Following is an email from Tim Kaine, running mate for Hillary Clinton:
I don't want to wake up on November 9th and feel like we didn't give it our all.
But right now, we're not hitting our goals, and that needs to change. Quickly. If we don't outraise Trump and the GOP this month -- before the fundraising deadline on August 31st -- the public donor report published by the Federal Election Commission will show that his team is stronger than ours.
And they'll start September even more confident they can beat us.
Chip in $3 or more right now to help us hit our goal so that when the report is released, everyone knows we're the stronger team.
[...]We're down to the wire for August -- we have to meet our benchmark and show the public we're stronger. Chip in now to make sure Trump and Republicans across the country know we mean business and have no intention of letting them take this election on November 8th:
This is still a little new for me -- it's just my second fundraising deadline of the campaign, and I want to do everything I can to help us blow it out of the water. I can't wait to see what we do together.
