we got beat in fundraising
Obama Campaign: We Got Beat
Last night, Jim Messina, Barack Obama’s campaign manager, sent out a mass email to the millions-strong support list. The header: “We got beat.” Here’s the text:
For the first time in this campaign, we got beat in fundraising.
The Romney campaign and the Republican Party raised more than $76 million last month, compared to our $60 million.
We knew this moment would come when Romney secured the nomination.
What happens next is up to you.
Help close the gap right now -- make a donation of $3 or more.
I want to be clear: We'll always have more people pitching in.
We know that only 15 percent of Romney's May totals came from people giving less than $250, compared to 98 percent in that category for us.
We don't have the special-interest and high-dollar donor advantage that Romney has. Barack Obama has you, and we are bound and determined to fight back on behalf of a country where everyone gets a fair shot and a fair shake.
From the beginning we've built this campaign together, from the bottom up. More people giving a little bit is the only way to compete with a few people giving a lot.
So let's fight like hell and win this thing:
More coming soon,
Obama for America
P.S. -- Together, our team raised more than $60 million in May -- even more impressive when you hear that the average donation was about $55. Check out the rest of our numbers.

But the progressives don't really need that much money when they can get for free. See how much good Gwen did in Wisconsin with not a penny spent (maybe they shoulda invested in an author AND singing lessons)
If diversity were such a strength, why do blacks preach “solidarity”?
