It will NEVER be enough...

This is a message I get.. Somehow this season I ended up on the "progressives" mailing list

Obama has $65,000,000.00 left in his campaign kitty. they are trying to raise 100k to "finish the Job."

"You tore down walls and revealed a brand new America. We danced in the streets and cried tears of sheer joy, all because you hoped and worked and gave everything you had.

You - the Democratic grassroots - put Barack Obama into the White House. And you sent at least 6 new senators to Washington to help him change this country.

Everyone I talk to across America is singing your praises and, personally, I want to extend a huge, huge thank you. You won an astounding victory.

However, President-elect Obama has warned us about "the enormity of the task that lies ahead." The best way to help him hit the ground running is to win the three outstanding Senate races. They're still counting votes in Alaska. Al Franken is headed for a recount in Minnesota. And we have one more chance to knock off Saxby Chambliss in a December 2 runoff.

The Republicans are already pouring money and resources into these states. They already have TV ads on the air. The DSCC needs your help to raise $100,000 - $5 and $10 at a time - before midnight Friday so they can keep pace and level the playing field.

Our Democratic senators remain committed to winning these three states and a group of them will triple every single dollar given before midnight Friday. That runoff election will be here sooner than you think, and any amount - even as little as $5 - can make a real difference.

The Republicans are desperate. They'll do whatever it takes to win these races. Norm Coleman has already filed suit in Minnesota to disqualify votes, but the real action is going down in Georgia.

I know what these runoffs are like. I helped Mary Landrieu win one in Louisiana six years ago, and I'm getting ready to go down to Georgia to help Jim Martin. It's going to get nasty.

Saxby Chambliss is already scraping the bottom of the decency barrel and exploiting images of the 9/11 attacks in his latest campaign ads. Freedom's Watch, the Orwellian-named right-wing attack dog, has already launched a half-million dollar ad buy slamming Democrat Jim Martin.

All the Republican heavy-hitters - John McCain, Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani, and even Sarah Palin - are rumored to be rushing to Georgia to campaign for Saxby Chambliss.

Jim Martin has run a terrific campaign. He is on the very cusp of victory. In fact, more people voted against Chambliss than voted for him. If we get our people to the polls, we'll win this race.

With as little as $5 from you, the DSCC can put him over the top. Their proven campaign plan - effective TV ads, winning the message battle, and a tremendous investment in door-to-door organizing - has already won 6 Senate races.

They're doing everything they can to win the Georgia run-off and to make sure the will of the voters is heard in Alaska and Minnesota. But they need your help.

You have already won an amazing and transformative victory with all of your time, money, and extraordinary hard work.

But Barack Obama will need every last vote in the Senate to bring this country desperately needs. It's up to us to give him everything necessary for a new beginning.

Consider Franken votes went up mysteriously 249 in ONE precinct (strong Democrat precinct) alone when they found out Norm Beat him by a small margin.. The original count must not have been manipulated enough...
