The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee – the political arm of Senate Democrats – this afternoon sent a desperate note out to supporters pleading for money to counter Mitt Romney’s fundraising edge, which it said had “destroyed” Obama’s lead in the polls.
Here’s an excerpt from the message:
friend — Mitt Romney has won the fundraising race for two consecutive months, and the last month of polling shows it has destroyed President Obama’s lead:
We only have 102 days left until the election, and Romney gets closer to executing a full GOP takeover every day we don’t hit our fundraising goal.
The email, sent by DSCC Political Director Crystal King under the subject line “it’s gone,” includes a link to a fundraising page and a request to “pitch in $5 to Democrats to turn these numbers around.”
King says the DSCC is some $500,000 short of its July fundraising goal with only four days left to go.
The latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll suggests things may be even worse for Romney, putting him ahead of Obama by 49 percent -44 percent.
