Can I count on you?
Tonight's deadline is the most important moment of our campaign so far.
If we are going to triumph over Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, and all the secret special interest billionaires trying to buy our race, we have to hit our goal before midnight tonight — there's only $8,752 left to go.
Will you make a $5 donation right now?
I'm incredibly proud of the grassroots movement we've built already. Over 33,000 people have stepped up to take ownership in this campaign — and more than 1,000 have volunteered their time to talk directly to voters in their community.
This is what a winning campaign looks like — and this is what a campaign looks like when it's fueled by real people and not just a couple of billionaires.
But our opponents — anonymous deep-pocketed special interests — aren't sparing any expense. They know that I represent the people of Missouri, not big oil or corrupt government contractors, so they are willing to spend tens of millions to replace me with a special interest rubber stamp.
We have to fight fire with fire. Give $5 today and you could be the one that puts us over the top before midnight:
Years from now, historians will point to this election as a turning point in American democracy.
When they do, let's make sure they are talking about the moment when grassroots donors like you triumphed over special interests and proved that our vote isn't for sale.
Thanks for standing with me,
