|Diane, I'm so proud of everything our grassroots supporters like you have done to make sure our next president is a Democrat. But like President Obama said, that's only half the battle -- we have to make sure we're working just as hard to elect Democrats to House and Senate seats all across the country.|
When the President emailed yesterday, we needed 97 donations from your community to our Democratic Majority Fund. As of now, we still need 52 before our deadline on Thursday. Will you heed the President's call and make one today?
Thanks so much.
All the best,

Subject: Can you make one of 97 donations from your community?
Together, we've moved this country forward in ways that many thought impossible eight years ago. But our work doesn't end when I leave the White House.
I'd like to tell you that electing a Democratic president this November will be enough to make sure we can tackle the challenges of the future. I'd like to say that, even without a functioning and supportive Congress, the next president could reform our criminal justice system, transform our educational system, continue to grow our economy and shrink our uninsured rate, and protect the rights of the most vulnerable amongst us.
But that's not how our government works.
One person simply can't do this work alone -- even with remarkable support from people like you. We have three branches for a reason -- to get things done, to compromise, to balance one another. But that balance is thrown off when a group of Republican lawmakers is only focused on partisan political obstructionism, without concern for the consequences.
And just recently, we've seen scientists urging immediate action on climate change, people standing in line for hours to vote because they no longer have the full protections of the Voting Rights Act, and Republican lawmakers voting to legalize discrimination against the LGBT community.
Look: I know we are going to fight our hardest to put another Democrat in the Oval Office, but we need to also make sure that we give that person allies they can work with -- and the way we do that is by electing Democrats up and down the ballot this November. That's why the DNC has created the Democratic Majority Fund. Pitch in $3 or whatever you can before Thursday's deadline to say you're committed to giving the next Democratic president a real chance to make a difference in American lives for generations to come.
