Forget about “Frankenstorm”. You want to know who is really panicking now? Jim Messina and Julianna Smoot are shaking in their boots. Why? Because Mitt Romney’s campaign managed to collect $21 million more than Obama’s campaign so far this month!
First, from Jim Messina at around 6pm EDT today:
I’m asking you to dig deep, because I have some bad news:
We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.
The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.
Then Julianna Smoot chiming in after 11pm EDT:
We just found out how much more money Mitt Romney and the Republicans have in the bank: $45 million.
I hope that sounds like a lot to you, because it is. And it doesn’t even include outside groups.
That is a massive advantage to have with such a short time left. We have the power to decide whether that will be the determining factor in this election — but only if everyone gets on board and does their part.
It’s no secret that the Obama campaign has been begging for cash several times daily, but now their pleas are getting downright desperate. So what does that mean to conservatives? This is no time to coast. If you haven’t given to the Romney campaign yet, now’s a great time. Getting Messina and Smoot desperate is one thing. Beating them on election day is the real goal, though.
