Yesterday we found out Mitt Romney and the Republican Party outraised us for the first time in this election.
In fact, it’s the first time that the Obama organization has been outraised by an opponent since 2007.
If you just want to cut to the chase, you can donate to Barack Obama now.
Now, here are a few things you should know about this race in the aftermath of yesterday’s news:
- We are not guaranteed to win this election. If there’s anyone still out there acting like we have this thing in the bag, do me a favor and tell them they’re dead wrong.
- Now that Mitt Romney has locked up his party‘s nomination, yesterday’s numbers are only the beginning. The Republican big-dollar donors and special-interest cash will only keep coming out of the woodwork, lining up to support him.
- The $76 million the Romney campaign and Republican Party raised in May doesn’t even take into consideration the additional $75+ million that right-wing ideologues and corporate interests have already spent on ads attacking Obama. (Those groups plan to spend $1 billion when it’s all said and done.)
If you’re ready to do something right now, then help send a clear signal to the folks on the other side that our base of grassroots supporters will match them.
We may have been outraised this time around, but we won’t be outhustled.
Pitch in what you can today—and let’s do this the right way.
