to make an investment in our party for the 2014 election. Donate $3 before the end of the day so that we know where we stand:
