Can you fulfill your pledge?

The latest polls are truly frightening: Many of our top Progressive Heroes are in danger, and Republicans are poised to take over the House. It's not too late to turn this election around—but we need to fully fund our Stop the Takeover campaign. To do that, we're counting on your $75 pledge. Can you make a donation today?

Dear MoveOn member,

Earlier this month, you were one of over 20,000 MoveOn members who pledged to chip in the $1.1 million we need for our big plan to stop the Republicans and their corporate allies from taking over Congress.

Since then, the polls have gotten even scarier.

In Wisconsin, Sen. Russ Feingold is trailing by at least 6 points.1 In Nevada, Majority Leader Harry Reid is tied with tea-party extremist Sharron Angle.2 Nationwide, Republicans have a 63% chance of taking over the House and unseating Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to New York Times analyst Nate Silver.3

It's not too late to turn this election around, but grassroots progressives need to step up to the plate and fight as hard as we did in 2008. And that means we need to fully fund our campaign immediately—and even expand it if we can.

Since every dollar counts, we're counting on you to fulfill your pledge of $75. Can you make a donation today?

We've already run ads pushing back against corporate smear campaigns, and this week we're sending the first wave of MoveOn volunteers into key campaign offices to help get out the vote.

With additional resources, we'll be able to expand on the key pieces of our campaign:

  • We're firing up the recruitment engine we used to turn out hundreds of thousands of volunteers for the Obama campaign in 2008. In the next six weeks, we're planning to make 500,000 calls to build a grassroots army and get out the vote.
  • Our team of expert field organizers and specially trained volunteer leaders are working around the clock to expose the corporate money behind Republican candidates in key congressional districts. 
  • And every time the right wing tries to smear Democrats who voted for the health care bill, we're pushing back with hard-hitting ads and grassroots media campaigns

We're counting on you to fulfill your pledge of $75. Can you make a donation today?

Thanks for all you do.
