On the heels of news Mitt Romney and Republicans hold a $45 million advantage over Obama and Democrats going into the last twelve days of the campaign, the campaign is raffling off tickets to the president's downsized election night rally in Chicago. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina writes with "some bad news":
I'm asking you to dig a little deeper, Edward:
We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.
The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.
We know what that means—more and more misleading, negative ads trashing the President, you, me, and everything we've accomplished together over the past four years.
And we know what we have to do…
After a year and a half of building and fighting and getting ready for Election Day, we cannot allow ourselves to be outdone at the very end.
On November 7th, when this campaign is behind us, you'll be glad you stepped up now.
Here's the good news: Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a free trip to Chicago where you'll meet the President and have front-row tickets to his speech on Election Night.
