Keep going!
Hey, folks…
Wow—we’re really flying here. In the last 5 hours, we have made
23,114 volunteer-recruitment calls into battleground states!
Here are the top 5 callers in the last 5 hours:
99 calls—Dee B., Bowie, MD
93 calls—Andrew R., Flagstaff, AZ
69 calls—Tim D., Newton, MA
68 calls—Danielle, New York, NY
66 calls—Kenneth L., New York, NY
To meet our goal, we need 45,000 more calls for Obama by the end of
this "power weekend"—can you sign up for a 20-minute shift today or
tomorrow? Just click here:
Check out this powerful story from one of the Obama volunteers you
recruited:
I’m a MoveOn member like you, and every chance I get, I’ve been
volunteering here in Lafayette, Indiana. It’s the most exciting,
joyful, amazing experience I can imagine—and sometimes it brings
tears to your eyes.
My friend and I were canvassing and registering voters the other day
here in Lafayette. We knocked on a door, and a woman came out who was
on the phone. She saw our campaign buttons, briefly put the phone
aside to tell us she was on an overseas call, and took our clipboard
to fill out a voter registration form while she continued to talk.
She was obviously on the phone with her husband, who seemed concerned
that someone had come to her door—he seemed to want to be sure she
was safe. She kept saying, "No, honey, it’s OK. They are Obama
volunteers. I’m registering to vote. It’s OK."
Then finally she said to him, "Honey, I have to register so I can
vote for Obama. He’s going to bring you home!"
It was a beautiful moment. But the truth is, everyone who spends time
knocking on doors meets people who don’t know where to vote, or how
to vote early, or just need some reassurance that it’s okay to vote
for Obama. They’re grateful to see you.
There are fewer than 72 hours before polls open. Can you sign up for
a 20-minute shift recruiting volunteers this weekend? Just click
here:
Thanks for all you do as we elect Obama president.

Re: UPDATE: Obama campaign finances
james m —
Yesterday the McCain campaign said they would outspend our campaign
by $10 million in the final days. This is on top of recent news that,
as of October 15th, our opponents had $20 million more in the bank
than our campaign and the DNC combined.
As of this morning, they may be able to outspend us — but your
generosity in response to my last email gives me hope that by the end
of the day, we can rise to the challenge.
We knew the McCain campaign was saving its resources for a last-
minute blitz, and now we know just how much they’ll pour into it.
No matter what, we need to match what our opponents are spending in
the final stretch. We can’t slow down between now and Election Day.
And if you give again today — any amount — you could be one of 5
previous donors who will have a front row seat for the big Election
Night event in Chicago with Barack.
Can you make a donation of $25 or more right now?
I track the donations coming in, and there’s no doubt about it —
supporters like you have fundamentally changed how presidential
campaigns are funded. You drive this campaign.
That’s why Barack wants you to be there on Election Night as the
results come in.
If you’re selected, we’ll fly you and a guest in and put you up in a
hotel. You’ll go backstage at the big event and — no matter what
happens — you’ll have a front row seat to history as we celebrate
the supporters who got us over the finish line.
Any donation counts — whatever you can afford. Make a donation of
$25 or more before midnight Sunday and you could have a front row
seat to history on Election Night:
These last 3 days, we have to redouble our efforts. And we’re
counting on you more than ever before.
Let’s make this happen.
Thanks,
MM

james m —
I’m the Chief Financial Officer for Barack Obama’s campaign. I track
the donations coming in and the expenses going out.
I asked for the opportunity to write to you directly so that I could
try to explain what’s happening right now.
This organization has thousands of employees and spends millions of
dollars a day — and at the moment we’re doing it without a safety
net.
Our spending plans have been stretched by John McCain’s negative
attacks and the overwhelming resources of the Republican National
Committee.
As of October 15th, John McCain and the RNC together had nearly $20
million more in cash than the combined total of Obama for America and
the DNC. And just this week, we’re facing new and unexpected spending
against us in Montana and West Virginia.
Your incredible generosity has gotten us this far. But right now we
need your help more than ever to get this campaign across the finish
line.
Please donate $25 or whatever you can afford right now:
My team and I are working to stretch every dollar in order to keep as
many paths to victory open as possible. But we need whatever help you
can provide for this crucial final stretch.
Thank you,

Your weekend plans
james m —
Time is quickly running out, but you can still make a huge difference
in how this election is decided.
It’s going to take an unprecedented push by supporters like you to
get us over the top — and there are still plenty of ways you can
take this campaign into your own hands.
Help make history. Please check out the activities below and fit as
many as you can into your schedule.
Drive for Change — Colorado
One of the most powerful ways to make a difference is talk to swing
voters face-to-face or help out at the polls in a battleground state.
If you can grab a couple of friends and head out of town for a day or
two, Colorado Campaign for Change staff will be there to greet you
and provide everything you need to succeed. No experience is
necessary.
Sign up today — there’s a volunteer shift in Colorado with your name
on it.
Call from Home
We need to make hundreds of thousands of calls to voters in
battleground states today through Election Day. Right from your own
home, on your own schedule, you can call voters in Pennsylvania, a
crucial battleground state that is the McCain campaign’s best path to
victory. We’ll give you the phone numbers and the talking points. It
couldn’t be easier.
Get your list of Pennsylvania voters to call right now.
Each passing day is an opportunity we’ll never have again to change
America. I hope you’ll reach out to fellow voters before it’s too
late to create the change we need.
Thanks for all you’ve done,
Jon

Unexpected opportunity
james m —
I’m writing to report that we’re seeing a surge of support in states
we didn’t expect to be close contests, including Georgia and North
Dakota.
But the latest battleground is a major opportunity:
John McCain’s home state of Arizona — where we go on the air today.
Will you make a donation of $25 or more today to expand our efforts
in these new battleground states? Democrats haven’t been able to
compete in these states in years — and each could open a new path to
victory on Election Day.
As a bonus, any donation you make today means you could be selected
for a trip to join Barack in Chicago on Election Night. We’ll fly you
and a guest in, put you up in a hotel, and make sure you have some of
the best seats for our huge public event with tens of thousands of
supporters:
Volunteers and staff are on the move in these new battleground
states, and if we can provide them with the right support, they could
put us over the top four days from now.
We can’t take anything for granted, and this election is too
important to ignore any potential path to victory. We need your help
right now.
Please make a donation to help us change the electoral map, and bring
a real change to our country:
It’s a volatile political landscape, and in the final four days we
have to take the fight to our opponents everywhere we can.
Thank you,
David

Obama needs you in Iowa
Dear MoveOn member,
There are four days left. And there aren’t enough Obama volunteers in
Council Bluffs, Iowa.
The campaign has a message for anyone within driving distance of
Council Bluffs: come in and volunteer! The campaign needs help
reaching out to voters. This weekend is the key to winning Iowa, and
Iowa is a crucial part of the victory plan for the whole country.
We’ve set a MoveOn goal of recruiting 25 volunteers. There’s no time
to lose—can you drive to Council Bluffs this weekend to volunteer for
Obama?
Yes, I’ll drive to Iowa!
No, can’t make it.
Forget the laundry, leave the dirty dishes in the sink—this is it,
our chance to make history. It’s time to help win Iowa, and the
country, for Obama.
Thank for all you do,
–Adam, Michael, Ray, Aisling and the rest of the team
P.S. If you’re curious about what it’s like to volunteer in a
battleground state, check out the story from a MoveOn member who has
been knocking on doors for Obama in Indiana—and then don’t forget to
sign up!
Dear MoveOn member,
You’ve got to get out there!
I’m a MoveOn member like you, and every chance I get, I’ve been
volunteering here in Lafayette, Indiana. It’s the most exciting,
joyful, amazing experience I can imagine—and sometimes it brings
tears to your eyes.
My friend and I were canvassing and registering voters the other day
here in Lafayette. We knocked on a door, and a woman came out who was
on the phone. She saw our campaign buttons, briefly put the phone
aside to tell us she was on an overseas call, and took our clipboard

She was obviously on the phone with her husband, who seemed concerned
that someone had come to her door—he seemed to want to be sure she

knocking on doors meets people who don’t know where to vote, or how
to vote early, or just need some reassurance that it’s okay to vote
for Obama. They’re grateful to see you.
This year broke every voter registration record in history—but we
only have 6 days left to make sure all those new voters actually show
up at the polls. If they do, we’ll win. The Obama campaign needs you
in Council Bluffs this weekend, and I’m asking you, as your fellow
MoveOn member and Obama volunteer, to come out and help—even if
you’ve never done it before. Click here:

Barack Obama – The Workers’ Candidate
Dear James M nordlund,
On the issues, Barack Obama is the clear choice for workers.
Healthcare Coverage
Obama’s plan will:
– expand coverage
– lower costs
– improve care and
– eliminate denial based on pre-existing conditions.
McCain’s plan will:
– tax healthcare benefits to fund a health insurance "credit".
– force us to use this credit to buy insurance from huge
insurance companies.
– likely eliminate our employer based healthcare benefits
Retirement Security
Obama’s plan will:
– strengthen Social Security and prevent privatization
– prevent cuts in Social Security and Medicare and
– lower prescription drug prices for seniors
McCain’s plan will:
-privatize social security
-replace guaranteed retirement benefits with private accounts
-place our retirement at the mercy of the stock market.
Rights at Work — Freedom to Form a Union
Obama will:
– protect workers’ rights to form a union without employer
harassment or intimidation.
– protect our right to bargain for better wages, benefits and
working conditions
– sign the Employee?s Free Choice Act into law
McCain will:
– block passage of the Employees? Free Choice Act
– Press passage of a national "Right to Work" for Less Law that
would attempt to eliminate unions altogether

Will you join me on Election Night?
james m —
I want you to be there with me on Election Night when the results
come in.
We’re planning a big event that will include tens of thousands of
supporters in Grant Park in downtown Chicago.
We’re saving some of the best seats in the house for 5 people who
have given to the campaign before — and who decide to make a
donation one last time before Sunday at midnight.
If you’re selected, you can bring a guest, and we’ll fly you in and
put you up in a hotel for the night. You’ll go backstage at the big
event and — no matter what happens — you’ll have a front row seat
to history as we celebrate the supporters who got us over the finish
line.
Any donation counts — whatever you can afford. Show your support at
this crucial time with a donation of $25 or more, and you could join
me on Election Night:
This movement for change has been a testament to the power of
ordinary Americans coming together to achieve extraordinary things.
I look forward to having you there on Election Night.
Thank you,
Barack

In case you missed it
james m —
Last night, Barack took to the airwaves to make the case for real
change. He used the time to tell the stories of ordinary people who
need real solutions to their problems.
The presentation reached its finale with Barack addressing the nation
live from Florida — I’ve included the video of that moment below.
But right now, I need to ask you for help.
We just learned that the McCain campaign and the Republican National
Committee had a $20 million cash advantage on October 15th. That
means we can expect to see a fierce blitz of negativity in the final
days — so-called "robocalls," mail pieces, and TV ads filled with
smears and false attacks.
We can’t let our opponents’ low-road tactics prevail. To stand up to
this last-minute spending spree, we need to step up our efforts.
Your generosity has made this movement possible. Will you watch
Barack’s speech and make another donation of $25 or more today?
https://donate.barackobama.com/forthefinish
The resources we have to get our message out in the next 5 days could
make all the difference.
Thanks for your support,
Joe

You were there in the beginning
james m —
You were one of the first million people to own a piece of this
campaign.
You helped build this movement when the odds were long and Election
Day was far in the future. Now, in exactly one week, we have a very
real chance of electing Barack Obama the next President of the United
States.
But we’re not there yet.
Yesterday in Canton, Ohio, Barack made a powerful case for why we
need to keep fighting right through Election Day.
Will you watch Barack’s closing argument and make a donation of $25
or more to get every vote we need to win?
You’ve been part of this movement from the start. Now that we’re so
close, Barack needs your help more than ever.
For the next week, we need to work like the future of our country
depends on it — because it does.
We only have one opportunity to make history and get this country on
a new path. And if we let up now, John McCain will win.
Watch Barack’s speech and make a donation of $25 or more now:
Thank you for everything you’re doing to support this campaign in the
final push,
David
