Looking at the polls…
Rahm Emanuel just sent this message to DCCC supporters:
I've been looking at the polls and I don't see a single reason why Democrats can't retain our strong House Majority with enough support. But time is running out.
Right now, dozens of Democratic House candidates are in the promising -- but precarious -- situation of trying to maintain a narrow lead in the final 14 days.
You've worked hard to carry our candidates to the edge of success. Don't let Republicans scratch and claw their way back. Midnight tonight is a critical deadline to get money in the door to send out to key battleground races. Even a contribution of $5 can make the difference. But with only 14 days to go we need to get support on the ground now.
Contribute $5, $10 or more before Midnight Tonight to our Two Weeks Out ad buy fund and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by House Democrats.
As a former DCCC Chairman, I know what kind of tough decisions they are being faced with and with just 14 days until Election Day, decisions are being made almost hourly about where to invest our resources. Every single dollar makes a difference.
This year, we have to help them meet a dangerous new challenge as outside shadowy GOP front groups continue to pour money into deceitful and misleading ads.
We can't have a single regret on the day after Election Day. It's time to go all in.
P.S. In these final days, we can't let a single false attack go unanswered. Every dollar you give will help another House Democrat avoid being crushed by outside group spending. Contribute $5, $10 or more before Midnight Tonight to our Two Weeks Out ad buy fund and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by House Democrats.
