This might be the most desperate and woeful plea for campaign donations I've seen yet from the Obama camp:
I don't want to lose this election.
Not because of what losing would mean for me -- Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.
But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.
This race is very close.
I'm not willing to watch the progress you and I worked so hard to achieve be undone.
Time is running out to make an impact -- please don't wait any longer. Donate $5 or more today:
I believe in you. If you stick with me, and if we fight harder than ever for the next two weeks, I truly believe we can't lose.
P.S. -- I don't know what Election Night will hold, but I'd like you to be a part of the event here in Chicago. Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a chance to meet me -- airfare and hotel for you and a guest are covered.
