Barack Obama supports the DCCC

Barack Obama sent out this email asking for contributions to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

The DCCC helps elect Democrats to the House of Representatives. A majority of Democrats will be important in helping Obama push his agenda.


Dear Paul,

Barack Obama
America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for the country we love.

You and I are clear about our goal. We are out to change Washington in a deep and lasting way, charting a new course for America. That means winning the White House. But it also means building a strong foundation in Congress by electing dozens of new, change-oriented candidates nationwide.

June 30th marks the first FEC reporting deadline since I have become the presumptive Democratic nominee. It's clear that media pundits and our opponents will use Democratic fundraising totals as a measure of our party's strength this November.

Today, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is launching its United for Change Campaign to show Democratic strength across the electoral map by the June 30th reporting deadline. House Democrats are joining us to help and will match every gift 2-to-1 today, making any gift of $50 worth $150.

The sole mission of the DCCC is to guide Democratic candidates for the House to victory. They were the driving force behind the powerful 2006 victories that made Nancy Pelosi the first woman Speaker of the House.

Our campaign has the potential to redraw the political map and help Democrats get elected all across the country - especially in places where Democrats have not fared well for decades. And, already this year, House Democrats have won three remarkable special election victories in historically Republican districts -- despite outside special-interest groups spending millions attacking our candidates.

Show your personal support and unity today in our first test together before the June 30th deadline. I hope you will answer our call.

I believe we can win this election, and more importantly, I believe we can transform the electoral map and win a new majority for change, so we can finally solve the problems we have been talking about for decades.

Please stand with me and support the DCCC today. Let's add our strength, energy, and stand together United for Change.

I look forward to the moment when I can stand, as your President, before a Congress filled with dozens of new members ready, willing and able to join us in driving change forward. Your immediate donation to the DCCC can help make that moment a reality.

Thanks for helping out with this,

P.S. Answer our call for unity and strength -- contribute now at
