President Barack Obama is about to deliver his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, but there’s still time for some fundraising.
Obama’s campaign sent out an e-mail tonight with the subject line, “Before I take the stage’,’ asking for $5.
“Before I go on stage to accept the nomination, there’s one thing I need to say: Thank you,” the e-mail read. “It’s because you’ve got my back that I’m here. And if we win this, it will be because of you, too.”
Then comes the plea: “Can you pitch in $5 or more right now?” with an e-mail link to make a donation.
The e-mail, signed by “Barack,” closes with “This is my last campaign, and knowing you’re with me means everything. I can’t do this without you.”
