It's almost time to get my kids into their Halloween costumes, so I'll keep this short: The President of the United States asked you to make one of the last few donations we need to hit our goal of 35,000.
I know you'll step up before midnight:

Subject: This is too scary
I know it's Halloween -- and I like a good haunted house or horror movie as much as the next guy. But I've gotta say, what we heard from the 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls during their debate this week is a little too scary for my taste.
Time and time again, they talk about more tax cuts for the folks at the very top, even though we can clearly see that there is no evidence to show that that would grow the economy. They want to roll back Wall Street reform and go back to letting the big banks run wild. And let's not forget -- of course, they want to repeal the Affordable Care Act!
We've come so far over the last seven years. By almost any measure out there, our economy has seen significant progress. We've seen 13.2 million new jobs created, unemployment at 5.1 percent, and 67 straight months of private-sector job growth -- the longest streak on record.
I'm proud of the work we've done, and I'll be proud to stand by any one of the great Democrats we have running in 2016 to continue this work. But we need your help to make sure they have the resources they'll need to win. We're trying to reach our goal of 35,000 grassroots donations by midnight tonight -- can I count on you to pitch in $3 or whatever you can to get us there?
If you've saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.
