I'll cut to the chase: If we don’t hit our goal before Saturday’s midnight FEC deadline, we may give the Republicans the tiny advantage they need to snatch the Senate away from you.

The good news is, we have real momentum. President Obama, Tim Kaine in Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin have all built slim margins in the latest polls.

But we know too well that polling in March won’t matter a bit in November if Republicans spend a tidal wave of Koch Brothers’ cash clouding the truth with the lies and smears that have been the GOP trademark for as long as you and I can remember.

Trust me -- it works. And this time it could cost us the Senate. Believe me. I know firsthand. And I'm not willing to turn back the clock to the days when the Senate was a rubber stamp for Republican extremism.

I flat-out refuse to put our majority at risk and see the American peoples' agenda endangered. That’s why I need you today, this minute.

We know what the Republicans do when they think they can get away with it. They find a few radical right-wing millionaires to bankroll TV ads and smear campaigns that tear down Democrats.

These extremists are already at it in key Senate races across the country. Ads slamming Claire McCaskill in Missouri, Jon Tester in Montana, and Sherrod Brown in Ohio with half-truths and outright lies are already going full blast.

The DSCC knows how to fight back. We build incredible campaigns on the ground in battleground states to identify our voters and get them to the polls.

Winning with honor isn't easy -- it takes a long time and it takes a fight every single day. We simply need the campaign resources now – in the next three days – or we can’t meet every milestone every day.
Your contribution before Saturday’s midnight deadline is vitally important. We have to be able to respond to the dirty tricks and the outright lies so we can re-elect President Obama and defend our majority.

The stakes are as clear as they can be. I need you invested in Democratic victory immediately. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Your support right here, right now could make or break the amazing nationwide campaign we're building every second every day:


John Kerry
