As always, thank you
Michelle Obama sent this note about tonight’s deadline:
I've learned to shrug off what Barack's opponents say about him. We know who he really is: a wonderful father and leader who's in this because he wants to make a difference in people's lives.
But not everyone knows him as you and I do. And because of the nonstop negative ads the other side is running against him, we'll have to work even harder to remind folks who Barack really is.
Tonight's fundraising deadline is one of the most important we'll face together. I hope you'll take the chance to show you've got Barack's back—chip in before midnight.
Campaigns are never easy, and we're lucky to have supporters like you by our side.
The other side is outspending us, and they're stepping up their attacks. But we'll be standing strong, thanks to the support of nearly 3 million people who are helping win this election the right way.
What we do between now and midnight is going to play a big part in making that happen, so please pitch in whatever you can before then.
As always, thank you.
