Things still aren't looking good, John. We emailed you earlier this week about the state of our online fundraising, hoping to close our fundraising gap. Unfortunately, things didn't improve and we're still not on track to hit our goals.
We already had to cut our voter contact budget. And that was before the latest poll showed us trailing our opponent by one point. Mitch McConnell is already spending more than $80 MILLION on nasty, misleading ads -- they're working. Now we're facing even more budget cuts because of our fundraising dip, which means we could fall even further behind at this critical moment.
This is the closest race in the country, and it's the Democrats' best shot to flip the Senate. With Election Day so close, we can't afford to fall further behind. But right now, we're not even on track to hit today's daily fundraising goal.
We need to raise $80,000 by midnight tonight to hit our daily goal and make up for lost time -- pitch in $5 right away to help us get back on track. Every donation helps us flip this seat and take back the Senate.
This race is tied, and national Republicans are doing -- and spending -- everything they can to defeat us at the last minute. Control of the Senate is on the line, so we cannot let them get away with this.
If we don't close our fundraising gap by midnight, we'll have to make additional tough budget cuts. We may have to pull our TV ads or scale down our voter contact program, which means we won't be able to reach the number of voters we need to win. Hitting today's $80,000 goal will make sure that doesn't happen.
We're quickly running out of time to close our fundraising gap. Falling short by even just $5 of our daily goal could cost us this race. Pitch in right away to help us hit our $80,000 goal and flip the Senate.
