fighting back

June 30th at 11:59 p.m. is the first big deadline of this campaign. At that moment, we’ll close the books on this financial quarter and begin preparing our fundraising report to the Federal Election Commission, the press, and the public.

Our opponents are chasing Washington lobbyists and special-interest PACs for big checks ahead of the deadline …..we refuse money from Washington lobbyists and special-interest PACs. And rather than setting a goal of millions of dollars, we’re setting a goal of 550,000 grassroots donations by the June 30th deadline.

The number of contributions we earn in this quarter will be the definitive record of how strong our support was at the very start … Will you chip in another $15 or whatever you can afford to help us hit our goal? ….What happens between now and Thursday will shape the story of how the 2012 race began.

Help write that story with a donation of $15 or more here

Thanks,

Jim Messina
Campaign Manager
Obama for America

Roll Call: Familiar faces are behind a new effort to challenge President Barack Obama. The Republican operatives who created Tea Party Express, the leading political action committee of the tea party movement, recently launched a separate PAC called the Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama.

By creating the independent group, the organizers can raise more money and be a stronger force in the upcoming presidential race.

The new group has the ambitious goal of organizing 1 million people against the president through television ads, online petitions and grass-roots events. More than 46,000 people have signed the group’s online petition “to defeat Barack Obama” since January.
