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:
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.

Yes, yes I am.
Sorry Barry. I had a “golden ticket” to Rimshot Joe bobblehead night at the Bank of America stadium last week and you canceled it! KMA!
Yes you will Jim.
Soros finally chipped in!
Hopefully, Romney will “blanket the airwaves” by showing “2016” on some major network. It would definitely open some eyes.
I know damn is not necessarily the worst word in the world, but I would say that is not very presidential especially for campaign literature that could end up being seen by people who don’t need to see the word.
Kickback from the stimulus no doubt in my mind
Does the R/R campaign send out e-mail like this?
Lots of money from the Gaza strip, I bet.
You only know that a large portion of 0bama’s campaign money is laundered stimulus money and other illegally-transferred money that was appropriated from the federal coffers.
His people aren’t donors, they’re takers. Ad by “his people” I mean those of his political alignment. Not a racial comment at all.
I guess those abortion registries are paying off!
